“Pictures pale in comparison to the reality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

As enjoyable as the trips to the islands are for my wife and me, frustration sets in because the pictures can never come close to matching the reality. You have got to drive Kauai!

“Do stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

While simple, this spot is one of our favorite spots to stop, get out of the car, take some pictures and just soak up the beautiful surroundings. We pull over several times on one trip and just find it to be so peaceful and serene. Take a few moments to take a peek, you'll be impressed.

“Nice view over the taro fields and the Hanalei River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Stop your car on the lookout-you'll find yourself in lots of company.This area is worth several pictures,and the green of the valley and the verdant mountain crags in the background will be a testimony to the statement "Kauai,the garden island"

“Glimps into Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is a beautiful overlook and a 'must do' picture location for any Kauai vacation. Bring your binoculars, we were shocked to find some buffalo of all things grazing in a field below!
