Kamehameha Scenic Highway

12.8 miles: 0 hours, 23 minutes

Skim along the windward side of O'ahu on Kamehameha Scenic Highway (SR 83), where cool ocean breezes blow against sandy beaches. Rocky cliffs dive deep into the shining blue waters as nearby palms feather the shoreline. Capture the perfect Hawaiian-beach postcard image on this awesome drive.


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.
