  • It is well worth the time to get off the beaten track and make the Waipio valley outlook a must stop on a trip to the north shore of Hawaii.

  • If you walk down and back up, it will definitely test your fitness. It is probably one of the most difficult mile segments you can walk, but it is worth it. The rainforest and black sand beach below are pretty amazing. It is probably worth it to go, even if you are not going down, the lookout gives a great view of the valley. Do not take a normal car down the road, 4-wheel drive only.
  • Beautiful view of the valley but try not to go on a cloudy day like I did or the scenery won't be as grand. Black sand beach at the bottom of the valley and waterfall off in a distance. Short little walk to the lookout point.
  • Amazing spot..beautiful and full of history. I recommend hiring a local guide and visiting. Well worth the expense.
  • Breathtaking view. Worth a look if you're in the area. The road down into the valley looked insanely steep and we were limited on time so we stayed at the lookout. Nice spot for a picnic.
  • Absolutely breathtaking, one of those 'once in your lifetime musts' on your checking list. Make sure you set your Wrangler at gear 1-4wd L. Dwan and dusk are the most gorgeous time of the day, perfect for photography.
