Excellent views good road fun drive. Winding along the coastal highway one can make many stops for photos. Take a picnic lunch with you to fully enjoy the drive and the views. Hawaii at its best

As others reviewers write, this is an awesome view and incredible wonder of nature. Probably more people know about 'pali' (Hawai'ian term for sea cliffs) from the movies shot on Kaua'i, such as Jurassic Park, and filmed from the air - often the best or only way.

The northern side of Molokai has the highest ocean cliffs in the world. Some as high as 4,000 feet. The views from the outlook are incredible.....breathtaking. Beautiful.

My wife and I rode out some abandoned roads off of 480 and got spectacular view to the east and the west. I would give you more detail, but nothing was marked.

We saw this coast from an air tour and from a ground tour. Awesome views. Coming from the Virginia Atlantic coast where the land meets the sea at sea level, this was amazingly different. Beautiful!

Since I suffer vertigo I did not go completely out to the edge......yikes. But the view I did get was spectacular. The windsong throught the pine trees was comforting.
