It is a long drive up the mountain to this remote vista but so worth the time and effort for the magnificent views of what must be the very edge of the world. Words fall short of the sheer grandeur over Kalalau.

A must see well worth the drive up the hill. Expect rain here and there. I would go all the way to the top and get a treat at the lodge

Kalalau Lookout provides a tops down view of the entire Kalalau Valley. Nothing short of spectacular. There are many hiking trails available as well that will take you into the tropical jungle. Well worth the drive.

Drive a little bit further past Waimea Canyon and you will be presently surprised at the view with this lookout. Beautiful view of the Na Poli coast that gives a view of almost suspended clouds over the Pacific.

If you go, try to check beforehand for rain/fog conditions. When we went it was fully covered in fog so we couldn't see anything from the lookout.
