Activities at Paradise Cove include:

Arts and Crafts:
The arts and crafts of old Hawaii are as beautiful as they are intricate and complex. During your visit to Paradise Cove, be sure to visit the Hawaiian Village and take part in arts and crafts demonstrations. Learn how to make a traditional Hawaiian lei or leave with a slightly more permanent memory, temporary Polynesian tattoos.

Hawaiian Games:
In ancient Hawaii, games were created as a form of entertainment, but also to develop the skills of the warriors. At Paradise Cove you can take part in some of the more popular traditional Hawaiian games. To test your skills try 'O'o ihe (Spear throwing), 'Ulu maika (Rolling stone disks) and Moa pahe'e (Dart sliding).

Shower of Flowers:
Imagine standing on a beautiful white sand beach gently showered by fragrant island flowers. Witness skilled tree-climbers ascend the highest of palm trees and spread the aloha of the islands with a floral cascade, making this dream-like scene into an experience you will remember forever.

Hukilau on the Beach:
Paradise Cove keeps the traditions of old Hawaii alive with a nightly Hukilau on the beach. You are invited to participate in the ceremonial pulling of the fish nets to the rhythms of the conch shell and Hawaiian chant

Imu Ceremony:
At Hawaii's only Imu Amphitheater, take a seat to view the elaborate process of traditional cooking in the Hawaiian underground oven. In a ceremony following the practices and rituals of ancient times, you will see exactly how your delicious Hawaiian meal is prepared.

Paradise Cove Extravaganza:
With the most spectacular Hawaiian sunset as a backdrop, the Paradise Cove Main Stage explodes with the beauty and excitement of the traditional songs and dances of Hawaii and Polynesia. Award-winning dancers will entertain and amaze you with a performance that is as unforgettable as the perfect setting of Paradise Cove itself.

Paradise cove was an amazing luau experience. We had pickup service at our hotel and the bus ride and our guide was very nice and informative. The scenery upon entering the grounds was beautiful and photo ops endless. Buffet style food that was very good and the crowd moving was great seeing that the night we attended there were over 1,000 people. The show was very good and it truly was an enjoyable event and I would recommend to anyone looking for luau experience.

Returned last evening from the cove and what a beautiful location. It is picture postcard scenery and I would spend a day there, given the choice. We arrived on a tour which meant most of the activities were well under way and queues for most arts and crafts made the kids and adults a little impatient. So, if you can, get there early and take your swimming gear as the cove is lovely and you can go canoeing. Food was perfectly fine and plenty if you wanted it. The show itself was first rate and the dancers certainly captivating, for both sexes - in my opinion it was definitely worth the money.

Great food, the dancing looked professional and they had the best fire dancer I've seen. The night just flowed really nicely. Also, thanks to our bus guide cousin Kai, he made the bus trip back home really fun.

I went to this luau for my 40th b-day. It was a lot of fun from the bus ride there and back with Cousin Tasi who made it very enjoyable. Me and family could not stop smiling and laughing. The luau itself was fantastic from the activities, views, and food. I got the extras and was glad to be right by the stage and had the catered service. I would highly recommend this luau. I had a great birthday.
