You’ll be picked up from your Waikiki hotel in the morning and taken on a scenic drive by mini-coach to the North Shore. Stop by Laniakea Beach for a chance to view some green sea turtles lounging on the sand.
When you reach Waimea Valley, your guide will lead you on a hike through a lush tropical forest to Waimea Valley Falls, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the pristine water. During your hike, you’ll learn interesting facts about Hawaii’s native flora and fauna from your naturalist guide.
Next, take a boat ride to a secluded location to enjoy a fresh local lunch (meal options in Itinerary below). This special place is known as Secret Beach, located right next to famous movie locations at Kualoa Ranch.
Along the East Shore, visit several scenic lookout points including La'ie Point, the Nu’uanu Pali Lookout, Waimanalo Beach Park, Sandy Beach Lookout and Amelia Earhart Lookout. Be sure to have your camera, as you’ll be treated to endless photo opportunities!
Visit Moli'i Fishpond, listed in the US National Register of Historic Places, and spend some time at Byodo-In Temple, a replica of a 900-year-old Buddhist temple in Kyoto in Japan. Here, you’ll get a unique look at a part of Hawaii’s religious culture.
Continue driving around the island to the South Shore, featuring a unique landscape unlike the lush areas of the North Shore. See the Halona Blowhole and Halona Cove, and visit Hanauma Bay and Makapu'u Lookout.
Arriving back in Waikiki, you’ll be dropped off at your hotel to conclude your amazing experience of the whole island of Oahu.
