Gorgeous place. Secluded little beaches. Wherever rocky, rocks can be very sharp. Wonderful views. If you're lucky you can spot whales out in the ocean. You can hike Ka'ena Point from the south as well as from the north.

Great escape from the Waikiki hustle. Take plenty of water. The app states rated for kids...we took our three kids, 8,5,3. Our oldest was fine, but ended up carrying the the younger ones on shoulders for the majority of the way back.

Numerous internet sources will tell you that the “Ka’ena” in Ka’ena Point means “really hot,” though not a single Hawaiian to English dictionary I’ve found will corroborate that story. That doesn’t, however, disprove the fact that Ka’ena Point is, in fact, hot; really hot.

With its surf and sand, sun, wildlife, whales, tidepools, history and folklore, Ka’ena Point is, in my opinion, the distilled essence of Oahu’s west side. It is the antithesis to Waikiki and should absolutely be experienced by anyone visiting the island who likes getting away from the city. It’s definitely worth the drive.

Great family hike, trail on the south is better than the north. Like all the natural arches formed by the oceans in the rocks.
