Along the Waimea Canyon drive, there is a lookout called Kalalau Lookout, and it's lovely. But for the best of the best, keep driving until you come to Pu'u o Kila Lookout. This. Is. The. Best. It's one of my favorite views in the world...More

Stopped here while touring around the park. Great views and places to park to enjoy the scenery. Worth spending a day in the area or longer if you want to hike.

This hike is so spacious, easy, and fun! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here and the view of Na Pali Coast was breathtaking! We saw lots of pregnant women and families with children here as well!

The view is slightly different than the previous lookout, plus it’s just fun to reach the “end of the road” right?! There’s no restroom here. Parking is tight, be prepared to wait a couple minutes for someone to pull out, or just go park a...More
