On the southeast coast of Oahu the Makapu’u Point Lighthouse hike offers a nice 2 mile walk with beautiful vistas.
The lighthouse itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has the largest lens of any lighthouse in the United States.
From the photographer:
“This is one of my favorite, easy hikes on Oahu.”
