Take the short ride up Tantalus and be awed by the expansive views of Honolulu and Waikiki. The views let you see everything from Diamond Head (and even further east) to the airport area.

Love that this is one of the free activities you can do on Oahu. The lookout offers expansive views of downtown Honolulu, Waikiki, and Diamond Head. The drive up to the lookout is beautiful too.

My mom and I drove a rental car to the lookout. She's afraid of heights and was not too pleased with the steep, winding roads, and I was slightly uneasy. The view at the top was nice, but we stayed for maybe five minutes and...More
