Nuuanu Pali Lookout, Oahu

(4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Nuuanu Pali Lookout melds scenic vistas with a site of deep historical and cultural significance. The point, sitting over 305 m (1,000 ft) above Oahu's coastline, provides panoramic views of the Koolau cliffs and Windward Coast. Bring your camera along to capture images of Kāne'ohe, Kāne'ohe Bay, and Kailua. The tranquility and beauty of this spot seems at odds with its dark history. It was the site of one of the bloodiest battles in Hawaiian history, the Battle of Nu'uanu in 1795, in which King Kamehameha I conquered Oahu. Nu'uanu Pali is also known for its incredibly strong winds. Avoid wearing skirts, dresses, or hats, or be prepared to hold on tight to them.

  • When I remembered and 3/2/1973. Location anyway very windy and cold. Hawaii meant to warm. Certainly plain is warm and Aloha shirt was okay, but only here's exception. As when a landscape is a good impression, but then got on a bus was waiting for departure.
