The Hike

The Ehukai Pillbox Hike, also known as the Sunset Pillboxes, is an easy hike up to an old pillbox located on the North Shore of Oahu. At the top you’ll find beautiful views over Banzai Pipeline and the North Shore. As you’ve probably guessed by its name, it’s a great place to watch a colorful Hawaiian sunset. Overall, it’s a pretty well graded trail but if your hiking after a recent rainfall it will be a little slippery and muddy, so be careful. You’ll encounter 2 old military pillboxes on this trail. You’ll get the best views from the second pillbox.

The Parking

Parking is available at Ehukai Beach Park.
