Nu'uanu Pali Lookout {Travel Series}

After hitting up Shark's Cove and Turtle Beach we went to the Pali Lookout. 


Nu'uanu Pali Lookout
Cost: Parking for non-residents is $3 
Time: 30 minutes 
Location: Off the Pali Highway 

The Pali lookout was the location of the battle of Nu'uanu in the 1700s when Kamehameha I sought to unite the Hawaiian islands. The battle was called Kaleleka'anae (leaping of the 'anae fish) because the men were forced off the cliff during the battle. This was one of the deciding battles that united the islands and made Kamehameha I the first monarch of Hawaii. {Source: Pali Lookout}

The Pali lookout also holds a beautiful lookout of the Windward Coast, and on windy days the wind is so strong it's hard to walk. I've gone a few times when it's so strong I can lean over and the wind just kept me upright.

Jessie and Jake really enjoyed the lookout and seeing the beautiful view. This stop doesn't take too much time, so I would recommend just stopping by. And what I really love is that there is NO hike to get to the lookout!
