Beautiful views. Great drive that never gets boring, no matter how many times you drive it. But traffic can be frustrating due to extreme congestion. Constructions are frequent and take forever, further slowing down the flow of traffic.

Great drive - good day trip from Honolulu, stop at the west end to see LOST filming sites near the airport; in summer snorkel at Shark Cove and jump off the Black Rock at Waimea Bay, check out the surfing meccas in the winter - Pipeline, etc. See Turtle beach and also check out the resorts like Turtle Bay. You can easily do this again and again, lots to do! Parking near the black rock is a pain; almost best to park across the street and pay $10, help the locals. Highly recommend this drive and stops!

The entire drive from Waialua to Kahana is beautiful, as is the rest of Rte 83, and most of O'ahu. The tropical scenery, mountains and ocean are views unlike anything on the mainland, and make me want to return for more. On this leg of ourtrip, we especially enjoyed Waimea Falls, Sunset Beach, and the Polynesian Cultural Center.
