I am an Alii Drive woman! At the end of Alii Drive is a historical area that I love to walk with my dog.
The best thing about living in the Keauhou area is the amazing area of the End of the World.
Famous for jumping off the cliff into the beautiful Pacific Ocean, watching the waves crash and an amazing place to take your dog for an adventure and a swim in the tide pools.
End of the World is located just pass Kailopapa Street, the one you take to go to Keauhou Sheridan and Wednesday Keauhou Farmers market.
As one passes Kailopapa St, first right is Keauhou Punahele condos that will allow DOGS. the next right lane that will take you to the End of the World. Park on either side of the street.
You will see a gravel road that is chained off for street traffic, but residents who live at the end have a key and often there will be a vehicle traveling on to the self-contained homes. No public electricity, no water lines and these are million dollar oceanfront estates.
Before the homes is the famous End of the World jumping off cliffs spot. One has to be ocean smart as there are no lifeguards and lives are lost! Too often!
On the gravel road instead of turning left, go straight or to the right, follow the rocky trail and you will be able to let your dog swim in the tide pools.
You will hear the sounds of the herd of wild goats, they will get your dog’s heart a-pounding. Be aware as if your dog is off leash he could be gone chasing goats. The dogs have been gone for hours and the stress of your lost dog is exhausting.
When the surf is up this is the spot to watch the huge waves crash on the rocks.
As my Grandmother always said, “Do not turn your back to the ocean,” especially here at the end of the world.
