Amazing views right off the main road on the way into Hanalei. There is just a little pull off - no signage. Just stop when you see cars!

You really must stop here! Beautiful views over serene fields and towering mountains with mainy waterfalls after the rains - you feel like you are seeing original Hawaii. Ample parking too.

Not a lot of parking (as with most Kauai overlooks) but just a picture perfect view of Hanalei Valley. Mountain backdrop with taro fields below.

Wonderful vantage point to get a real feel for the Hanalei Valley! But be careful. I didn’t fully trust others who were sightseeing to not watch where they were going....

We used the Shaka Guide for a drive of the north shore and it advised us to stop here. It’s a beautiful look into the valley and so green. Just be careful pulling into the pull off area to park. Between traffic in both directions...More

The overlook is simply a viewpoint or pullout at the side of the road. There are no trails or walkways involved. There are several places nearby in Princeville, in Hanalei or the lighthouse where you can walk with a pram.
