A Lighthouse of Hawaii

HI 2K Ka'ena Point
latitude 21° 34' 27.6" N
longitude 158° 16' 45.7" W

Ka'ena Point is the westernmost tip of O'ahu and is a celebrated legendary site for the Hawaiian people. The Ka'ena Point Natural Reserve Area was created in 1983 to help protect the fragile dunes and native species on the point. Making the area immediately around the point off-limits to dogs and vehicles has helped restore the natural landscape and elevate the number of nesting Laysan albatross and wedge-tailed shearwaters.

From H1 in Honolulu, travel west and then follow H2 north until it ends. Continue on Highway 99 for two miles, and then continue north on 803 towards Waialua. When the road splits into Highway 930, take the western branch, the Farrington Highway, and follow it past Dillingham Airfield to its end. You will then need to hike in about 2.5 miles.
