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.

  • Absolutely incredible views. $7 parking was a bit of a shock but no regrets.
  • Incredible views! Short walk from the parking and less crowd compared to other places! Try and visit this place closer to the sunset time for some beautiful views..
