Makapuu Lighthouse Hike

The sunsets from the Makapuu Lighthouse Hike are so cool. My favorite thing about the Makapuu Lighthouse Hike is how dog-friendly it is. There are trash cans stationed throughout the hike for the convenience of throwing poop bags away. Dogs are legally allowed on this hike (with proper leashing,) and it’s not too

Koko Head Hike

This is Koko Head hike is really difficult. I like to describe it as “you’ll need strength going up and strategy going down,” and here’s why:   Your ascent is pretty similar to doing 50 minutes of level 60 on the stairmaster at the gym. By the time you’re at the top, you’re drenched in

Koko Head Arch Hike

A really easy hike, to say the least. This is the kind of hike that your small 9-pound poodle could easily do. Parking Aside from how easy this hike is, it’s conveniently equipped with ample parking and nearby beaches. I would recommend parking at the Halona Blowhole Lookout. Bring a full water bottle, comfortable running

Amazing Experience: Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay, Oahu, Hawaii!

Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay, Oahu, Hawaii is one of my favorite life activities. The water is warm, clean, shallow and in many areas - safe.
