  • One of my favourite Points on the South Rim; seriously thought about coming back here for sunset as it was far enough away from both the Visitor center and Desert View, which would mean that you would...  more »
  • Moran Point, Lipan Point and Navajo Point give a similar but different view of the canyon. Be sure to stop at each and check it out. 
  • Drove in from the east stopping at every view point. Everyone has good parking and spectacular views.

  • The view here never gets old. This year on my birthday I witnessed the most incredible lightning storm and got some of the best photos of my life. This was the icing on the cake for what has been an amazing two week vacation in Arizona.
  • Beautiful spot. Great view of Grand Canyon. However, concerned for young children under 18 years of age. Saw a few going to edge of canyon. Others walking on rock formations beyond barrier's. Parents just watching them. Crazy. A woman fell off the cliff the previous week. And these kids tempting fate. I'm giving it 5 Stars ONLY for the beauty. They really need a ranger or someone in authority present in these view areas.
  • Great view,absolutely fantastic location. Magnificent!
  • Very nice views. Easily accessible. Amazing!
  • Awesome scenery. A must see in person.
