Mariner's Ridge

A perfect place to relax, enjoy the vast scenery, and...have a Lomo photoshoot!

Mariner’s Ridge is one of the highest residential points on the south side of Oahu, Hawaii. Located in the town of Hawaii Kai, the area offers very upper-class amenities and shops for locals and visitors. Hawaii Kai is known for its luxurious homes and stunning beaches.

As you approach the area of Mariner’s Ridge community, there is a winding road that loops upward into the mountain side, and ends in a cul-de-sac that opens up to a hike trail.

Not only is there a hike, but on various points of the mountainside, there are wide open spaces with convenient steps and areas to sit and talk.

My love and I had explored the hike various times, and have always enjoyed just sitting and looking out over the views offered from the high altitude of Mariner’s Ridge.

You can see far off over the town of Hawaii Kai, out towards the ocean, and Koko Head crater. In fact, you can see the high school, the marina mall, and you may even spot some friends’ houses!

I was able to go back to Mariner’s Ridge with a few girls and have a little photo shoot!

We jumped all over the rocks and bushes to sit on the open patch of land on the hike trail. There are little trees which give enough shade to rest from the high sun.

The girls had their Lomography cameras, a La Sardina, Diana Mini, and even a Fisheye!
