My Tips For You
I have had the chance to explore the heck out of this island and have some handy tips for you while you are here. The first piece of advice from me is to come on any of our photo tours. You might have already been, and that’s great. Just remember, we do have a returning customer discount for you if you are part of the OPT fam.
As much as you might like Waikiki and the busy city, you need to get out of that area and explore. Right behind Waikiki is a beautiful valley called Manoa. In the very back, there is a place that goes unseen by so many people. Still, I highly recommend taking a few hours out of your day and going to Lyons Arboretum after you explore the garden and find all the birds, head over to Surges Mexican Restaurant in the valley for some tacos. Its a chill spot and not too expensive.
If you are thinking about doing anything in the water, do it! The clearest water in the world is right here, and it’s calling for you. The first thing you need to do is get on a board. You are in the birthplace of surfing, so what not a better place to learn! You can also rent a stand-up paddleboard and cruise around. If you are on the North Shore, rent one at Tropical Rush and paddle up the lazy river of Hale’iwa. When you’re all done, the rental place will hook you up with a free shave ice.
How about a cool hike? The Makapu’u lookout for sunrise is a must! The hike is not even that hard, and the views are worth way more than than the walk was. Take it all in and then head into the Koko Marina Shopping center for some breakfast as Moana Cafe. It is so freaking good! After that, the day is yours!
