  • A little farther up is the Wai'ale'ale Lookout point and it was completely clouded over and raining (one of the wettest spots on earth), so when we went just a smidge father down to the Kalalau Lookou...  more »
  • Arriving at the Kalalau Lookout you risk disappointment since you may find yourself immersed in the clouds, but don't get discouraged just have some patience that before your eyes will open a great landscape, a beautiful Green Valley with a cobalt blue sea. Hurry up to take pictures because just as quickly you will see reform clouds will envelop you in an instant.

  • The top offers a magnificent view. Better to go there in clear weather. Rugged cliffs - are only in Hawaii

  • 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.
