“Beautiful views of the peninsula and it's free.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

It's worth a stop. Beautiful views of the ocean, the peninsula and overlooking everything. There are supposed to be humpback whales, but I was told we came at the wrong time of the year, so that was just lucky.


Did I mention it was free? What could be wrong with that?

Some japanese families took a taxi there to look at the views.

“Good views, great seabirds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

My main reason to go to Hawaii was to watch the birds, and I had heard this place was good for the sea birds. It was no dissapointment. I had a red-footed booby fly within 15 feet from me, and I got to watch a few doen wedge-tailed shearwaters go back to their burrows. The views of Manana island are amazing too, great for any nature lovers.

Fantastic view, especially to watch the paragliders performing, they are like birds and over the lovely water and next to the cliffs amazing to see. Lighthouse just round the corner too, great to visit.

“Fantastic View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

My two favorite viewpoints on Oahu were the views from Diamond Head and the view from Makapu'u Point -- gorgeous! On a clear, sunny day, you won't find a better view. We stopped at the lookout south and uphill from the Makapu'u Beach Park. Be sure to take your camera.
