  • Head north out of Princeville and stop at the vistas on the way to Hanalei. Beautiful and breathtaking vistas. At the bottom of the road, just past the bridges is a wonderful place to pull over and lo...  more »

  • Great viewpoint on the mauka (mountain) side of Highway 56 at Princeville. Much of Hawai'i's commercial production of taro, made into poi and chips, takes place here. It is believed that taro has been grown here since at least the year 700. Namolokama Mountain is visible in the background.
  • You'll miss this quick pull off if you are not paying attention. The parking is area is poorly set up and the re-entry is problematic if there is any traffic or the site is busy. Had people backing out in front of me, more cars pulling in quickly and blocking people from leaving, and cars facing one another; so neither could see or drive out of the small turn off. Otherwise, if you want to risk it, the view is not bad.
  • Awesome Valley Overlook. Must see stop. Good parking with fast turnover. Great storyboards.
  • Really impressive overlook - you get this Jurrasic Park feeling 😜😜 you should really stop for a good pic!
  • Amazing view and picture opportunity of Hanalei's lo'i or taro fields.
