Puu Ualakaa State Park, Honolulu

4.2
#4 of 9 in Nature in Honolulu
Hike, meditate, read a book, picnic, or just enjoy the view from the green grass of Puu Ualakaa State Park, where Elvis filmed "Blue Hawaii.” Take photos of panoramic views of Diamond Head, the Pacific Ocean, and the city of Honolulu from this "rolling sweet potato hill.” Quiet, clean and refreshing, with the scent of eucalyptus in the air, the park is well equipped with restrooms, drinking water, picnic shelters, hiking trails and free parking. Look out for feral cats and mongooses running around. Drive up and down the hill carefully since the road is very curvy.

  • Our Uber driver took us to this Park without letting us know ahead of time, what we were in for. How AMAZING to see Honolulu from above! The place gets crowded - as expected - but is definitely worth ...  more »
  • Summit is narrow meandering streets are little could peak Observatory also reasonably comfortable, clean comfortable per is good, but a little off the Summit views better balance in the position than the view from the Summit is personally very good.

  • I try and go on a sunny day. I guess 混manai is on a weekday than the weekend, restless and many TV couples as I'm used to taking place.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
