We visited here during spring break with our infant, 9 & 11-year-old children. The views are breathtaking, and the water is the prettiest shade of turquoise! March is considered off-peak season, so it was quite windy. Definitely a must-visit place when in Oahu!

Looking for fab views and fairly easy access then Makapu’u point is great. Heaps of parking and a tarsealed road (on an incline) or do what adventurers do and climb the Makapu’u from the lookout car park.

Perfect morning for a sunrise hike. A bit chilly at first but once the sun had risen, very pleasant. Paved road, but a steep grade. But if you take your time an easy hike
