Create an itinerary including Nu’uanu Pali
Nu’uanu Pali melds scenic vistas with a site of deep historical and cultural significance. The point, sitting over 305 m (1,000 ft) above Oahu's coastline, provides panoramic views of the Koolau cliffs and Windward Coast. Bring your camera along to capture images of Kāne'ohe, Kāne'ohe Bay, and Kailua. The tranquility and beauty of this spot seems at odds with its dark history. It was the site of one of the bloodiest battles in Hawaiian history, the Battle of Nu'uanu in 1795, in which King Kamehameha I conquered Oahu. Nu'uanu Pali is also known for its incredibly strong winds. Avoid wearing skirts, dresses, or hats, or be prepared to hold on tight to them. Take the guesswork out of planning a Kaneohe vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Is is a very cool place to look out over the valley. It is a historical place in Hawaiian history, as you can read the story in the picture below. It tends to be windy here and beware of the bees ( I am allergic to them). You can get to the point from either direction you are traveling on the main road. You do need to pay to park and probably will have to use your phone & qr code, as the machines were not in service.
  • Absolutely incredible views. $7 parking was a bit of a shock but no regrets.
