  • It is a look is a huge Valley lookout. There was the biggest Valley in time but did not know when the visit is visited the Na Pali coast from the sea the next day. The view from the top is the best! May often end up back in the Waimea Canyon lookout has come so far and hope to see views of the other side of the island.

  • We arrived. We saw the view. Many did not because they were impatient. We went to the end of the road and hiked to the peak of Pihea and checked the view again on the way back. Then after seeing the p...  more »
  • It's the last stop on Waimea Canyon Drive. We heard it had wonderful views but it was cloudy when we went so there wasn't much to see. We waited about 15 minutes but it didn't clear. If you are taking...  more »

  • Easy to get to. Easy walk out to lookout. Handicap parking. Handicap pathway and restrooms. Few picnic tables, but no shade. Amazing view. Would be great if the viewpoint was more upkept so the view of the ravine would not be impeded by foliage. Hope for a clear, sunny day since it rains often. Worth the stop.
  • Stay behind the railings and you will get an amazing view. If you decide to take the little trail that you occasionally see silly people do: Kauai police today identified a 43-year-old man found dead about two weeks ago in Kalalau Valley as ________________________. xcccc died of blunt force trauma consistent with falling off a cliff, police said. Foul play is not suspected. The morning of June 11, lifeguards responded to a report of a body and found Rollnick’s body along a remote portion of the rocky shoreline near Kalalau Beach.
  • If you catch it on a clear day, it's an amazing view.
  • Breathtaking views once the clouds go away. If you get there and it's really cloudy just wait a few minutes and it will clear up, definitely worth the drive up.
  • The views here are fantastic! The drive up was fun with additional stopping points along the way with views of Waimea Canyon and Waipo'o Falls.
