Without being out on a boat, there are few spots that give you such views up and down the coastline. The arch is beautiful and watching the waves break against is really fun to... read more

Without being out on a boat, there are few spots that give you such views up and down the coastline. The arch is beautiful and watching the waves break against is really fun to see. The rock here is rough and edgy, but creates some great contrast with the blue water and white mist of the breaking waves. The only... More

The photography options are good all day long as the sun is almost always in a good position relative to the cliff with the hole in it. My kids enjoyed the cliff jumping, but I recommend only jumping if someone else is and can report on the safety at that time based on tides/waves/etc. Parking if very limited and tour... More

We were staying just north of this spot and could see the waves breaking 20+ feet above the "ARCH" rock formation from our deck! Legend has it that the Mo'o (gaint lizard) was slain and cast in pieces into the ocean, making up the 5 rock formations at the point area! WAY COOL arch and rocks with waves breaking over... More

I learned about Laie Point from a travel guide and when we got onto the road we kept thinking we must have missed it, but eventually the road ends and we were there. We went there before going to the Polynesian Cultural Center as it is close by, but even if we drove far to go there, it would be... More

On the drive around the north shore we detoured here. Beautiful views a but crowded parking (like the rest of the island). Take the good camera...

This is a very picturesque stop. For the brave at heart & a good swimmer, one can jump off the cliff to cool off. When we were there, one of our guides jumped in, along with a couple of people from our tour group.

Laie Point is an incredible photo op on the north shore of Oahu. Our tour stopped here and I'm glad it did, got some pretty great shots here. Would have liked to have more time to explore though.

My family and I stopped briefly at Laie point, as we’d read that it was a hot stop to visit on the island of Oahu. Sure enough, it was everything we expected: a stunning, large gaping hole in a cliff out to the distance. It was great for a quick stop to take photos, but we didn’t stay long. Perhaps,... More

Nice view of the ocean; rock formation is unique, you can admire a natural arch formation in the middle of the water just couple hundred yards form the cliffs. If you are brave enough there are certain areas that you can jump of the cliffs! Between the houses you can find rock stairs that will take you to Bikini Beach... More

Great place to visit and so many different views to see. It's also an awesome place to jump off a cliff into the ocean if you're into that kind of thing.
