What To Expect From A Makua Cave Sunset Tour

If you are planning a trip to Makua National Park, it’s a good idea to make the Makua Cave sunset tour a part of your visit. The cool thing about Makua is that it doesn’t matter where you end up staying. You can stay right in the park and do most of the things you want to do there. But if you want to get out of the park, you have to take some trips outside. Here are some tips for doing just that.

Makua Cave: Amazing Adventurous Place

To start, let’s talk about the Makua Cave. This is an amazing cave, one of the best that I’ve ever seen. It is circular and it has four connecting passages that are about a mile long. The interior of the cave is completely dark and the light inside comes from eight sun-related windows.

There is no entry fee and you don’t have to pay any entrance fees for the tour of the interior. When you go on the tour, they will start with you walking through the center of the maze, which is called Tambomachay. From there, you will move into the western part of the cave, called Momahue

Places To Visit On The Tour

The tour also goes through the eastern section of the cave, which is called Aau Clave. This is another dark cave with a very interesting light at night. The tour guide will lead you through this section of the cave.

After this, the tour guides will take you back to the center of the maze, where they will show you a very interesting part of Makua’s sunset scenery. I must say, though, that the sunset here is not as spectacular as it is in other caves. But it’s still an awesome experience.

You can either do this tour on your own or with a guided tour. It depends on which you prefer. In case you are planning to go for this tour on your own, you should be aware that you need a lot of equipment. Specifically, you will need a helicopter, the trip from the airport and a guide who knows the place. I recommend you do this tour with a guided tour.

If you don’t want to pay for anything then I suggest you do this tour with a tour operator. They will fly you and your escorts to the extraction point at the foot of the mountain. Once there, you will be taken to your hotel. You will need all the money in cash, so you won’t have to worry about carrying anything on your person. You won’t even need a driver to drive you around.

Things To Do In Your Hotel Room

Once you are in your room, there are plenty of things you can do. You can swim in the pool of the hotel if you like and you can have some romantic dinner with your loved one. In fact, if you booked a tour with a guide, you can ask him to take you to some secluded spot for a romantic dinner. You will probably need a vehicle because there is a lot of traffic in the area. However, it’s well worth it since you will have a beautiful time with your partner.


A trip like this will certainly take you to the limits of the Limahuli Garden and its surrounding areas. It will open your eyes to the cultural diversity of Hawaii and its uniqueness. Your tour will end at the Makua Cave. You might want to spend some time in the early morning observing the sunrise. After that, it’s back to the big city and another day of relaxation and fun in the sun.
