Halona Blowhole Lookout
Nu’uanu Pali Lookout – Breathtaking ocean& mountains views await while you learn the fascinating history. Named “Pali” meaning “cliff” in Hawaiian, the Pali Lookout is the site of the Battle of Nuuanu, where in 1795 King Kamehameha I won the struggle that finally united Oahu under his rule. This fierce battle claimed hundreds of soldiers’ lives, many of which were forced off of the Pali’s sheer cliffs.
A visit to the Tropical Macadamia Nut Farm, which began as a roadside operation in 1987. With Kamehameha Highway in the fore, and the Pacific Ocean at its back, Steve and Chrissy Paty set upon an adventure that is ongoing after two decades. Cracking, sorting and packaging at night, the days were filled with children at the hip and the selling of fresh macadamia nuts from the hood of their car.
