The Waipio Valley Lookout is located in the Honokaa area of Hawaii's Big Island has spectacular views of the Hamakua Coast. As you look off into the distance, you can see the Kohala Mountains that weave along the windward side of the Island.

The Waipi'o Valley itself has a beautiful black sand beach called Waipi'o Beach which extends for about a mile. There is a steep path called the Muliwai Trail To Waimanu Valley which will take you down into the valley and beach from the lookout. This trail is for foot traffic only, not vehicles.

The Waipi'o Valley has historical significance since it once was a settlement of the early Hawaiian Ali'i (chiefs /rulers). At the bottom of the trail, you can find taro patches still being farmed by locals. At the backend of the valley, there is gorgeous waterfall.

This is a spiritual and breathtaking part of the island not to be missed.
