Many reviews that fall under the Waipio Valley include information about going down to the valley itself. If you are heading to the lookout, then you are probably like me and for one reason or another you are not going to take the 4 wheel...More

It is really a spectacular. However, unless you go down to the valley by off road vehicle, the scenery is just as you see in the picture, nothing more than that. You can only spend several minutes at the Lookout. In that sense, it is...More

View was great! Easy to see how the tsunami could be so destructive in this area. Disturbing to see posters of missing young man who disappeared while hiking here.

The experience is GREAT! It is one of those hikes that you feel SUPER good about yourself after you finish. Of course you can drive down (in a 4x4 only), but I think you get the true experience walking. It is a hard hike though....More

If you happen to be in the area, this is a BEAUTIFUL overlook! The view is STUNNING. In order to get the best view, you’ll have to walk down a cement path, about 50m. What goes down, must come up though. :) There are handrails...More
