Route 63, known as Likelike Highway, is one of three main highways passing through the Koʻolau mountain on the island of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi. The highway passes through the Wilson Tunnel, and takes commuters from the towns of Kāneʻohe and Kailua on the windward (northeast) side of the island, through Kalihi Valley into Honolulu on the leeward (south) side of the island. The other trans-Koʻolau highways are Pali Highway and Interstate H-3.

Likelike Highway (pronounced LEE-kay-LEE-kay) is named after Hawaiian Princess Miriam Likelike, sister of King David Kalākaua.
