What a ride, very curvy and felt like I was in the tentacles of an octopus. The scenery is gorgeous and when you get to the park lookout absolutely stunning. Pay attention driving to and fro.

It’s the best place to see Honolulu during the sunset! There is nothing else to do, so maybe prepare yourself: grab some food and have a Picknick at the field while watching the city! Perfect for a calm or romantic evening after a day full...More

great to take a look over the valley and around Honolulu from the lookout. Good photo shots. Walking is easy up to the lookout and there is some walking trails to enjoy if you so desire.

Incredible views of the Honolulu skyline & the ocean beyond, but the drive is not easy (very twisting, sharp curves, narrow, etc.), although on paved roads - mostly a 2 lane narrow road. Once you're there it's worth spending a an hour or two, good...More

Viewing from Tantalus at night time is beautiful but according to local people "do not go there". One of reasons is so many crimes occurred the place. You really want to go there, you should use travel company or taxi... More

Route 15 of The Bus goes up and around Tantalus. The park is a half mile walk from the bus route.
