They have ziplines, horseback riding, ATV rentals, a private beach, movie scene tour (think "Jurassic Park), and many other activities at this working horse ranch. Plus, you'll get to the Windward side of the island - my favorite side! It is rainier on that side of the island, so make sure to be prepared.

Take a stroll or morning run along Kapiolani Regional Park which is just directly across from the condo. Many of Hawaii’s alii (royalty) lived in Waikiki and King Kalakaua selected a 300-acre track of land at the base of Diamond Head for a public park in 1867. Today, it is a gathering place that thrives with walkers, runners, tennis enthusiasts and picnickers. Grab lunch on Kalakaua Avenue and enjoy it in one of the shaded picnic areas scattered around this colorful park.

A moderately easy hike to a scenic viewpoint overlooking the Windward Coast. A shining beacon built in 1909 on a 600-foot sea cliff overlooking Makapuu Beach—a stretch of sand known as one of Oahu’s best bodysurfing beaches—and family-friendly Sea Life Park. Fifteen minutes past Hanauma Bay and beyond Sandy Beach, you’ll find the large parking lot that leads to the 2-mile paved trail overlooking the lighthouse. This moderately easy hike pays off with breathtaking views of the indigo ocean and Oahu’s eastern, or Windward Coast. You can even see the island of Molokai in the distance. Two other smaller islands, Manana, also known as Rabbit Island, and Kaohikaipu are visible offshore.
