Ka'ena Point South Professional Review and Guide
"Don’t miss this one. It is an easy walk on a stunning shoreline, with possible sightings of nesting albatross, rare monk seals, and humpback whales. There are endangered species of native Hawaiian flowers, tide pools, and blowholes. Your hike begins at the foot of the cliff upon which squats a white object that looks like Paul Bunyan’s golf ball—it’s actually one of the domes of the nearby military satellite tracking station. There is no sign or official trailhead here, just the end of the pavement. The hillside mauka (toward the mountain) is mostly covered with koa haole and other dry scrubby plants. Makai (toward the sea) is one of the most wild and wonderful shorelines ever."
