If you’re like me, you don’t always want a crazy adventurous near-death type of hike on a leisurely Sunday morning. When Dane and I stumbled upon Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument, we knew we had found a winner. Nestled high above O’ahu’s Waimea Bay sits this historic site, complete with breathtaking views and space to roam.
There are ruins that are pretty much right in front of you when you pull up, which is nice, because you’ll know you’re there when you see them!
Tucked behind some bushes are a few dirt paths you can traverse to get view of Waimea Bay and Kam Highway. I wish it had been sunnier so the water looked more turquoise, but the sites are stunning nonetheless.
We stuck around for a little bit and poked around to see if there were any more in-depth trails, but we didn’t see any. Now, that doesn’t mean they don’t exist, but we weren’t going to get crazy since we had Judy with us.
And of course no adventure is complete without a jumping photo 😉
