On Oahu’s Windward (or east) Coast, Nuuanu Pali Lookout stands sentinel over the 1,200-foot (360 m) cliffs of the Koolau mountains.
One of the best viewpoints on Oahu, the lookout provides panoramic vistas across the island. You can also see Chinaman’s Hat and Kaneohe Bay.
In 1795 the lookout was the site of a massacre, when King Kamehameha defeated the island’s warriors by forcing them off the treacherous cliff top to their deaths.
Hold on to your hat, as it can get extremely windy up here, and bring a warm coat and your camera.
The Nuuanu Pali Lookout is on Oahu’s east coast. It’s on Highway 61, four miles (6.5 km) north-east of Honolulu. The Circle Island bus from Waikiki runs through the Pali tunnels, it’s a very scenic drive.
