The first time I traveled here I was looking for the Olivine Pools. I randomly took the trail to the right and was blessed with beautiful views of the bay. If you want to stop by and swim in the Olivine Pools then follow the trails leftward.
BE CAREFUL - This coastline has steep cliffs which plunge into rough seas and big rocks. Winds can be strong and the soil loose. If you fall into the sea it will be your last swim. Use *extreme* caution when approaching the edge of cliffs.
So how do you actually get here?...
1. Approach from the north by driving around the north west peninsula. Take the Honoapiilani Hwy (30) until it turns into the Kahekili Hwy (340). This is a longer distance, but is quicker and easier.
2. Approach from the south (like I did) by driving north on Khekili Hwy (340). You will be blessed with some of the most beautiful seascapes and tropical views imaginable. However, this part of 340 is very narrow (1 lane) and has steep cliffs. The driver must go very slow and pay attention at all times. Because the road is so narrow and twisty it takes a much longer time especially because you'll be stopping for photos every 5 minutes! If you're not a nervous driver and have the time to spare, take this route for the best experience.
