Great view all the way to the ocean. For a more fun adventure , when you leave Honolulu to drive up 61, take a right on Nu'uanu Pali Drive to drive a small back street up to the Lookot
This is only a few kilometers outside of Honolulu and practically adjacent to the main road, so there's not much hiking or even walking involved. The view towards the coast is breathtaking on a clear day, though.
My children took me here on the day I arrived on Oahu. This is a beautiful view overlooking the island. It was quite breezy and a little cooler up here. You could spend a lot more time here if you go hiking.
Its so amazing to come to this spot and learn about the battle that took place here! The look out is amazing and its so cool to see clouds surrounding the mountain tops! Its very windy and cold here so bundle up!!!
