Traveling the Pali Highway to North Shore is a must. I would suggest having a driver (Uber or bus), since you want to make sure to see the sites along the way. The view from the Pali Lookout is breathtaking and the history is very...More

This drive is a must-do. You get a whole new perspective of O‘ahu as you are able to get into the mountain region and out of the downtown hustle. Don’t go a rush hour obviously as traffic is quite heavy. The Pali lookout has some...More

A nice ride across the island. Goes by towns and open green areas. Lush areas which are very nice to see. Nice highway without too much traffic. A nice way to go.

After landing at the airport we took this road to go to our rental at North Shore. The view was fabulous. Great way to get a first look of your surroundings.

Great view of the valley toward the east-side of the island. The history of the spot adds to the significance of the area. It was an easy drive from Honolulu. It is a easy paved walk from the parking lot to the overlook.
