A neat little turn out to catch a quick glimpse of the lush mountains & valley. Nothing jaw-dropping, but a nice view none the less

Just a quick drive from Princeville en route Hanalei. Pull over at the scenic overlook which is clearly marked for a spectacular view of the valley. Just down the road further another overlook site which you can see Hanalei Bay.

You just pull off the road right before the princeville shopping center. There is plenty of parking and even if it's raining the views are excellent. Free too!

I have been stopping at this overlook as often as practical during my stay to experience the varying sun, clouds and views of the mountains as well as the valley.

Stopped here several times and it is a breath-taking view of the mountains and fields. Easy to get in and out of. Perfect place for photos!

Right across from the shops in Princeville is this beautiful roadside lookout of the Hanalei Valley. Easily accessible, and beautiful. As the light and cloud cover changes, it can change the view of this valley - come back during different times of day!

This is an easy stop, right on the only highway on the north shore. Usually there is enough parking for a short view and there are others there who will gladly take your picture with the mountains and fields in the background. It is truly a fabulous view.

The beauty of the Hanalei Lookout cannot be captured by camera, although the picture above is quite breath taking. You would have to see it in person!
