Hanalei Valley Lookout
Kuhio Highway, Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii
The photo op of photo ops. Where else can you get a view of the lush and majestic Namolokama mountain range bedecked with several sparkling waterfalls, all behind a patchwork quilt of gloriously green, water-fillled “kalo” (taro-root) fields? Get out your cameras and capture the splendor of the Hanalei Valley from this perfectly positioned vantage point. Then afterwards, grab a bite to eat and do some shopping at the quaint and lovely town of Hanalei. You can also book yourself an authorized tour of the private taro farms to learn more about Hawaii’s staple starch and one of Kauai’s most prized natural resources.
