MAKAPUU POINT, OAHU
Situated at the easternmost tip of Oahu, Makapuu Point is a longtime favorite spot for whale-watching. For the best viewing, take the winding mile-long hike up Makapuu Point trail to Makapuu Head. The paved path has an elevation gain of about 500 feet. On the way up, you’ll enjoy views of the island’s southeastern shore. At the top: views of the windward coast and nearby offshore islets, which serve as wildlife sanctuaries for Hawaiian seabirds. Also, there’s Makapuu Lighthouse, built in 1909. On a clear day, you can see Molokai and Lanai, too.
