As you drive over the Pali Highway, the city of Honolulu will give way to lush valleys and country landscapes. When you leave the tunnel it feels as if you’re entering a different world. You will be greeted by the turquoise ocean views. A trip to the Windward side of the island reveals a slower-paced side of Oahu, and some of the most beautiful views here in Hawaii.
Once on the Windward side you have two directions to travel. If you go clockwise down the coast you will pass Sea Life Park, Makapuu Point Lighthouse, Diamond Head, and Waikiki. If you drive north you can spend a day exploring the Windward side as the road follows the coast line around the island toward the North Shore. This drive offers many interesting stops along the way, such as Valley of the Temples, “Chinaman’s Hat”, Kualoa Ranch, and some of the best surf spots in Hawaii.
