Well worth the stop for the outstanding views of Rabbit Island and Kāohikaipu Island State Seabird Sanctuary, Makapu'u beach. Can be windy though, but great views.

Beautiful spot for taking pictures of the coast line and the blue ocean. The parking is free but the lot is not very large.

This area is the most beautiful part of the island in my opinion. I stopped and took some pictures and walked the tidal pools. It was a really nice and scenic part of the island. Loved it.
