Makapu’u Point Lighthouse Trail

Casual and unique, the Makapu’u Point Lighthouse Trail consists of 4km of paved trail leading up a ridge to the iconic lighthouse. Or you could choose to follow the trail off the paved road down to the tide pools. Because of the remote location of the hike, the coastal area is also a great place to view star-filled night skies and possibly catch a whale breaching from the waters during the winter season.

Cooking with Matt

Our new Student Services Coordinator, Matt is starting a new activity that brings his love of food, cultures, and teaching English all together in a workshop for GV Hawaii students to experience foods that are new to some and familiar to others. GV Hawaii students enjoyed the simple yet popular Japanese dish Takoyaki in February. Students will have the opportunity to make and try different variations of this delicious snack.
