The start of the path to Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse Trail begins at the end of the free parking lot and transverses for about 1 mile to the peak. Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse Trail is great for parents with babies and toddlers because the entire trail is paved. We brought our Trendsport Lite Stroller and it was perfect for this trail.
Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse Trail is also easy to find. Just take H1 east from Waikiki until it turns into Highway 72. Once you pass Hawaii Kai, Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach Park you will see the parking lot signs for Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse Trail.
You and the family can decide between going up to the peak with the smooth trail, or choosing one of the natural paths to the the tidal pools seen in the photo above.
The stroller is not an option on the natural paths, but it looked like a short distance should you choose to carry your little one unless they are big enough to hoof it themselves. If you have the time, why not try both? I definately recommend the Chicco Smart Support Backpack, Red Its a backsaver and even supplies some shade for your baby.
Your children will have fun climbing on all the rocks surrounding breathtaking views. Parents make sure your cameras are charged and ready to shoot for some once in a lifetime pictures.
The view at the peak of Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse Trail will make your family feel blessed.
