Great spot at the end of a windy road perfect for sunsets and fairly accessible. Get there well before sunset because it fills up quickly and parking is limited. It can be a real headache trying to get out. Might be a good idea to bring some wine and a snack for a mini picnic. If you get there early enough, you can find a nice spot to sit on the grass in front of the gazebo. Also, make sure if you play music out loud that it is crowd/kid friendly as families often visit the spot.
One of my favorite spots for viewing on the island. You can see so much it takes some time to capture it all. The drive along Tantalus is one of the best cruises on the island. All the hillside homes are really amazing and interesting. Although it can be dangerous up there drive safe!
Good spot to watch the sun set. You have to go early tho, for a good parking spot and bring a sweater/cardigan because it can get cold up there or just cuddle your special someone 😉
A beautiful view of the city, Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor, the airport, the beaches, and everything in between! The drive up is super windy and has a lot of switchbacks, so drive slowly. It may seem like a long drive but it is worth it for the amazing view!
The view from this place is amazing and there's a short walk (300ft) from the parking lot to get a great view. Wonderful place for a romantic picnic.
