Hiking at Kaena Point Trail

Cloudy days, wind and light rain... Oahu is not what I was expecting. The sunny days of Hawaiian postcards are not here yet, not at least at the beginning of March. 
Waves are not good either, so we opted to take the Kaena hike. 


Located in the Kaena Point State Park on the very western part of Waialua, the hike starts on a dirt road next to the ocean. Watch out for the mudholes!


The hike continues along cliffs beside the ocean. You can follow the road to reach the point, or take alternative routes like Wiki.
I call him the explorer :)

The trail is mostly flat, with amazing ocean views. After 2.5 hours, we arrived in Keawaula Beach, where we rest and ate something for half an hour before we turned back.

We walked a total of 10 miles (16 km), plenty of exercise for today!

Waialua, Oahu

Oahu is one of the 14th Hawaiian Island, and the third larger. Is where Honolulu, the state capital is. We are staying at an Airbnb in the hippie/rural area of Waialua, a quiet place on the north west of the island.
