Great lookout point, beautiful view. Several hikes lead to here including Old Pali road.
Panoramic views of Windward Oahu
if you're in the area, besides doing the regular touristy stuff. there is a hike that's off the beaten path called the Pali Puka hike, definitely a recommend if you're in the area. Moderate hike, path is slightly marked by the footsteps from past hikers that have cut through the shrubbery. Be careful when near edges, since it's not an official hike, there are no safety rails. There are some ropes that friendly hikers have left for other hikers to use.
The Nuuanu Pali Lookout offers panoramic views of the sheer Koolau cliffs and lush Windward Coast. Driving up the Pali Highway through tall trees and dense forests to get to the lookout, you’ll see the city disappear and the tranquil beauty of Hawaii’s natural landscape emerge. Perched over a thousand feet above the Oahu coastline amid mountain peaks shrouded by clouds, the stone terrace overlooks the areas of Kaneohe and Kailua, Mokolii (a pointy island locals call Chinaman’s Hat) and the University of Hawaii’s marine biology research center, Coconut Island. Other notable landmarks that can be seen are Hawaii Pacific University’s Windward campus, Kaneohe Marine Corps Base and the Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden, which is part of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens.
The Pali Lookout is one of the most special places on the island of Oahu. The site of a massive battle back in the day when Kamehameha united (aka conquered) the rest of the islands and created the Hawaiian Kingdom, some believe the winds rage because of the spirits that were driven off the cliffs during that historic fight. Overlooking Windward Oahu, this is beautiful to visit whether it's sunny, rainy, or in between(y). Bring your camera, beware of falling rocks if you ignore the signs and go hiking, and be sure to have reverence because this place has some Soul Power man...
