Very BEAUTIFUL place. Loved the views!! Great place to stop and take pictures like we did. When I posted my pic on FB, my friend had sent me a pic of her son that she took several years ago.

We were on a circle tour of the Big Island and stopped by the Waipi’o Valley lookout and it was so beautiful. We stopped around twilight and it wasn’t very crowded and it was very lovely. We also enjoyed the many feral cats that hung around! This is a great place to stop and photograph the beauty of the Big Island.

Suitable place to see the beauty of nature. There you can relax, enjoy the view and feel fresh ocean air.
There are small picnic area and restrooms.

The views are simply awe-inspiring. The sheer magnitude of the valley, the ocean, black sand beach and especially the water fall on the far side is simply a sight worth taking in and enjoying. Beyond the photo opportunity the opportunity to simply take in the sight and appreciate the view is incredible.

Second time on the Big Island and had a great stroke of luck as Kilauea started erupting on Thursday afternoon Jan 5. We went to Volcanoes National Park on Wednesday and Thursday morning. Back out on Friday evening late and the following Thursday after dark. Fantastic. Did other stuff like Akaka Falls, Waipio,Parker Ranch and lots more. Basically explored the whole island. Groceries have gotten extremely expensive as dining out also. Be prepared. This was our sixth time to Hawaii and we were shocked at the increase in prices over the past 13 months.

We flew over the Waipi'o Valley in a helicopter tour and it was lush and beautiful with a gorgeous coast. We also visited the lookout which provides absolutely gorgeous views.

The lookout and the journey to there is nice. The street and trail down the valley is closed for tourists and only accessable for local people.

This was a nice drive, interesting to read the history of this valley. You can’t go down to the valley but you can see it from the small parking lot.

This place was just amazing. The view was unlike any other I have experienced. If you are coming to the big island, it’s a must stop on your list!

Spectacular views from the lookout. Road was very steep and wouldn't recommend without an AWD. It was steep hike (difficult heading down and then obviously back up).
