Nuuanu Pali Lookout


This is one of my favorite lookout in Oahu and most visited. It is located midway between Honolulu and the Windward Coast, this scenic stop is perched along a mountain pass at a height of 1,186 feet above sea level. On either side of it are peaks reaching elevations above 3,000 feet.

The 985-foot cliffs of the Koolau Mountain Range flank Nuuanu Pali Lookout, the name of which means “Cool Height Cliff.” Off to the northeast is Kaneohe Bay, where the cone-shaped volcanic island known as Chinaman’s Hat can be seen. The towns of Kaneohe and Kailua shimmer in the distance, and the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean serves as a backdrop to it all.
