Lāʻie Point State Wayside – Day 3

After the beach I kept driving north along the Kamehameha Highway. The next stop was the busy and touristy Lāʻie Point State Wayside to see the famous Kukuihoolua Island (Puka Island).

The Hole at Lāʻie Point

This destination was very touristy. I did my best to arrive before lunch time to ensure that I could find suitable parking (although I probably still parked illegally in the neighbourhood) and avoid the herds of tourists (like me) who are looking to enjoy this little spot.

I was impressed by Puka Island with it’s wonderous hole giving a perfect glimpse out into the Pacific Ocean. It was a strange feeling knowing that I was looking north towards the vast expanse of the ocean. I managed to stay long enough to watch some local guys jump off the cliff into the water below. If I grew up on Oahu I’d probably be doing the same thing.

I watched the waves dance and crash into Kukuihoolua Island and just down to breathe in the warm humid ocean air. The views were spectacular. All of the other locals and tourist were happy and enjoying the unique experience of this place.
