“Heading north on Kauai on a sunny day? Stop here for a beautiful photo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

I can't count how many photos we've taken of the Hanalei Valley over the years, but we can't resist. It's just soo beautiful. The lookout area has a nice parking lot with lots of room and if it's not raining, boasts a view that will mesmerize you. Just beautiful. Even on a cloudy day, you'll think it's worth stopping.

“Awesome view and easy access for picture taking.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

This is a great spot for a quick picture of Hanalei valley. There isn't alot of room to park so you may not be able to pull right in depending on how many people are already there. Definitely worth the stop.

Like others have said, it isn't a place to make a special drive to but a great stop on your way around the island.

“Very beautiful lookout”

This was a beautiful sight. I wouldn't make a special trip just To stop here but, if you are passing by, it's worth stopping for photos.

“Worth stopping on a clear day; great vista”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

I recommend stopping for a quick photo or two. Unless you like to take millions of photos or "reflect" profoundly on a view, this scenic vista which is accessible from the road will take no more than 5 to 7 minutes tops. Pass if it is cloudy.
