Oahu’s Top Attractions – La'ie Point

When you visit a place like Oahu, you quickly discover that there are so many amazing sites, and visiting them all is nearly impossible. Sure, you can extend your vacation, or make a return visit, but if you are here for only a short period of time, you are going to want to see as much as you can, even if it means only spending a little bit of time somewhere.

Case in point: Oahu’s North Shore. We would all love to spend every waking moment in the country, exploring the nuances of the area and getting to know what makes this part of the island special. But the reality is, you likely only have a day on the North Shore, and with so many of Oahu’s top attractions found on this part of the island, you can easily hit quite a few of the island’s best destinations.

Along the North Shore, in the tiny town of La’ie, is an iconic lookout point that many visitors only see in pictures. Those who do get to see it are typically on a Circle Island Tour, or are making a pit stop during their trek to the Polynesian Cultural Center. The lookout point is famous for the offshore island that has been used in countless images of Oahu and for the scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall in which two of the characters daringly jump from the rocks into the ocean below. And while this is not recommended, it sure has made La’ie Point very well known.

A visit to La’ie Point doesn’t have to take very long. Witnessing the power of the ocean crashing against the rocks is incredible, and the views are breathtaking. You can even walk down to the part of the lookout point that leads into the ocean, and is a very popular surf spot with locals. The most impressive feature of this top Oahu attraction is the giant hole that is found in the offshore islet, created when a hurricane blew right threw the middle of the rock, creating a site that you just have to see.

If you are planning to head to the Polynesian Cultural Center for a fun-filled day, make sure to make a stop at La’ie Point. Not only is it very beautiful, it is quite impressive and a great place to really see how strong the ocean is. This is just one of Oahu’s top attractions, so be sure to include it on your list of things to see.
