Stop and park to stretch your legs and admire the amazing view of Hanalei Valley and the Hanalei Coast/Bay. This is great photo opportunity before you arrive at the famed Hanalei Bay.

The overlook is simply a viewpoint or pullout at the side of the road. There are no trails or walkways involved. There are several places nearby in Princeville, in Hanalei or the lighthouse where you can walk with a pram.
