Laie Point North East Shore Hawaii

Laie Point is located on the North East shore of Oahu. The rugged point, full of beauty and history, juts far out into the ocean, providing panoramic views of this eastern section of Oahu shoreline and the surrounding small islands.

In addition to adding to the beauty of this location, the small off shore islands are part of the Hawaiian legend of Laie Point. According to the legend, a mo’o(giant lizard) used to patrol this point, known as Laniloa, attacking unfortunate passerbys. A Hawaiian warrior named Kana set out to avenge his mother and kill all the mo’o in the Hawaiian Islands. When he arrived at Laniloa, Kana easily killed the mo’o, slicing the lizard into five pieces and throwing it into the ocean.

These five pieces can still be seen today as the five small islands surrounding Laie Point, called Kihewamoku, Moku’auia, Pulemoku, Kukuiho’olua, and Mokualai. The most famous of these islands, Kukuiho’olua, which can be seen off to the left of Laie Point, has a large puka, or hole, in it. This hole is the result of a 1946 tsunami which punched out pieces of the island, creating a rock bridge and a natural phenomenon for all who visit..

You can’t see this place from the road. It’s tucked away behind a neighborhood in Laie, a small town on Oahu’s north shore. At some point this must have been a secret spot among Laie locals.This small strip of land you see here is a state park called Laie State Wayside Park. Most people just call it Laie Point.
