When I envision Hawaii, the views from the top of the Makapu’u Lighthouse Trail is what I see. The trail is surrounded by lush greenery and breath-taking views of Oahu’s windward coast. This hiking trail is well maintained and was recently repaved and renovated in October. With several places to stop and take beautiful photos, this is one trail I recommend if you are going to visit the island. Unfortunately, there is not any shade so sunscreen, sunglasses and hats are a must! If you’re a marine life fanatic like me, you might be interested in seeing the whales. There’s a chance of seeing the humpbacks between November and April! Parking is limited here, so come early! You could be lucky like we were today and get a spot right as you’re pulling up. Here are some snapshots of the hubby and I and all of the beautiful views. I hope you guys had a beautiful Sunday!
