“Worth Your Time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

A quick stop along Kuhio Highway, with parking available that treats you to an amazing view of Kauai's North Shore taro fields -- sounds like a no-brainer, right? In five minutes or less, you can snap a few photos and marvel in nature's countless shades of green. Obviously, if the area is socked with rain or fog, which does happen, you may have to wait for that perfect shot. Otherwise, definitely stop, have your photo taken, take a photo for someone else, and enjoy the view.

“Nice View Among Many”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

This little stop could be easy to drive by, especially if traveling toward Hanalei from Princeville (it is on the other side of the road - so drive slow enough not to pass right by it). This view is like so many in Kauai - stunning/beautiful/awesome - but it is just one of many - we stopped briefly but didn't get out of the car - continue driving toward Hanalei and beyond and you will see other road-side lookouts that are even more impressive.

“Fantastic Photo Op”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Hanalei Valley Lookout is one stop you don’t want to pass by, unless it’s raining and the valley & mountains obscured in clouds. If it does rain then I highly recommend you comeback when the sun is shining and check it out like we did. This lookout offers a fantastic photo op of the various colors found in the valleys, fields, and mountains of Kauai.

“Excellent photo spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Beautiful view of the valley and cost. Captures the essence of the North shore. There's also another great turn out a little further on going north. It's on a sharp curve just as you drop into the valley. Go slow or you'll miss it.
