Definitely pull off the road here and take a look. The views are spectacular. It can be a bit crowded, but it's still worth it.

We happened upon the lookout driving the highway to Waimanalo and we are so glad we stopped! Breathtaking views and a great picture spot. The lot was crowded with visitors. Very scenic lookout point.
