Makapuu  Lighthouse
And  Whale  Watching

Tour Description

Once used as an Army anti-invasion lookout during World War II, this location later served as a nautical navigational aid site and lighthouse by the United States Coast Guard. The automated lighthouse, which was once manned, is still in operation today. From Makapu'u Point, shoreline views from the terminus include Makapu'u Beach to Kailua and Sandy Beach to Koko Head Crater. This is one of the easiest tours on Oahu. It does have an incline and if you can walk okay, then you'll have no problem with this road.
