there are few places that are as easy to get to on Oahu with a view than Tantalus lookout. It's also a great place to have a quick quiet picnic with the misses. Also breathtaking at night, just very crowded.

Great place to shoot the sunset. As always the clouds need to be working with you. Once you have given up on taking any more sunset shots you can drive a short way down and pull over for some long exposure shots of downtown. Drive down slowly and look on the left for a small area to pull over.

I lived in Hawaii. It's good for day or night . Night is special. Be secure aware. There can be trouble makers up there from time to time.

Bring a blanket to sit out on the grass. Have a picnic if you have enough time and bring the pups if you wish! Stay until the sunset. You'll get a great view of over Waikiki area. This only get a 4 because the hikes on the island are the ones that give you THE BEST views. But for one... More

This is a great place to look out over the island. It was very breath taking place. This was definitely a place that I loved visiting while in Honolulu.

Got this drive from a guidebook and SO glad we did this!! I was probably my favorite thing we did in Hawaii! We did the Tantalus/Round Top Road drive. It's a twisty-turny drive up a mountain that will give you spectacular views of Diamondhead and Wakiki Beach. The road is very small and very secluded, except for the occasion long-boarder... More

We did this on our first day. It was a nice way to see Honolulu. The view was good, but as the week went on it was definitely not the best.

This is a nice stop while taking the Tantalus Drive tour. It is a beautiful overview of Honolulu, and a stop not to be missed while visiting Oahu.

On your way up the mountain stop at this park for a great view.BUT don't go alone if you can help it. It is isolated and unfortunately we have criminals who have no Aloha spirit and will take your belongs - from you and maybe from your car! So if you are a hiker type with no expensive jewelry or...

Every time we go to Hawaii we use the "Ultimate - insert island here - Guidebook" It said the Tantalus drive was a "must do". While it was a very nice drive, it was not spectacular. The Road to Hana drive in Maui is spectacular... Anyway, we stopped here, and it was worth it. Great view of the city. I... More
