We were based near-by, so we got to check out the lookout several times. As expected, there were often clouds limiting the view, but we were lucky enough to see it in excellent lighting on our third visit. But even the clouded vistas are inspiring.

Loved the view of NaPali coast, and moreover, the weather. 71 degrees here vs 84 in Poipu....oh so pleasantly humid! View would depend on weather. We had relatively few clouds and it was dry all day. Restrooms available at parking. Parking seems enough - you...More

When we arrived the entire area was enveloped in heavy fog. We waited about 10 minutes and it cleared to a breath taking view! The fog rolls in and quickly rolls out so be patient and you will see the Na Pali Coast in all...More

The views are beautiful at the top when the weather is clear. It's a nice drive regardless with plenty of places to stop along the way for views of Waimea Canyon.

This might be one of the top gorgeous views in the world! Try to get there on a day when the skies are clear.

Waited to view 10 minutes since it had just rained, but when it cleared it was well worth the wait. Breathtaking views of the ocean and Napali coastline. Had tried to do Kalalau trail in December to beach from Haena, but due to weather report...More

One of the most amazing views from the canyon. Get a feel for the NaPali coast without a helicopter or cruise. Views of the mountains & sea from up in among the clouds. Seeing fog rolling in from the canyon helped us understand how this...More

The view of the napili coast is breath taking. Words cannot describe how spectacular it is. And the best part is you ca drive to the lookout. If you attempt the hike, it's slippery and difficult in parts but the views get better.

When we got there we could not see anything because there were clouds blocking the view. It was too bad because the view is supposed to be very interesting. So after maybe 5 minutes we decided to go check out the next lookout (Pu'u O...More
