Top 5 Favorite Hawaii Scenic Lookouts: HAWAII Magazine reader poll results


The view of Hanalei Valley on Kauai’s North Shore. The  grandeur of Oahu’s windward side from Makapuu Point. The Big Island’s lush and lovely Pololu Valley from the end of highway lookout past the North Kohala towns of Hawi and Kapaau.

We’ve counted the hundreds of answers HAWAII Magazine’s Facebook reader ohana shared with us when we asked them the poll question: “What’s your favorite Hawaii scenic lookout?”

The faves you sent our way spanned every one of our Hawaiian Islands, save for Niihau and Kahoolawe. Everything from lookouts with stunning views easily accessible just by pulling off the road—Waimea Canyon’s multiple overlooks, Maui’s north shore from Hookipa Beach—to overlooks requiring a bit of hiking for your scenic reward—Oahu’s Koko Head summit, the Green Sand Beach overlook on the Big Island.

If you’d like to join in on our next poll and vote along with our growing Facebook fan page ohana, go to HAWAII Magazine Facebook page and “like” us. In return you’ll be ready to share your answers in all of our “Hawaii favorite” poll questions as soon as we post them, know the results of the poll when all of the votes are counted and get all of our daily HawaiiMagazine.com stories and features.

We’ll be posting our next Ohana Poll question on HAWAII Magazine’s Facebook page in the days ahead, so join soon if you haven’t yet.

Here’s the Top 5 countdown of our Facebook ohana’s favorite Hawaii scenic lookouts:


Waipio Valley overlook

(Hamakua Coast, Big Island)

Our Facebook ohana voted Waipio their favorite Hawaii valley in our last HAWAII Magazine Facebook poll, likely enamored with the breathtaking view from this overlook. Every day, dozens of Waipio visitors hike, ride on horseback or take a four-wheel drive vehicle down the uber-steep cliff-hugging road to explore the huge, lush and sparsely populated valley. But the Waipio Valley overlook—almost 2,000 feet above the valley floor—is how most visitors experience the Big Island’s largest and most scenic valley. To get to the lookout, just follow Waipio Road from Honokaa town to its end. Trust us, you won’t miss the lookout.
