The view of the valley is spectacular set with the backdrop of the magnificent Namolokama Mountain.The gorgeous shades of green vary due to sunlight and the time of day. The beautiful blue Hanalei River is in the middle of it all. This fabulous, fertile valley has been planted for centuries in taro by Native Hawaiians. The fields look like a green patchwork quilt. This view is used on many postcards. Unfortunately, since we have returned from Hawaii there has been a catastrophic flood in Hanalei Valley, and it may have not been enough time to repair it. Check with a Hawaiian travel agent. We definitely recommend seeing this view when it is ready to see again.

We stopped here several different times of various days traveling. Sunset was the best by far. Parking is tight but squeeze in. Highly recommended and bring your camera. Bill K Steamboat Springs CO.

I would not get in my car just to get there, but when you passing by it is worth a quick stop.

There is no parking but they put a wide shoulder on the road so you can stop without endangering yourself and it can easily fit 4-5 cars.

The view of the valley is very nice and it can make a nice picture.

Thank Marco

There are several lookouts along the road from Princeville to Hanalei providing expansive views of the mountains in the distance, the valley below, the small river to the ocean, and the 5th generation taro farm. The view is iconic, always impressive, and peaceful, anytime from dawn to dusk. The farm continues to recover from the floods and destruction of their crop, and will no doubt survive. Their popular taro and kalua pork food truck is up and running in the center of Hanalei. Stop and enjoy the view!

No muddy water was visible a week after the flood and all the beautiful greenery was evident. It is so sad to see the problems this community has suffered. There are hand painted signs in the area encouraging the community to pull together. It is evident that they are doing just that.
