  • Pele’s Chair is a rock that harkens back to Hawaiian lore. The hike to the rock can be done while visiting Makapu’u Point, which gives you more bang for your free parking.  more »
  • It is a ten-minute walk from the mccapu trail parking lot. I think sneakers are good because it is a gravel road. From the sandy beach, you have to climb the narrow path with poor scaffolding to the "Pele chair", so be careful. Pele's chair is a rock, but it has its unique shape and a nice power. Unlike the Makapuu Trail, the ups and downs are not so tight, so please go close and get power.

  • Great Sunday afternoon walk! Anyone can do it even little kids. You could push a wheelchair if you're strong enough! Everyone is chill and it's a nice quiet time for all....great value....its free! Still a great time...see the lighthouse, see the view...see Lanai and Molokai...and Maui...
  • This hike is worth it. The dirt path to the right "leads" to Pele's chair. The path easily leads down hill to a beach. There is a split to the left that leads to a water run off path that leads up to the chair. We missed it and had to cut through a grass foot path. There are a few plants that will want to snag you on the way and thorns that can pierce a shoe sole. But the view is gorgeous, the wind is refreshing, and the chair is spectacular. However, you cannot see the front of the chair very well from here. My guess is it is better viewed from the rocks to the left of the beach or a far, such as a boat or the from the top if Kokohead.
