A stunningly verdant view of taro fields and Kauain mountains. Incredibly peaceful.

“Get to this lookout and save the 100s of $ of an helicopter ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

I have no doubt that you will see more from an helicopter ride, but this is always shown as a highlight of those expensives rides in their ads. It is magnificient, and seeing it for free (if you have a car) is even better!

“One of the best views on earth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

This is a breathtaking view and well worth the drive. Take some food to have a picnic at Kokee State Park. Branch out to a hike on the Pihea Trail (around the rim of the Kalalau Valley). It will be an amazing day.

“Words can't describe it's beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

I never knew beauty like this existed on Earth. It was absolutely breathtaking, awe-inspiring. It was a little misty and cloudy, but we stuck around for a little while to take it all in and talk to people. We're glad we did because we saw the most amazing rainbow in the valley. If you go to Kauai, you just have to see this. No doubt about it. Make a day of it and see Waimea Canyon lookout. Whatever you do, go to the Kalalau Lookout. It was probably one of the best things I will ever do in my life--it was that cool.
