Aloha Friday: Makapuu Lighthouse Trail!


Happy Aloha Friday everyone! Since the islands been flat lately (boo!) we’ve had to try different activities, such as my favorite: hiking. Along with gorgeous beaches, breezy weather an awesome waves, the island has plenty of beautiful trails for the wayward wanderer. From waterfalls to dense rainforest to spectacular views, pretty much any hike around here is a winner.

Since I had work today, we chose to go to the Makapuu Lighthouse Trail because its a mere stones throw from my job. It’s a pretty easy hike, since the path is paved (meh) but the view at the top is breathtaking.

The trail snakes up a steep cleef that sits agaisnt the water, with a crystal-clear view of the east side of the island, from around Allen Davis to Chinaman’s hat. One of my favorite things about living here is how beautiful and realtively untouched it truly is – the sky is so clear that we can see shadows from the clouds on the glittering water and green hills. Back home in Cali, we’re used to seeing the stereotypical smog line on the horizon.

Here’s our pics from today. The lighthouse is a beautiful trail – and we didn’t even have enough time to offroad it on the northern part of the cliff. So there’s more to this lovely little landmass, which I will hopefully be reattempting (and sharing!) soon.















Aloha and welcome! I'm a small business owner, athlete, and mom-to-be in Honolulu, Hawaii, seeking to live the kindest and most compassionate life I can. From plant-based recipes to low-waste beauty to business lessons to travel, this blog is all things real life.
