Although only about a five mile drive to this park, allow plenty of time; as the road is both quite narrow in places, very windy; with many dangerous, blind, "S", and "U" like turns along the way! As you get nearer the park, or top, the road widens, and there are several locations to saftely pull over on the right... More

We just made a short stop for some photos from the view point. The park also has an area for picnics which we did not use.

When I went to the park, the park was nearly empty, so I was able to take my time and take several pictures. It is a beautifully kept park and overlook. It is a must visit for anyone visiting Honolulu. Bring a lunch and enjoy the atmosphere, wildlife, and view.

Great place to bring a picnic lunch. A little difficult to find at first and not advertised as a tourist destination.

The view is amazing, I've never been there when it's been crowded and the drive makes the trip fun. Once you enter the park, follow the signs to the left to park closest to the lookout platform. It affords you a commanding view all the way east and west of the coastline of south Oahu. Great spot to take some... More

This is a "Must stop" for any first time visitors to Hawaii. You need to come up here and get a lay of the land. Would be a great spot for a picnic or just a few photo's. The drive up may leave some queasy, but the view is worth it.

We wanted to get a panoramic view of Honolulu without climbing Diamond Head, so we chose Puu Ualakaa State Park. We drove to the park and walked out onto an observation point that is well constructed and a offers the views that we wanted. It's really a very nice little park that is well maintained. The drive up is windy,... More

Was in Honolulu three days after a tour of the other islands, and was happy to drive up the Puu Ualakaa State Park for a picnic with friends. And then a short walk to a vantage point to view Diamond Head and some residential homes in Honolulu. Was here 10 years ago, and glad that it still is worth going... More

I used to live in Honolulu and moved in 1997 so I was thrilled to find that the Puu Ualakaa State Park is as accessible as always. The views from this location are the best in town. There is none better from one location. Where else can you see from Diamond Head to the airport with unobstructed clear views? You... More

This viewpoint has great views, some wind and a whole lot of spirit into it. The way driving up is beautiful (we went up through round top drive and down through tanatlus drive- both ways can cause a little dizzy, but worth the travel). We had a clear sky and you could see the view all the way to Honolulu... More
