Overview

The Nuuanu Pali State Wayside is a perennial favorite lookout stop among visitors to Oahu. The panoramic views of the Windward side of the island from this expansive cliff will blow you away.

Located at Nuuanu Pali State Park, the lookout overlooks the 985-foot cliffs of the Koolau Mountain Range. (Translated, "pali" means "cliffs.") And yes, it is extremely windy. The trade winds blow through the valley between the high mountains on either side, forming a strong wind tunnel of sorts. On extra windy days, you can even lean into the wind and let the gusts hold you up.
