The Waipio Valley Lookout is a scenic attraction located on the northeastern Hamakua Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii near Honokaa town and about 60 miles away from Kailua-Kona.

We visited the Waipio Lookout just to enjoy the view, but some brave people drive down to the bottom of the valley with 4X4 vehicles or hike down the very steep 25% grade path on foot.

If you don't have a 4X4 vehicle or would rather not hoof it yourself, there are wagon and ATV tours that shuttle visitors to the floor of the "Valley of the Kings" as it was once known.

Those that do make the 1 mile (30-45 minutes) hiking trip down to the bottom of Waipio Valley will be treated with several waterfalls, a mostly deserted black sand beach, fertile taro fields, rivers, and 2000 feet high green cliff sides.

Walking Down To View
To reach the Waipio Valley Lookout using a Garmin GPS unit, search for "Waipio Park" in the POI (points of interest) database.

Alternatively, you can set your GPS for the intersection of Waipio Rd (Hwy 240) and Kukuihaele Rd (Old Government Main Road).

Then continue west on Hwy 240 until you reach the Waipio Valley Lookout parking lot on your right.
