From the trail's destination at Makapuu Head, one is rewarded with magnificent views of the windward coast and offshore islets, as well as the historic red-roofed Makapuu Lighthouse built in 1909, which makes a stunning picture against the deep blue sea below (the spectacular Makapuu Lighthouse with its 100+ year-old lighthouse made with an historic "hyper-radiant”e.g. super-size lens). On a clear day, you may even see Molokai and Lanai. The offshore islets are wildlife sanctuaries for Hawaiian seabirds, such as the aiwa, frigate bird, and tropicbird. Wear sneakers and comfortable clothes, bring a hat and sunscreen, and drink lots of water.

Amazing Views!!! Great Hike!!!
By MarcolaMahalo Verified Reviewer from CT on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

We did the "Makapu'u Lighthouse Trail Hike" with Kaimana Tours using our Go Oahu Cards, and I must say we had an amazing time. We were picked up within 5 minutes of the designated meeting time. Our guy was super friendly, knowledgeable and quite patient with our large group. He offered to take photos of us, explained to us interesting facts involving history and pointed outstanding views along the way. He even offered us all cold water bottles. The lighthouse is beautiful and the views were unforgettable. The trail in general is paved and fairly easy compared to Diamond Head and Koko Head trail. I would recommend to wear comfortable sneakers and proper clothes, bring a hat, a camera and sunscreen, also get hydrated. I would definitely recommend this hike and "Kaimana Tours" services. Mahalo for the blessed time we had and hopefully We'll see you guys again soon!

Comments about Smart Destinations :

My husband and i just came back from our first hawaiian trip, we were reffered b a friend of ours t Kaimana tours, and it was the best thing they could have done. We went on the Makapu hike and it was the highlight of our trip. They picked us up at hour hotel at the time booked(, i loved that they were punctual) our driver was very friendly and gave us a lot of information about the hike trail. It was amazing. When our trip was done he drove us back to the hotel for us to enjoy the rest of our day! My husband and i was so glad we booked this adventure and we would definitely recommend to others.

Comments about Smart Destinations :

I had really fun doing the Makapu'u Hike with Kaimana Tours.I had a great view and I saw many interesting things for example, I saw a whale while I was hiking.After I finished the hike the driver took me to Hanauma Bay because I requested to take the combo and I saw many wonderful things there(I would reccomend you to rent a dry snorkel).
