Great overlook for a postcard-perfect photo. Beauty everywhere you look on Kauai! So peaceful. The vibrant shades of green are amazing. Worth a stop.

Beautiful mountains, gorgeous farmland and lush jungle this lookout has it all. Hanalei is an amazing location. Pretty sure it's been home to lots of movies. It's worth a 10 min stop.

Definitely different from the snow covered mountains we are use to seeing daily. The mountains in the background make this entire part of the island gorgeous.

Probably one of the top 10 sights I have seen - and I have traveled quite a bit. Kauai has a lot of beauty to enjoy and this is one of the best displays!

Kauai is the garden isle and lookouts like this make you wish you had a deck chair so you could put your feet out and bask in its beauty for hours.

If you have plenty of time, then stop to take a picture but it's not overwhelming. Just some taro fields with a beautiful mountain backdrop. We probably spent 2 minutes here.
