A drive past Hanauma bay and Sandy beach, the Makapu’u point State Wayside Park, is a roadside park with magnificent view of Ka-iwi State scenic shoreline and Mañana Island (rabbit Island).
Though there was a drizzle of rain from time to time, it didn’t stop us (and a lot of tourist too!) from getting out of the car .The sky was so blue and the view was spectacular, how can you stay in the car?
again, we’re here just to see the view and we didn’t even took the Makapu’u light house trail!
tsk! tsk! there’s a lot to see ..a lot of things to do ..no time to see it all and do 🙂
a distant view of the rabbit island. does it really look like a rabbit head?
We went down to have a closer look of the beach and have seen a lot of like.. lava rocks and tide pools where tiny fishes and crabs got stuck in between during low tides.
Ladies, here’s my picture once again with an open arms.. just one way of saying..
Life is beautiful to hold on to whats bringing you down.
We tried to wake up early to get the glimpsed of early sunrise but we failed obviously, as we headed to Kalaniana’ole highway (Hwy 72) the sun was already up.
We stop to a little corner before heading to Lanai look out, just to take a panoramic view of the city. We saw a middle-aged man, walking leisurely , I wonder where is the destination? The view was spectacular! Alright, we didn’t get to sunrise what about coming back here at sunset?
Oh yeah! good idea!
Omg! Oh my! what a nice view!., I think I uttered these words ten times if not more 🙂
Lanai look out is on the south-eastern shore, nestled behind Koko crater and not too far from Hanauma bay. There’s a small pull-out /parking area to view and take pictures.
The southward view is amazing and a piled of an interesting looking eroded rocks can be seen, actually we came back twice and still feels good to come back more 🙂
After taking a few shots, we went further more.. again Omg!
Finally we arrived at Sandy beach park, as I laid down my things, appreciating the beauty of the sea,the lifeguard approached us not to swim further as the current was so strong and dangerous. I watched with awe how one surfer calmly wait for the waves and enjoy his time. The impressive pounding shortwaves took my camera in bursts shots 🙂
When the sun started to go down, we hurriedly went back to the first corner stop so I can shot the sunset overlooking the panoramic view of the island.
Ladies, this trip definitely made my day, I can just sit and look at the scenery or just watched the shores , the scent..the sight.. and sound..it’s refreshing and invigorating!
