East Oahu at Dusk

#1

Above
View from Lanai Lookout.

You know that drive up Kalanianaole Hwy from town to Makapu’u? I do that pretty often but I’ve never stopped at all those lookout points. I recently decided to drop by each one to check them out. There’s some some really great views out there.

#2

This is the first lookout point. It’s off the hill up to Hanauma Bay. This lookout is perfect for watching the sun set over Hawaii Kai.

#3

The is in the small cove off of Lanai Lookout. It’s the first lookout point on the right after you pass Hanauma Bay.

#4

You step outside of the railed off area and walk to the right. You can climb down these layers of rock to get to the small cove.

#5

There’s no beach down here but it’s pretty cool.

#6

At the bottom now.

#7

Walking back out of the cove you can see a nice view of Koko Head.

I didn’t take any shots at Halona Point since it was getting too dark.

#8

But at Makapu’u Beach, the view was unreal. Full moon over the lighthouse.

#9

Looking up the coast you see the bridge and tent where fishermen were hanging out.

Still on the to-do list is to come out this way for the sunrise.
