La'ie Point State Wayside Park

Free admission
Naupaka Street, Kamehameha Highway, Laie, Oahu, Hawaii, 96762

The basics

A main attraction is the naturally formed arch known as Lizard Rock, which has a hole punched through it that was created by a tsunami. Partly thanks to the movie, La’ie Point is a popular cliff-jumping spot, but this is highly discouraged due to the risk of injury from the sharp rocks and powerful waves. Fishing is also a popular activity here but most visitors just come to admire views of the coastline and small offshore islands. Some circle-island tours around Oahu include a stop at La'ie Point State Wayside Park.

How to get there

La’ie Point State Wayside Park is made up of two separate strips of land on either side of a dead-end residential street behind the town of La’ie. Reach La’ie by turning off Kamehameha Highway around a mile (0.6 kilometers) north of the Polynesian Cultural Center onto Anemoku Street, which turns into Naupaka Street, which dead-ends at the park. Parking is very limited: be mindful of where you park and don’t block driveways.

The legend of Lizard Rock

While Lizard Rock is a spectacular sight in its own right, it also has an interesting legend attached. The story goes that a great Hawaiian warrior named Kana defeated a giant lizard here. He then divided the lizard into five pieces and scattered each piece into the ocean. Each of the offshore islands is a piece of the lizard. A plaque explains the story in more detail.
