By the main road close to Princeville, this parking spot is relatively easy to miss. Yes, it’s certainly a postcard view but there are so many great views in Kauai it’s hard to compete. To cut a long story short: I wouldn’t drive from the...More

A very pretty lookout spot! There is a lot of traffic, so be mindful, take your photos and move on :)

I remember taking photos of this valley some 30 years ago. It is a beautiful valley,however the view is being hindered by the growth of trees/shrubs below the lookout. Not worth the stop as it is now.

This is one of the most beautiful roadside scenic views that you may ever experience. The majesty of the mountains encased with clouds, along with the waterfalls are spectacular!

A quick stop at this lookout is well worth it, It is easily accessed and there are adequate places to park your car off the roadway.

This place is a must-see, and there is usually space to pull over. Be courteous and move on after a few minutes. Your pictures will keep the memory alive.

On the way to Hanalei, take the time to stop at the lookout, read the informational signs, and enjoy the view. You will have to look hard to find a better view of the Hanalei River and beach.

A great spot to take photos. A different perspective besides the beach. Especially for couple selfies! Kauai is stunning.

This is one of the most spectacular vistas on the island. Your eye is drawn through and beyond the valley as the lush green hills and abundant vegetation engulf your view. Stop at the lookout and take in this most unforgettable view.

Pull off here for a great photo opp. The views on a sunny day are amazing! Not a place you'd hang out for long but worth a few minutes to take it all in.

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.
