Local Flavors



Makapuʻu Point Lighthouse

Atop an easy paved path hike, sits the Makapu’u Lighthouse overlooking Oahu’s eastern shoreline. This hike to the site pays off with breathtaking views of the ocean.

Koko Crater Railway Trailhead

Today the WWII era tracks running up the steep trail are used by hikers to reach the top, but efforts will be rewarded with stunning, panoramic views of Oahu.

Mānoa Falls

Located in the heart of Manoa Valley, stands a 150-foot waterfall surrounded by lush scenery just about 15 minutes outside the bustle of Honolulu (a 1.6-mile round trip walking path).


Waikiki Kūhiō Beach

Steps from our doors, Waikiki Beach is a must see for any visitor. The birthplace of modern surf culture, this world-famous stretch of beach offers countless photo ops and the perfect place to try surfing or canoeing, or to do nothing at all.

Banzai Pipeline

Perhaps the most famous surf spot in the world, the Banzai Pipeline is named for the long tubes formed by breaking waves. Expect to see massive swells on the North Shore between October and March, and of course the daring individuals who ride them.

Ala Moana Beach Park

A local favorite, Ala Moana Beach Park isn’t as famous as Waikiki, but is no less sundrenched or picturesque. An outer reef provides calm waters, and a manmade peninsula called Magic Island forms a protected lagoon perfect for keiki (children).

Hawaii Culture

‘Iolani Palace

The only royal residence on US soil, ‘Iolani Palace is one of the most unique places in the world. Guests take a guided tour through the palace, taking a closer look at the precious items in the Throne Room, Dining Room and King Kalākaua’s Library.

Kualoa Ranch

A sprawling 4,000-acre retreat offering ATVs, a zip-line, a “secret” beach & tours of film and TV locations like Jurassic Park and Lost, Kualoa Ranch has so much to offer. It’s where natural beauty meets pop culture iconography meets outdoor adventure.

Pearl Harbor

The home site to an event that changed not only Pearl Harbor, but the world. December 7, 1941 marks the fateful day the Japanese launched a surprise attack on Oahu, making Pearl Harbor today the home of the USS Arizona Memorial and a site packed with historical significance.

Polynesian Culture Center

42 acres of tropical splendor full of opportunity to explore the rich heritage of the Pacific and experience traditional hands-on activities and dine like royalty at an authentic Polynesian lūʻau, while viewing one of the most spectacular shows on island.

Sights to See

Tantalus Lookout Puʻu ʻUalakaʻa State Park

Overlooking downtown Honolulu, Puʻu ʻUalakaʻa provides a panoramic view of southern Oahu from Diamond Head to Pearl Harbor. Sites of beautiful landscapes and seascapes by day and stunning city lights at night make Tantalus/Puʻu ʻUalakaʻa a must see!

Nuʻuanu Pali Lookout

The Pali Lookout is the site of a great battle which resulted in the unification of Oahu under Kamehameha I, now holding great value in Hawai’i culture and history. The stone terrace of the lookout provides scenic views of eastern Oahu and its shorelines.

Hoʻomaluhia Botanical Gardens

Windward Oʻahu’s Hoʻomaluhia gardens are rightfully named “a peaceful refuge.” Since 1982 the 400 acres of gardens continue to represent global tropical plants from regions including: the Philippines, Malaysia, Tropical America, India, Sri Lanka, Melanesia, Hawaiʻi, Polynesia, and Africa.

Hālona Blowhole

A rock formation making up a lookout, blowhole, and beach cove located right off Hanauma Bay. Created originally by lava tubes formed by volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago, since the iconic beach has also been used in a variety of film settings.
