Kaena Point Directions-> Drive to Haliewa but rather than turning right into Haleiwa town, stay left and head towards Mokuleia -> Drive past Mokuleia -> Drive past YMCA -> Park at the parking lot next to the dirt road -> Walk down that dirt road -> Carefully go through the gates closing both doors behind you -> Duck because the albatrosses will be flying overhead. Albatrosses are endangered species and ground nesters. Please do not walk into nesting areas marked off with rope or tape. You could accidently smash an egg or a baby bird by stepping on it. Keep on the hiking path.
Kaena Point is an easy 4 mile walk round trip. Remember to bring water and sunscreen. This is a nature preserve where you can observe rare birds and monk seals. Please don’t pet the seals or birds because they bite when provoked. Enjoy the baby birds and baby seals!
