East Oahu at Dusk


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.


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.


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


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.


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


At the bottom now.


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.


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


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.
