Makapuu Beach Park is backed by sea cliffs and is popular among bodyboarders and bodysurfers. And, just around the corner is Makapuu Point, the easternmost point on Oahu which is the site of the Makapuu Lighthouse. Take the Makapuu Trail and hike to the top of this sea cliff to watch a beautiful Hawaiian sunrise or experience whale spotting from December through May. Makapuu Point is also known for the island's best bodysurfing (for the pros only).
