Go to the end of the road in Waimea Canyon and look out -- assuming the weather is good (a good bet), you will see a magnificent view of the canyon and the Napali coast without a helicopter.

Go early in the morning near sunrise and enjoy the most wonderful views of the Na'pali coast and clouds swirling in the mountains! Very close to Waimea canyon.

Spend a day up Waimea Canyon and you will get treated at this spectacular view from the lookout. I have never seen anything so beautiful.

Great views down to the Na Pali coast. Plan time to hike the rim trail if the weather is good. Good for pictures and sightseeing

The views from the lookouts are spectacular. I enjoyed just standing there soaking up the beauty. I went fairly early in the morning so there were not too many clouds. The beauty is stunning.

If you don't take a helicopter ride you might miss these views. Get on the the highway to Koke's and take it to the end and you will see spectacular sites. Unfortunately on of the pull offs was all fog, but don't despair....just keep going.
