The Nu'uanu Pali Lookout is one of the most stunning views of Oahu's Ko'olau Mountain Range. The wind will literally knock you off your feet at this spot though. So take off your hats and hold on to the kids. Aside from its obvious beauty, this spot is the site of one of King Kamehameha's most gruesome victories. In 1795, Kamehameha the Great's troops drove Oahu's men up the hills only to force them off these cliffs and to their deaths. Following that battle, Kamehameha was able to finish his quest and unite the islands. It is rumored that over 100 years later nearly 500 human skulls were found at the base of the mountain. Make sure to bring your camera and a jacket. The lookout is open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. daily as weather permits. Admission is free and there is plenty of parking.
