Pololu Valley Lookout

North Kohala at the end of Hwy 270
Kapaau, HI 96755

If you drive to the very end of State Route 270 through North Kohala, you will arrive at one of the most scenic vistas on the entire Big Island - Pololu Valley Lookout. This inaccessible region is picturesque on par with Waipi'o Valley, pristine in nature and unspoiled by development. There are several other ways to enjoy the panorama of the Pololu Valley. One is to join the Pololu Valley Kohala Wai Adventure, which utilizes a rugged all-terrain Pinzgauer vehicle. Another is offered by Big Island Helicopter Tours, which flies groups into the otherwise inaccessible areas. Visits by charter boat are also possible.
