“Best kept secret in Hawaii”

Puu Ualakaa State Park
Ranked #37 of 333 things to do in Honolulu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 15, 2013

If you have a car, this is a must stop. We came here during sunset and it was amazing. You get a complete panorama view of Honolulu and the surrounding area, including Diamond Head. There is a nice grass area to lay down and read a book if you have the time. The only warning I would give is that when we went, a car got broken into! Be mindful of your surroundings and obviously make sure you keep all valuables out of the car. Otherwise, I think this place trumps all other places (including beaches) for the best place to view a sunset.

Great views. Worth driving out of the way. Nice trails. Lots of free parking. Picnic tables. Lots of people seem to walk their dogs there.

If you got a car and are driving around the Honolulu area anyway, this is worth the stop. Free to get in and park, great view of city, punch bowl, Diamond Head, and you can even see Pearl Harbor in the distance. Fun drive up the winding roads.

Everyone should go there...Rent a car and pack goodies and wine. Best view you can see....Park close 745pm but enough time to see sunset!

The best view of Honolulu, Waikiki and Diamond Head! Worth the drive and don't forget your camera. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy it el fresco in one of the pavilions. For those of you who love hiking, there are a few trails. For us, we just went to enjoy the ride on our motorcycles and the view.
