At the very end of Mokuleia where the road dead-ends is Kaena Point State Park with its secluded sandy coves and huge wide-open spaces. The hiking trail follows a deeply rutted unpaved Jeep road with dozens of small seaward paths branching off to the ocean’s edge. If you opt to hike the full round-trip trek from Kaena Point to Yokohama Bay on the Leeward Coast, you’ll need roughly three hours, ample stamina, plenty of water, sunscreen, snacks, body cover and your camera.

We drove as far as we could and my husband hiked on for about 3 miles to point. Great views. The breaking waves were spectacular to watch. No facilities. Ok to hike. Probably not for small children. Rugged in places.

My husband and I don't hike. But we love beautiful places and gorgeous sunsets and during whale season and occasional whale sighting. We drive to Ka 'ena Point and park close to the spot where hikers begin to hike and just sit and take in...More

We parked our car at Yokohama Beach and walked up to "land's end". The sun can be unforgiving so don't forget your sunscreen, hat and enough water. Underway we were in awe of the magnificent views along the coast and the power of the breaking...More

I think you can drive here on the West Coast side and North Shore side. Both sides are very remote. I think the Keana Point trail connects the two but am not sure. This area must be visited for the views and the Hawaiian blue...More

The hike was very muddy and a bit long, but along the way, I saw amazing waves crashing against really cool rock formations. the different coves every 200 feet were neat to watch. The trail was very muddy, but you had the roar of the...More

Long hike but beautiful and perfect spot to see the Hawaian monk Seal, though we didn't see any during that trip, but we saw several birds in the bird trail. The pathway has almost no areas for shade, so try to do the hike early...More

A beautiful area to explore on the west side of Oahu. Ancient lava flows into the ocean. Beaches were great. Not too crowded.

This is a 5-mile return hike to the point on dust roads, so ensure you bring along loads of water, sunscreen, and sunglasses to protect your eyes from the dust. Go earlier so you'll avoid the midday sun.

I drove to the park just to check out the park. To my surprise, the beaches and park were practically deserted during the middle of the day. Perhaps it is because the area is a bit of a drive from Haleiwa and there are beaches/parks...More

I don't recall any gates or times posted. So I believe it is open 24/7 365 days.

It is definitely best for hiking, not a good trail for bike riding... to rough. I feel it would be dangerous at night, as the cliffs are so high and open to the water below... you could easily slip off the cliff and into... More
