If you need a break from all the excitement and hustle-and-bustle of your everyday life, look no further! Take a trip over to what is known to be “God’s Country” on Oahu, also known as the Windward Coast. Whether you just want to take a drive over the mountainous Pali Highway, or if you want to experience the breathtaking views of the Nu’uanu Pali Lookout, you will see that it lives up to its alias.
It literally feels like you’re leaving one world and entering another. Just follow the blue/green shimmer of the ocean all the way to Kailua, where you will find amazing shopping and great eats, not to mention the most amazing beach that should be the cover photo of any travel magazine! On your way, you will pass by the Makapu’u Lighthouse, the snorkel sensation known as Hanuama Bay, Sea Life Park, and then you’ll hit the ever so popular Diamond Head.
Also, don’t forget to check out China Man’s Hat and Kualoa Ranch which is featured on many TV shows such as LOST, and Hawaii Five-O. The movie “50 First Dates” has also been shot in this location! You can also take a historic trip to the Polynesian Culture Center and learn about the true legends of Hawaii while enjoying an exciting luau show and some traditional Hawaiian luau food!
