  • Not sure that I truly understood the expression "breathtakingly beautiful" until I saw Kalalau from this vista. It is just too beautiful for words! 
  • This view is a short hike on the trail. It is a beautiful hike with ocean on one side and trees on the other. Bring water and be prepared for changing weather. Fog and rain rolled in on us pretty fast...  more »
  • Kalalau Lookout is wonderful to once in it really. With a rental car you can go easy here. Do!

  • 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‚Äôs 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.
