    The Famous Lookout

    by machomikemd Updated Dec 8, 2009

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Pali Lookout was the sight of the famous Battle for the unification of the Hawaiian Islands in the 1700th century! It was here in 1795 that King Kamehameha and his warriors defeated the O'ahu armies by sending them over these steep, forested cliffs and claiming his victory and uniting the Hawaiian Islands. The breathtaking sight and the gruesome history of the battle fought here is enough to cause a chill to run up your spine.

    From this vantage point you can see Kaneohe Bay, Chinaman's Hat, and Hawaii Pacific's Windward Campus.

    Favorite thing: Such a beautiful view of part of the island. You might as well stop by for a few minutes and enjoy it. I believe there is a lot of history here too. Its off of Pali highway i think, but i dont know exactly where. You take a short stroll through Nuuani Pali state park and end at the lookout. Its amazing!!!

    Favorite thing: Visit the Pali lookout. Legend has it this is where lovers leap. Besides it has a beautiful view of the valley.

    Fondest memory: Hanama Bay is the most beautiful place to visit in Hawaii. From here to eternity!
