I know that I’ve posted and written about the Makapu’u Lighthouse Trail on the eastern side of Oahu already, but I just had to write again about it and show you all some of the pictures this time around. The first time we went to the Makapu’u Lighthouse it was kind of miserable out. The rain and wind were hammering us from the west and we were all soaked by the time we got to the top and the lighthouse was less enjoyable.
Directions to Makapu’u Lighthouse:
The park and trailhead are located off of the Kalanianaole Highway (Hwy. 72) at the southeastern-most point of Oahu. From Honolulu, take the H1 freeway east until it becomes Highway 72. Follow the road beyond Hawaii Kai, Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach Park until you reach the park area adjacent to the highway. From the windward side, take the Kalanianaole Highway (Hwy. 72) southeast beyond Kailua, Waimanalo, and Makapu‘u Beach Park, after which the road climbs up toward Makapu‘u Head. The park will be on the left side of the highway.
