Ka`ena Point | Hana Hou! Magazine

Gorgeous light on my sunset hike to Ka`ena Point on assignment about Natural Area Reserves in the islands for Hana Hou! The Hawaiian Airlines Magazine. Ka`ena Point is one of my favorite places on the island, as the Westernmost tip of Oahu it is rugged and remote, sand dunes line the wild coastline along the Waianae Mountain range and endangered native species thrive in it's unique ecosystem.

Looking back at the Waianaes you can see both the North and West shores of Oahu.

The new predator proof fence seals off Ka`ena Point and is the first of it's kind in the United States. Since it was installed in 2011 nesting has doubled for seabirds such as Laysan albatross and wedge-tailed shearwaters.
