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.

This lookout is an epic view of the Na Pali coast. It's a classic view of Kauai and all of the Hawaiian Islands. This view point can be fickle in that it can be totally engulfed in clouds at all times of the year. Sometimes...More

Driving up the Waimea Canyon is something everyone does at least once. But go the extra mile and look at what most of us never knew was there to enjoy. Finally on my 5th trip to Kauai I drove 5 minutes more and was rewarded...More

Absolutely breathtaking views but make sure to go early to avoid the fog/clouds. We could see the ocean waves crashing up on the distant beach and gorgeous cliffs.

SO stunning and worth the trip for sure. The parking can be a pain at the end of the road where it takes off from so go early in the morning is my best suggestion.
