On our latest trip to Hawaii, we had a few days to stay in Haleiwa, which is a small town on the north shore of Oahu. We had a nice relaxing day, with no plans and so this travel vlog is about how our day unfolded. As we were driving to on our way to find the Paalaa Kai bakery, by chance it happened to be Saturday, and on Saturday there is the Waialua farmer’s market. So we pulled in and stopped to see what they had. It was very small, not much available, but there was some good vegetables and fruits available and what I noticed was a man selling poke. So I bought a box of poke for $10 and as I ordered it, he mixed it all up with all the seasoning right then and there. It was delicious.
We then continued onto Paalaa Kai bakery where I purchased a ham and cheese bread roll, something I had wanted to eat for a long time – since my previous trip to Hawaii. It was delicious along with a couple of cups of coffee. After breakfast we took a swim, and then it was already time for lunch, and after doing some research, we went to a restaurant called Dat Cajun Guy (there will be a full video of this meal coming soon).
Feeling pretty full, and having no plans for the afternoon, we decided to take the drive over to Kaena Point (also spelled Ka’ena Point), where there’s a hike you can take that will take you to the very western point of the island of Oahu in Hawaii. It’s not really actually much of a hike at all, but more of a steady walk along the old road – that used to be open – but is now closed to vehicles (there are some cars that can get in with permit), but it’s best to just walk. The Kaena Point hike offers some incredible views of the ocean, and I really enjoyed the views once we were at the point. Kaena Point is a Hawaii state park, and the land is protected and preserved for its natural habitat of wildlife including seabirds and Hawaiian monk seals. When we were at Kaena Point we saw both seabirds and Hawaiian monk seals, which were both wonderful to see – an addition to the amazing scenery of the hike already.
Kaena Point Hike (Mokuleia side)
How long does it take: I believe the hike is about 5 miles roundtrip. It took us about 1 hour in each direction, maybe a little less, and we spent about 45 minutes at Kaena Point. So all in all it took us about 3 hours.
Price: It’s free, no entrance fee
Kaena point hike directions (remember this is coming from the Mokuleia side, which is from the north short): For driving directions, keep on driving west on Farrington highway until the road comes to an end at the parking lot. Then once you park the car, just follow the road all the way to the end, and you’ll reach the point.
Tips: It’s a hot and dry hike, so bring a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water.
