“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!”
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.
