The view from here is breathtaking. If you don’t want to fly or do the boat ride, this is the best you can do but an excellent view nonetheless. The majesty of the terrain with the coast as a backdrop is a view of a...More

We stopped here after hiking most of the day and saw only clouds. Came back a few days later to amazing view. The sun was not yet lighting up both sides of the mountains so a bit dark but still incredible. Go early in morning...More

Made it to the end of the road, but could not see the ocean. Bummer, hope to catch the amazing view next trip out. The last time we went, we could see everything, the mountains, the vast blue ocean, it was truly an amazing view....More

Perfect day with unlimited visibility! Absolutely stunning view into Na’pali coast. Been here several times and weather did not cooperate. Well worth the time with spectacular view. Only couples miles from Pu’Uokila lookout one of the wettest places on earth. Easy access to all.

We drove up from the canyon lookout and were so glad we did. We were treated to a magnificent view. The Na Pali coast line with every shade of greenery and the Pacific Ocean blues. We were here early and missed the clouds. Made for...More

When we arrived in the morning, it was pouring and completely cloud/fog covered. We’d done our research and knew we could wait it out and see if the clouds lifted. Sure enough, around 10 am, the clouds suddenly moved and it was all blue sky....More
