“Fabulous view”

Had a great time driving around the many turns of the road. The view of the city is fantastic. The road going to this place is fantastic with its great big trees

“Great Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We drove only around Tantalus road (didn't get to the park) but how cool to do all of those twists and turns! We are from the flat midwest so we enjoyed the interesting and fun drive!

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is a crazy curvy road, but it goes up and gives some of the best views of Waikiki. Make sure to follow it up to Puu Ualaka State Park and you will get the pics of Waikiki you see on post cards. It's perfect to do when you have a free hour.

“Fun drive up Tantalus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

The drive up Tantalus to Put Ualaka State Park is amazing, there is always a mist that rests on the hills near the top, that leaves a rainbow visible almost daily. Stop on the way up to see some very nice views. Once you reach the top the view will give you a panoramic scene from diamond head to your left all the way to pearl harbor in the distance to your right. Stop for the view, and then enjoy the trip back down with more amazing sights and sounds!!

“Should I really be revealing thiw little known secret gem?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Puu Ualaka will be a memorable diversion, even if you cannot remember the name. Most visitors are unaware of it &/or have a hard time finding it. It is a peaceful, green park, high above the city. The vistas are spectacular. You can see from Diamond Head to the Waianae mountain range. Take your camera & picnic basket. It's silent solitude is breathtaking as you gaze down upon wiki wiki, wacky Waikiki. The easiest way to get there is by car. Begin at the Punchbowl National Cemetery, which is inspiring in & of itself. Continue on that road for a few miles of lovely rainforest until you see the sign for Puu Ualaka. When you exit the park, I recomment turning right to go back down the hill. Makiki St. will lead you back.
