A getaway from the crowds - Makapuu lighthouse trail & Alan Davis Beach

Waimanalo, HI 96795, USA
14 Kudos
If you want an easy hike with views take the Makapuu lighthouse trail. It's a paved uphill walk on the southeast end of the island.

It's a good spot for locals and tourists alike. It's well maintained with easy parking and a gradual uphill climb to the top. You'll see a lot of locals running up and down the trail for exercise.

From the same parking lot you can add the Kaiwi Shoreline Trail to Alan Davis Beach. At the time we were the only ones there that made it out to the beach. We enjoyed looking out into the ocean just us two.
