All of the Hawaiian islands have an abundance of hikes, some with beautiful ocean views and others with waterfalls or panoramic views. There's one hike on O'ahu that I have done dozens of times. I am talking about the Makapu Lighthouse hike. The hike is located off of Kalanianaole Highway, between Waimanalo and Hawaii Kai. It is just pass the entrance to Sea Life Park. There's lots of parking, but on the weekend you may actually find yourself having to park down the street and hike to the hike. This hike is up a mountain and only about a mile to a mile and a half. It is along a paved road, making it ideal for strollers and easier on the legs. As you hike to the top of the mountain, you enjoy beautiful ocean views, as well as a view of Koko Head. Once you reach the top, you see a lighthouse, Rabbit Island, and the Waimanalo Coast. If you are lucky, during the winter, you might actually see whales. This year, I have not seen any, but last year, I saw several, including baby whales. I did this hike on my first vacation to O'ahu in 2000 with my sister and brother-in-law. I instantly loved it and still do. In the past two years, I pushed my stroller up with Matthew in it. Now, he's grown to the point where he actually walks some of it. He can definitely walk all the way down. It is a great family hike. It is harder going uphill with a stroller, but it's a perfect way to spend a couple of hours, getting some exercise with a view that never gets old!
