Kaena Point State Park

Also known as "The Heat", Kaena Point State Park is the last beach on Farrington Road which ends at Kaena Point, the most northwestern point of O'ahu.  This West Coast beach has a beautiful vantage point of the coast of Oahu. Kaena Point in Oahu has dangerous rips currents and very large swells in the winter months. Obey all posting and warnings.

Kaena or Ka ena Point is the westernmost tip of land on the island of Oahu. The point can be reached by doing some good old fashioned Oahu Hiking. Hiking in from the north side is recommended when hiking Kaena Point in Hawaii. An unimproved track extends about 3 miles along the Kaena coast from the end of the road on the north side. On the south side of Kaena Point in Hawaii, a paved road passes a beach before becoming an unpaved road. It continues for several miles, after which the road is washed out, and further travel must be done by Oahu Hiking. You can not travel around the point in a vehicle. The path is completely washed out in one place on the South side of the Ka ena point and a rope helps hikers traverse the gap of Kaena Point in Oahu.

In the Hawaiian language, ka ena means “The Heat”. The area was named after a brother or cousin of Pele who accompanied her from Kahiki. Ka ena Point is a spear-shaped rock into the Pacific Ocean. Some ancient folklore states that Ka ena Point is the "jumping-off" point for souls leaving the world.

During the winter months in Oahu, Oahu's North Shore has some huge waves. It is rumored that Kaena Point typically has waves of over 50 feet in height which are much larger than those at Waimea Bay locations. It has been reported seeing waves with 60–80-footfaces at Kaena Point in Oahu. Kaena Point is located in a very remote area with no direct paved road access. There are dangerous rips Kaena Point.
