“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Worth the drive and short walk. Bring camera and spotting scope. High elevation, bring rain jacket or coat. It's cooler up there and rains a lot.

“prettiest spot on Kauai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Worth the windy drive up to look out from this spot! and to think we hiked all the way on the Kalalau trail and was able to look up to see where we looked out before, was amazing! would recommend.

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is the best and pretty view of the Na Pali without being on it or in a helicopter. Beyond the fence there is a trail with a very nice spot to get some better photos but one step back and you're gone, be careful! Very much worth the drive!

“Kalalau Lookout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is a little bit of a drive, but so worth while. Check the weather before you leave, because this could shroud the fantastic view.

“Awesome view...just wait for clouds to dissipate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

When we arrived, people were leaving saying that you couldn't see anything because of the fog. Well we stuck around and it was worth it. For one thing, it isn't fog, but you're so high it is clouds. We took a few pictures of us in the clouds and then saw them moving out to sea. Within minutes the view started to appear before our eyes. And what a view it was! I've never seen anything like it. You could see clear down to the turquoise blue sea. Wow. It was definitely worth the wait.
