Worth the very winding trip to the top. Amazing panoramic views of the entire Honolulu area. If you only take a few pictures, take them here. Be certain to lock car.

Amazing view of HNL! Even better view than atop Diamond head coz here you have an awesome view OF diamond head. Awesome sunset view! Parking is a challenge but visuals are worth it!

After many hairpin turns up beautiful Tantalus Drive, you arrive at Puu Ualakaa State Park. We had very little company for the beauty of the area. Motorcycles have a great time on the drive. There are restrooms at the park. Spectacular views.

My husband and I were married on this spot in 1971. Both are from the mainland but he was there stationed at Hickam and I worked downtown. Thanks for the beautiful picture and memories! It is a gorgeous view!

This park has its own trails but nearly everyone seeks out one part of the park where the Tantalus over look is located. That view is great both of the Diamond Head area as well as all of downtown and Waikiki and beyond. I loved...More

So happy we made time to find this lookout. This is so much more beautiful in person than any picture we've seen.
