Kualapu'u (view panorama) is located in the northern part of Molokai on the way to the Kalaupapa Peninsula Lookout. In the Hawaiian language, Kualapu'u literally means "hill overturned." However, it is thought to be a corruption of Pu'u'uala, meaning "sweet potato hill." The settlement is a former pineapple cannery village that was once associated with Del Monte Foods.
