My wife and I have driven this side road; which parallels the Pali Hwy. very many times in the past twenty years. The jungle here is so thick, it's canopy, actually forms a natural tunnel of branches, and leaves, over the paved road! It’s not the same as a peaceful nature walk, but if time is short and hiking isn’t... More

Part of our drive around Oahu. A great place to stop and gaze at the views. Can be windy and while there appeared to be a park person in a vehicle when you exited, no one was paying the self service parking fee and he was not stopping anyone for the fee.

Nuuanu Valley is my most favorite spot on planet earth . There's a magnetism here of pure energy. It's so lush and tropical and with its cool soft breezes that comes down the Ko'olau mountains to kiss your face makes this place just magical. From Fresh waterfalls to the abundant local nature this is a must to do , see,... More

We drove through the rain forest on our way to the north side. The rain forest itself was OK but not spectacular. However the view from the top was unbelievable. Panoramic view of most all of Honolulu, extending from Diamond Head on your left and almost to Ko Olina on the right. Very strong trade winds on the day we... More

I believe that this could possibly be a 5 but the weather didn't help itself. My 5s in terms of lookouts were 'koko head 1st and diamond head 2nd' An amazing view and if you do not have transport this view is included in the 'pearl harbor and circle island day tour' on trip advisor. Which i HIGHLY RECOMMEND. The... More

Awsome view from Oahu at the point up in the hills. Great place to admire nature. We saw cats and chicken living together, and they were so cute!!!!

Nice view of the valley in a lush setting. There are a few hikes from this area including one that is posted to keep off due to cliff erosion and falling rocks. People were doing it anyway. Good way to ruin your vacation falling off the edge. Slight charge for parking. Winding mountain road to lookout. Easy to find just... More

The Nuuanu Pali Lookout was cool. Parking costs a little. Great views, very very windy when I was up there. Camera strap kept flying off my head and you had to lean to counteract the heavy wind. The drive through rainforest wasn't too exciting for me. Not too much to look at but a nice change of scenery from the... More
