Go early, because the parking will be full soon. This is a simple hike on a slightly inclined paved path. There are many scenic spots. Before we arrived, we saw the lighthouse covered with white scaffolding, a little disappointed. We were told that it was being repaired. However, this does not affect our mood, because the scenery is still very spectacular! Mountain bike enthusiasts can ride bicycles to experience potholes in the road. Hiking and bicycle lanes begin at the end of the entrance and parking lot.
A few hundred meters down the road, you can get to the parking lot. Then along the road, you can go to Panshan Road, which is a long way up the mountain. But the road is very wide and easy to walk. You need to climb down the mountain and turn over before you can see the lighthouse. The scenery was beautiful, but it was late when we arrived, so we could only walk to the top of the hill and go down, not to the lighthouse. Keep it for the next time.
Makapuu Point (Makapuu Point) is located at the easternmost end of Oahu Island, Hawaii. It is a popular hiking spot on the island. It climbs high in the distance. On the cliff stands a lighthouse, Makapuu Point Lighthouse, built in 1909 and renovated in 1974 to install one of the world's largest automated Fresnel lenses. Makapuu Point Lighthouse Trail, a 1.3-mile-long asphalt pavement with good and very gentle road conditions, can reach the top of Makapuu Point, so the difficulty factor is low and there are a lot of people pushing baby carriages up the hill. Along the way, besides the special geological features in the eastern part of Oahu Island, when the weather is fine and the visibility is high, you can also overlook Molokai and Lanai, which are the main islands of Hawaii. Of course, it is also an excellent whale-watching place from December to May next year. After climbing the summit, you will also have a good view of the extreme beauty of the Windward Coast. The road to the cliff side of the lighthouse is closed and inaccessible. On the top of the hill, there are many remnants of military relics such as blockhouses, which are also owned by the U.S. Coast Guard. There is a parking lot at the end of Makapuu Lighthouse Rd, but usually the parking spaces are full, especially on the hundreds of metres long roads of Makapuu Lighthouse Rd on weekends and holidays, and sometimes even on the adjacent Kalanianaole Hwy Road. If you park on the Hwy side of the road, you must pay attention to safety. Vehicles passing by are faster. U.S. President Barack Obama took his family hiking here on December 24, 2014.
It's worth going to the building. It's very beautiful. Oh, you can take pictures.
