Barbers Point was named after the captain of a ship that ran aground on a coral reef just off shore in 1769. Several structures have been constructed on the site to project the light. The current tower was built in 1933 and is 72 feet (22 meters) tall.
This structure is fairly simple but the surroundings make it quite spectacular. It is located in Barbers Point Beach Park which also is the location of the well known Germaine’s Luau. The beach is sand but terminates on at the rocky shoreline. Many palm trees also can be found on the beach. Behind the lighthouse are the less flattering structures of James Campbell Industrial Park.
The lighthouse is best viewed either on a nice sunny day or in the evening during sunset. At night it is common for Luau’s to be underway but if you park in the lot that it further away the employees of the Luau are surprisingly accommodating.
This is one of my top 3 favorite clubs on Oahu. It's downtown Honolulu. Behind the bar you can see live monkeys playing in a glass case! The music is loud, the drinks are cheap and the boys are cute! What's not to like!?!
Dress Code: No dress code but most girls wear jeans or slacks with a dressy shirt. The guys wear slacks and collared shirts or jeans and t-shirts. Nice and casual!
