I awoke over two hours before sunrise to hopefully capture a nice sunrise at this location I had scoped out earlier along the northeastern shores of Oahu. Lanai Lookout as it is called, is a popular location with limited parking spots (maybe 15-20 ?) off the main road. The state has recently built a solid lava stone fence along the edge of the parking lot in hopes of keeping everyone from exploring down the face of the lookout toward the ocean’s edge. We arrived well before dawn in the pitch dark, long before the State Police got there trying to stop interested photographers from scaling down the lava rock descending down toward the ocean. Although the initial sunrise was nothing to write home about because of the cloud cover, waiting a few more minutes was worth all the effort! WOW!!

Notwithstanding the sign that warns people not to go out beyond the wall, we did, as well as a lot of others. During this time, the tide was not high, and we went up to the portion that acts like another safety wall. The view at this safety wall was fantastic, versus the view behind the parking lot wall. There were some who even went down closer to the sea and that was more foolish, IMO. Regarding the fear of break in as reported here by others' reviews, when we got to the parking lot, there was a police cruiser with an officer sitting on the driver side. This gave us a secured feeling that the fear of car burglars is common. This same officer did NOT stop anyone from crossing over the wall. This was my basis to also go past the wall. We were there for something like an hour and the police officer did not do anything from those who went past the wall. I believe he was there to prevent those car burglars from doing there thing, maybe. We left and the officer was still there the whole time.

Awesome spot to stop and take pics and enjoy the view. Quite a bit of parking, would recommend checking it out when you're driving along the East Coast.

Stopped there today and was amazed that there were at least 3 dozen Asian tourists (including several small children) that were hopping the short wall past the Danger sign and were standing near the edge of drop offs, down by the waterline, and other areas. There’s a reason why the signs are there.

Only worth the stop if you’re willing and able to hop over the short wall. If you do, you will be able to enjoy amazing views of the rock formations and the ocean. Fantastic photo opportunities! Gorgeous location.
