The End of the Road, Oahu, Hawaii

Posted by Jody on May 14, 2012

Have you ever wondered where you would end up if you traveled from Waikiki Beach, through Honolulu, along Oahu’s western shore, and just kept going?  We did!  Here’s the answer:  The End of the Road is where you’ll end up, even if you have rented a four-wheel drive Jeep!  Although you may see an errant 4WD head off the pavement here, no vehicles are allowed beyond Keawa’ula Beach, the farthest of two beaches in Ka’ena Point State Park. From this spot, it’s a 2.7 mile hike to Ka’ena Point, the westernmost tip of the island.

Although the actual ride along Oahu’s west coast is not the most visually appealing of  island experiences, remote Yokohama Bay, at the end of the road, is an absolutely beautiful and worthwhile destination!  Also known as Keawa’ula Beach, this typically uncrowded (and relatively untouched) spot, managed by Hawaii State Parks, is the northernmost beach on Oahu’s west coast and the last stop on Farrington Highway. Lifeguards are stationed at Keawa’ula Beach, and it’s a good thing because this area is known for its high surf and strong currents year round. With its wide, fine sand beach and surrounding picturesque green mountains it is absolutely worth the one hour Leeward Coast (Wai’anae coast) drive from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki Beach. You won’t find any upscale shopping or fancy restaurants out here!  Just gentle tropical breezes, and a quiet beauty! Ahhhhh.

Restrooms are provided here, but no drinking water is available.  You’ll want to be sure to pack your own water if you’re planning a family hike to Ka’ena Point. And a hat, and sun protection, and … well, you know the drill! 😉

Have a great day at the beach! Aloha!
