Great to go before your tour of Kalaupapa. Gives you a clear picture of Kalaupapa remoteness. Weather changes constantly. We arrived with full sun. Then a cloud rolled in and we saw nothing. Best for a sunny day

We chose not to take the arduous hike down 1700 feet elevation drop trails, nor the mule ride down that same steep trail. Nor did we choose to pay the $250 bucks or so to fly in (the only other way to get down to the peninsula). This overlook offers a spectacular view down to the peninsula, and out across... More

The view of the cliffs is outstanding and the history you read on the park plaques is heart rending. This is a good preview for the trip down (be it by mule, airplane, or hike) from the "topside" to learn... More
