Kaena Point is well worth the trip. It is the most Western tip of Oahu. We approached the hike from the Mokuleia side (North side of island) via Farrington Highway.
Just drive all the way to the end of the road. There is ample parking and I didn’t feel like I had to worry about my car. The hike itself is basically just an easy walk down a long dirt road. It can be very hot so we started in the morning. It took us around 45-60 minutes to get to the point.
We stopped to take photos along the way. My “Map My Run” app clocked the distance at almost 6 miles to the point and back.
Kaena Point is home to a bird refuge for Albatross and Shearwaters. The road and paths are well marked so as not to disturb the breeding grounds.
Once out on the point, there are tide pools to explore and swim in, beautiful vistas to enjoy and you might be lucky enough to spot a seal or two.
All in all it was an incredible day. Don’t forget your water, snacks, sunblock and swim suit.
