Diamond Head Luau
Grab your ohana (family) by the hand and walk down the beach to the Waikiki Aquarium in the foothills of Diamond Head for a special evening of food, music, and Hawaiian Culture! At a maximum of 350 Guests, Diamond Head Luau is proud to be Oahu’s most exclusive luau, focusing on quality and customer interaction instead of a massive crowd.
Enjoy a lei greeting, Mai Tai cocktails, hula lessons, basket weaving, lei making, Hawaiian tattoo and more before feasting on great tasting traditional and modern Hawaiian food.
Right as you’re starting to smell the Plumeria and realize that life can’t really get much better, the show begins and takes you on a fun journey through Polynesian Culture and Expression. The Diamond Head family looks forward to welcoming you and your family into their Hale (home), and sharing together an exciting evening on the oceanfront of Waikiki Beach!
Diamond Head Luau is so great for families because of the focus is on interactive, cultural activities like: hula lessons, lei making, weaving, ukulele lessons, tattoo, and more. It is this direct interaction with the culture that we find creates the best memories to complement the savory food and upbeat entertainment. Tropical and classic cocktails, as well as virgin blended drinks are also available at the Diamond Head Luau. Book ahead, as they sell out very quickly!

USE ARROWS TO SEE ALL LOCATIONS
Round Trip Waikiki Transportation
Whatever hotel you are staying at in Waikiki, We will provide comfortable round trip transportation in our semi-private mini-coaches. Just the right size to make sure you can enjoy the Grand Circle Island Tour without being being crowded.
Diamond Head Beach Lookout
Diamond Head Beach Lookout was a strategic military site during WWII, and a favorite surfing spot for locals. There’s always a wave to be surfed at this beach. The lookout provides a good view of this hotspot in the foothills of Diamond Head.
After the Diamond Head Lookout, our second point of interest is the Gold Coast in Kahala. This area is like the Beverly Hills of Hawaii. You will see unbelievably large and luxurious properties and expansive estates.
The Halona Blowhole
The blowhole is a natural occurrence formed by molten lava tubes from volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. The lava tubes run to the ocean and, when the surf is right, the blowhole shoots water up to 30 feet in the air.
Situated Near the blowhole in an incredibly beautiful corner of Oahu is a secret beach made famous in the movie “From Here to Eternity.” This little cove is extraordinary, and one of our hidden gems.
After the Blowhole and Eternity Beach, we’ll come upon the body boarding, body surfing, skim boarding, and broken neck capital of the world… Sandy Beach. A famous hangout for locals, and just amazing playground.
Makapu’u Point Lookout
As we round the Eastern Corner of the Island of Oahu, you will get a glimpse at one of the most awe-inspiring views that you will ever see. The vista from the Makapu’u Point lookout is truly something to behold… The Bluest of Blues, the Greenest of Greens.
Waimanalo Bay is an “off the beaten path” spot with a beach that will leave you in awe of it’s shear beauty. The beach is surrounded by an Ironwood forest. We can’t stop here, but it’s so beautiful we’re gonna drive through so you can see it.
Behold the legendary Chinaman’s Hat! This awesome geological formation is located on one of the most beautiful parts of the island. This stop is one of our guests favorite locations to take pictures. You would have a hard time finding a better beach to have a picnic!
Macadamia Nut Tropical Farm
Take a look back at the plantation days in Hawaiian history. Learn the life cycle of the nut from flower to harvest. Indulge in All You Can Eat Macadamia Nut Samples, grab a hot cup of Kona Coffee, and go outside to talk story with the Samoan Chiefs.
Laie Mormon Temple
After we have our fill over at the Macadamia Nut Plantation, it’s time to get back on the road. The next stop we’ll make is over to the amazingly beautiful Temple of the Church of Latter Day Saints in Laie, on the North Shore of Oahu.
The shrimp served on the North Shore is never frozen and actually locally raised in ponds right on their property. Enjoy their famous shrimp sautéed with butter and garlic, or tons of other options that don’t include seafood… But trust me… The Garlic Shrimp… Ono Grindz Cuz!
Exotic Fruit Stand
Mango, Pineapple, Coconut, Breadfruit, Dragon Fruit, Egg Fruit, Lilikoi, Honey Dew, Cantaloupe, Papaya, Apple Bananas, Ice Cream Bananas, Kiwis, Lychee, Rambutan, Sapote, Chi Chi, Jack Fruit… I could go on, but I think I would run out of character limit.
Sunset Beach on North Shore
Known for big wave surfing during the winter season, it is a site for surf competitions and home to the prestigious Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. We’re not allow to get out at this location, but when the surf is up you can see the waves from the bus.
We have now nourished our bodies, regained our energy stores, and it’s time to make our way out through Haleiwa to go to our snorkeling site. But, along the way there, we will pass through the quaint surfing town of Haleiwa, the most famous city on the North Shore.
Sea Turtle Beach (Alii Beach)
A beautiful spot for snorkeling. Large sea turtles (“Honu”) are often seen in the shallow waters here. The shore area is a combination of sand and rocky outcroppings, making the area perfect for snorkeling a seeing some of the local sea life.
Dole Pineapple Plantation
Dole Plantation offers a wide variety of unique gifts and refreshments including fresh pineapple, and DoleWhip ice cream. This is a great spot to grab some things to bring home, or send as gifts. Our stop here does NOT allow time for the train ride or maze.
