This byway skirts the eastern coast of the Island of O'ahu and backs up to several forest reserves and state parks. Snugly traversing the coastline, the dramatic vistas encompass an expansive ocean view, complete with spraying surf, inviting sandy beaches and tropical mountains. Breakers are often visible out on the reefs. Coastal beauty shines as bright as the Hawaiian sun on the Kamehameha Scenic Highway (SR 83) drive.
