  • Beachfront Activities

    Waikiki Nightlife

    It was beautifully done. There was the performance near hotel’s largest swimming pool. Nice girls danced Hawaiian dances with those slow waving of their thighs, then all lights were off and darkness covered the beach. I thought they have technical problems with lights, even more I was scared when I heard shooting behind my back. I turned around and...

  • Beaches / Coastlines

    Oahu Nightlife

    What better way to enjoy the tropics than to have a Mai Tai at a beachside bar while watching the sunset. It's cliche, but it's also a must. My favorite place is the Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki, because their drinks are excellent despite the price. The mai tai's at the Hale Koa are supposed to be the best on the island, and I admit they are superb....

The evening starts with a royal procession followed by the imu ceremony (the ritual in which the roast pig...

  • North Shore Bar and Restaruants

    Oahu Nightlife

    Breakers bar is in Haleiwa, HI and not a bad place to grab a beer, listen to "Jack Johnson-like" music and chill out. The night I was there it was packed but had a passive feel to it. A ton of surfers congregate here and generally dominate the demographic. Surfer wear--ie. Flip flops, board shorts, sun tan and laid back mindset.

  • Paradise Luau Cove

    Oahu Nightlife

    It's a luau - so it's commercial and touristy, but worth it. Bring $1 bills to tip crafts people as they help you make lei's and palm leaf crowns. Bring your camera (of course). Great food. I'm veg, but the beau enjoyed the pork. Try the poi - seriously. It's the purple looking soupy stuff. Secretly add a squeeze of pineapple juice and a packet of...

Kalo is an authentic Polynesian princess and developed this authentic show. She used to dance in the performance and was the most elegant and graceful. On occasion her granddaughters will appear in...

    Keida84 was “praising” me for daring to drink Da Fish Bowl, but she forgot her own impressive ability to handle Mai Tai’s. Hale Koa is a bar on the beach, they do have other drinks, but it looks like people go there to enjoy their Mai Tai’s and trust me they are strong! The Hale Koa hotel is serving only military and their families, but their bar...

    I was dissapointed with this place not because of anything other than "how can a place that has over 120 beers not have my Leffe Blonde"? That is so ubsurd! Okay, enough of my rant about not having the Leffe Blonde. This place is an excellent place to grab some drinks, eat or do both. The bar is huge, with all the beers they have on tap (over 120)...
