Oahu Vista

One of the most spectacular views of the city in Honolulu is at one of Oahu’s state parks – Pu’u Ualaka’a State Wayside. It is accessed from Round Top Road just a short distance from  the Waikiki area. This image is really only showing about 1/3 of the expansive view.  This would be an ideal spot for a panorama at sunrise or sunset. If you get a chance to visit the island, this is one location you’ll want to make sure to put on your list.
