10 things to do in Honolulu

WAIKIKI
  1. Electric Beach– Located on the beautiful West side of the Island, this beach is known for Dolphins and great snorkeling.
  2. Kahana Rum Distillery– This local distillery is home to one of the best Agricole Rums in the world. Come taste this amazing rum, learn about the history and enjoy local treats.
  3. Manoa Chocolate– Nestled in the cute beach town of Kailua, sits this delicious treat. Here you will be able to sample, buy and learn how local chocolate is created on Oahu. Both Kahana Rum Distillery and Manoa Chocolate work together to help create sustainability within hawaii. With that said, you must try the Kahana Rum infused with Manoa Chocolate and the Manoa Chocolate infused with Kahana Rum!!
  4. Kualoa Ranch– This of course is on the top for many reasons. Our reasons are little different. Outside of the tours they offer, Kualoa Ranch has a free small petting zoo, area to see the horses and my favorite farmers market. Kualoa ranch is a huge functioning farm, and at the market, you are able to buy home grown, fruits, vegetables, shrimp, meat and even Oysters (seasonal). The Market is open Thur-Sunday.
  5. Tropical Macadamia Nut Farm– Yum! There is a variety of different flavored Mac nuts and you cannot buy them anywhere but here! Between the Mac nuts, coffee, local sauces and seasonings, I find myself going there twice/ month to pick up my family staples
  6. Shark’s Cove– Known for World renowned Diving (summer) and Surfing (winter) this spot is a treasure. With plenty of tide pools and great food trucks, across the street, this is a great area to stop on the North Shore of Oahu.
  7. Surf– Waikiki is one of the best places to learn or improve your surfing skills in the world. Head to Duke’s Statue, where there are many surf booths who offer board rentals and lessons for all levels.
  8. Try Scuba Diving– Ever wondered what the underwater world looks like but too intimidated to Try Scuba Diving. Try Scuba Diving Honolulu is a great company that specializes in taking beginners out scuba diving for the first time. You do not need to be certified or have any prior experience to do the tour! Don’t miss out, it is so much fun. http://www.TryScubaDiving.com
  9. Booze Cruise– Take a sunset catamaran out of Waikiki to enjoy the ocean breeze and Hawaii’s famous Mai Tai’s.
  10. Manoa Falls– This is great waterfall hike for all skill levels located right outside of Waikiki.
