General Information

Description - Makapu'u Point State Wayside park encompasses 38 acres surrounding the lighthouse on O'ahu's southeastern point.

Attractions - A one mile (one-way) walk along an abandoned road leads to the lighthouse. The walk provides excellent views of the Pacific Ocean and the coastal cliffs along the southeastern O'ahu shoreline. Whales may occasionally be sighted. This is an uphill climb with a 500-foot elevation gain with often hot, dry and windy conditions. There are no facilities at this park so no drinking water or restrooms are available.

Recreation - Recreation opportunities at Makapu'u Point include coastal photography, walking, viewing scenery and the possibility of viewing whales.

Climate - The climate is pleasantly mild on O'ahu throughout the year. Temperatures vary annually between 60 and 90 degrees F. Summer temperatures range from 68 to 82 degrees F with the water usually near 80 degrees. Winter temperatures vary from 61 to 80 degrees F with the water temperature close to 77 degrees. More rainfall occurs during the winter than other seasons of the year and most of it falls on the northeastern or windward portion of the island.

Location - This site is located on the southeastern point of O'ahu. It can be accessed from the Kalaniana'ole Highway.
