    Easily the spot with the best views. It's constantly evolving through each day. Ample parking and not crowded even when tour buses come. Don't miss a stop here! Say hi to the wild chickens and cats

    If you're a Hawaii resident, you don't have to pay the $3 parking fee. Don't leave valuables in car -- lots of break-ins happen here!

    By far the most gorgeous view I've seen in Oahu! Worth the price of a rental car just to drive the Pali and see these amazing views of mountains and ocean.

    Elvis filmed Blue Hawaii in its entirety from the lookout. Do not duck if the falling rock comes at you. Just yell no and walk backwards slowly.
