Pali Lookout
4.88
Nuuanu Pali, located northeast of downtown Honolulu, is situated high on the windy cliffs of the Ko'olau Mountain range and offers stunning views of the windward coastline's blue waters. This sweeping, uninterrupted vantage point attracts travelers looking for a bird's-eye perspective on Kaneohe Bay and Chinaman's Hat (Mokolii). Pali Lookout is historically significant, as well, marking the location of a decisive military victory for King Kamehameha I that united the island under his control.
Pro Tips:
  • - Hold onto loose clothing. The wind at the Pali Lookout needs to be experienced to be believed. Although it's part of the charm, sudden gusts and careless grip have sent many hats and small items on incredible journeys they never return from.
  • - Appreciate the clouds. One of the most remarkable features of the Pali Lookout is the way shadows of passing clouds play out a grand drama on the valley floor below.
  • - Enjoy the Pali Highway too! Route 61 is how you'll get to the Pali Lookout, and the road itself has some pretty great views to offer on its own. Don't be so focused on the destination that you forget to enjoy the journey!
