This little park offers a sweeping view of Honolulu - from beyond Diamond Head in the east to beyond Honolulu International Airport in the west. Stunning.

This was at the top of a nice drive we stumbled on the overlook area while looking for a spot to walk around. It had a nice picnic area and good views of the city.

We went here on a tour. The view of Honolulu & the surrounding area is beautiful. Should do this when you are in Honolulu.

This state park has lots to offer. There are three distinct parts, the lookout, the trail, and the picnic area. We went to the lookout. It really does offer beautiful views with informative signs about the area's history. Known for beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed the scenery before going to dinner. Did not go on the trail, seemed like dence forest.... More

A very nice, secluded spot to stop and take in the views of Honolulu. A great drive up and amazing views when you get there.

If you are in town, I would highly recommend this little journey to the Puu Ualakaa State Park. Once you are at the top, the views of Hawaii are astounding and breathtaking!! It's one of those views that you have to be there to really appreciate the beauty of the site!!

Took four generations of women to the park for the view and they were not disappointed. The expanse on a sunny day is breathtaking and photo opportunities abound. Also enjoyable was the trip up and down, what a roller coaster ride!!
