Today we found a new historical gem to visit in Hawaii. It’s a beautiful landmark with the best scenic spot and panoramic views that is so breathtaking. The spot I’m speaking about is Nu’Uanu Pali Lookout. The Pali Highway is between Honolulu and Kailua so basically 30 mins from Waikiki. There’s no entry fee but you do have to pay $3 to park your car.
As we drove there the views of the lush Windward Coast the Koolau cliffs are fantastic. The gorgeous tall trees and dense forests to the lookout is unreal. To be so close that you think you can touch it but really not. This is what I dreamed of Hawaii to look like. The natural beauty of the mountains being covered by the clouds and the stone terrace is all just so gorgeous.
So the history is a violent one, this beautiful spot was once a bloody battlefield where hundreds of soldiers died with many being forced off the Pali cliffs. Because of it’s history it’s said that the Lookout receives around 90,000 visitors a day. It’s definitely a spot to visit if you’re traveling to Hawaii. It’s a quick stop to learn about especially if your a history lover. See for yourself below.
