Not quite on the East side, but not yet in North Shore, Lai’e point is a unique destination that visitors often miss.
You might not expect to find anything special as you drive through the small neighborhood leading to Lai’e point, but I assure you– at the end of that road is a beautiful scene you won’t soon forget.
The cliffs jut out towards the ocean, and you might find some locals fishing or cliff jumping on a calm day. On a day with bigger waves, you can watch the white wash crashing against the sheer wall.
To the left of the cliff, you can see the sea arch. Hawaiian legend has it that the sea arch is the remains of a gigantic lizard! This lizard was cut into 3 pieces by the legendary warrior kana and his magic spear.
While you are on the point, remember to turn around and take in the view of the coastline and the Ko’olau mountains in your backdrop. It is truly breathtaking.
