“Hidden jem! worth the hour. best views of Honolulu.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

A few miles off the H1..around exit 24. Twisty road up to the park. Plenty of parking, and the sights from the top are amazing. Better views of Honolulu than from Diamondhead. Just check it out..round trip is easily under an hour..better yet, pack a lunch and have a picnic at a shady table and enjoy the views.

“Fabulous view”

Had a great time driving around the many turns of the road. The view of the city is fantastic. The road going to this place is fantastic with its great big trees

“Great Drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We drove only around Tantalus road (didn't get to the park) but how cool to do all of those twists and turns! We are from the flat midwest so we enjoyed the interesting and fun drive!

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is a crazy curvy road, but it goes up and gives some of the best views of Waikiki. Make sure to follow it up to Puu Ualaka State Park and you will get the pics of Waikiki you see on post cards. It's perfect to do when you have a free hour.

“Fun drive up Tantalus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

The drive up Tantalus to Put Ualaka State Park is amazing, there is always a mist that rests on the hills near the top, that leaves a rainbow visible almost daily. Stop on the way up to see some very nice views. Once you reach the top the view will give you a panoramic scene from diamond head to your left all the way to pearl harbor in the distance to your right. Stop for the view, and then enjoy the trip back down with more amazing sights and sounds!!
