Laie Point State Wayside Park Tours

Laie Point State Wayside Park, a rocky promontory on Oahu's North Shore hidden behind a residential neighborhood, got its 15 minutes of fame in the 2008 comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It’s here where Peter (Jason Segal) and Rachel (Mila Kunis) cement their relationship by braving the cliff jump off its side. Many daredevils still attempt the jump, but, as the abundance of floral memorials and crosses attest, it might not be the smartest choice—particularly when the waves pound during winter, making the already-challenging climb back up the cliff’s lava rock face all but impossible. Besides, there’s plenty to see from land.

Between November and March, humpback whales are often sighted in the waters off Laie Point and year-round local fishermen cast for dinner from the park's rugged edges. To the south, the greenery of the Windward Coast looms large with its backdrop of Koolau Range "foothills." Five small offshore Islands, one with a prominent puka (hole) through its center, and the wave-beaten texturized lava rock here make unusual and noteworthy subjects for photography enthusiasts. Read the plaque atop the boulder near the parking area to learn the Hawaiian creation story of the offshore Islands.

Practical Info

The park is free and open daily during daylight hours, but there are no lifeguards and facilities to speak of. To access the park, head to Laie turning off Kamehameha Highway about a mile north of the Polynesian Cultural Center onto Anemoku Street, which jogs and turns into Naupaka Street. Naupaka dead-ends at the park. Several bus tours include a stop at Laie Point Wayside Park with visits to the nearby Polynesian Cultural Center or the Laie Mormon Temple. Note that due to the North Shore town’s rich history with the Mormon faith, Laie is a dry town and many restaurants and stores are also closed on Sunday.
