Hike on one of the most famous trails on Oahu!
Does the idea of adventure for once in a lifetime views make your heart soar?
Do you want to see a unique side of Kailua that the locals love?
Come join us for a guided hike of the Lanikai Pillboxes!
This moderate level hike is about 1.8 miles round trip and with lunch and plenty of viewing time at the pillboxes takes approx. 2 hours; perfect for anyone (Minimum Age 5 years) that wants to have a pristine overview of the Mokulua Islands as well as Lanikai and Kailua Beach. Bring extra water though, this hike can be steep at times and there’s nothing better than a cold drink at the top of the ridge. If you are a photographer, grab you camera and be ready to get all the pictures you want. Along the trail, you may also see small lizards, birds, and maybe even a mongoose, so keep your eyes open. Closed toe shoes are necessary for this hike.
Your guide will explain the history of the area as you make your way up the side of the mountain, weaving around small trees and shrubs. Our guides have knowledge of the local plant and wildlife you will see in the area, so ask as many questions as you like. You’ll take some breaks and enjoy the gorgeous views that surround you as you make your way to the pillboxes, a series of military observation stations from the 1940’s after the Pearl Harbor attack when an invasion of Oahu was expected.
After your hike your guide will escort you to the World Famous Lanikai Beach! While there, you may catch a glimpse of one a Hawaii’s most well known animals, a Green Sea Turtle (Honu in Hawaiian), while it searches for food among the corals. Your guide, well-versed in Hawaiian history, marine life, and our island’s geological formations will tell stories and impart thought provoking information about Hawaii that most visitors love learning about.
ALSO ON OUR TOUR: Snorkeling !
Snorkeling at Lanikai Beach is truly going to be another highlight of your tour. The live coral reefs just off Lanikai Beach to the pristine white sand beach there is something here for everyone to see.
