Nice walk
Aug 2021 • Solo
The hike was nice! Its all newly paved so for inexperienced people its just a long walk up. The views were fantastic at all the stop off points and then at the very top! It was windy when I went, but it wasn't bad that I wouldn't do it again on a windy day.

I'm glad you had a good time! That side of the island is pretty windy once you get to the second half!

Nice hike
Great hike and nice views. Nice way to spend a few hours in the morning. The hike was easy as the road is paved. Sadly you can't go in the lighthouse anymore but there are plenty of hikes around it.

Oahu Excursions
Aug 2021 • Family
We could have driven ourselves, but having the shuttle was better. We had a little history on the way to our excursions. Water was provided. We didn’t have to worry about parking. Best thing about the trail, is that it is pavement. It was a great hike with rest stops and history along the way. Highly recommend.

Safe and Fun Trip
Jan 2021 • Couples
Makapu’u Lighthouse was a really nice and fun hike. We used Kaimana Tours shuttle to get there and they made sure we were safe and good to go. Our driver Diogo made sure to check our temperatures before getting in the shuttle. We had our masks on and so did he. There were bottles of hand sanitizers placed throughout the van as well. My fiancé and I got lucky because it was only us on the shuttle so it felt really safe and cozy, especially during these times were in. I would most definitely recommend Kaimana Tours for traveling around the island. Mahalo

Scenic hike!
Dec 2019
At the east of the island of Oahu you will find this trail which is fairly and easy hike as it is a paved road. It will take you around 45 minutes to conquer and you will enjoy scenic view. In our case, we had wind, rain and sun so be prepared. The views are genuinely nice, and it is enjoyable. Parking fills quickly and our suggestion is to come early as it opens.

Great inexpensive way to see the coast without renting a car.
Mar 2020
It was a nice 4 hr tour where you walked up the lighthouse trail yourself and the driver returned to get you. There were a couple of other scenic spots on the way and complimentary bottle of water. Highly recommend.
