Don’t Miss Laie Point on Oahu


When you’re sight-seeing on the North Shore of Oahu, don’t miss seeing Laie Point. Here you will find several small sandstone islands just off shore. The main attraction is this natural sea arch shown in the photo above. The hole was punched out during a tsunami in 1946. Here’s another view of it.

Laie Point

Laie Point is located just a couple turns off the Kamehameha Highway (Hwy 83) in Laie. Use this Google map link or our interactive Oahu vacation map to find directions. There is a small free parking area. If you want to walk around, be careful as the rocky surface is very uneven.

  1. Hi Chris – thanks for the interesting legend about Laie Point. Chnaman’s Hat – Mokoli’i – also has a legend about a lizard. Kea shared it here:

  2. Hi Sheila,
    When people off island came to visit, my Dad would take them on a circle island tour with our whole family. Laie Point was always one of the highlights of the tour. As for myself, it felt good to get out of a crowded car.

  3. HVG – Laie Point is a good place to breath in some fresh sea air – crowded car or not. 🙂
