Nuuanu Pali Lookout, Oahu

4.4
#6 of 39 in Nature in Oahu
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. To plan Kaneohe vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • The view is spectacular and it's a very simple walk from the parking lot. It does cost to park but it's not too much.  more »
  • We went as part of the Grand Island Circle tour. The views were amazing. Remember your camera. It is VERY windy and chilly. Take a warm jacket and good walking shoes.  more »
