Well-known snorkel area in a protected cove. The beach is absolutely worth sitting on and enjoying for a couple of hours. When you arrive, they issue tickets with a timestamp indicating at what time you are able to enter (crowd control).

Moderate hike (4-5 miles depending on how far you take it out). Mostly shaded, but the views at the top are incredible. You can see both sides of the island from the southern point. Careful with street parking - residents will report vehicles parked within 4' of the driveway. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/hawaii/oahu/kuliouou-ridge-trail

Pillbox gets SUPER packed, but most people take the trail from Lanikai. The back trail head is usually much less crowded and will have ample parking. <1.5 miles to the top. Shoot me a message if you aren't sure where the back trail is and I'll send a pin :)

Spinner dolphins love to hang out at Makaha! Hard to say when they'll be there, but worth it to cross your fingers and go!

Popular (somewhat too popular) hike with pretty great views at the top. It's steep and unforgiving on the knees :) Takes most people < 30 min to reach the top.

Worth the effort to drive all the way to the top for some great photos. After driving past the entrance gate, follow the road up for about 2 miles. You'll know when you get there :)

Easy hike with a good dip at the end! <3 miles long, easy terrain, mud likely. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/hawaii/oahu/maunawili-falls-trail?u=i

A sunrise walk on the beach can't get any better than this. Grab coffee and breakfast sandwiches at the Kalapawi Market on your way down. https://www.yelp.com/biz/kalapawai-market-kailua

We had a great experience with One Ocean Diving. As shark conservationists and researchers, their goal is to help educate and teach people all about the world of sharks. They'll provide snorkel gear for your guided dip with the sharks. Highly recommend the experience! https://oneoceandiving.com/

Cute town with great food trucks and lots of little local shops. Look for No 7 Japanese Food Truck - best poke on the island! https://www.yelp.com/biz/no7-japanese-food-truck-haleiwa-9

Vegan sushi to die for. Ignore the vegan part - the things they do to these vegetables is so delicious it should be illegal. Definitely make reservations ahead of time, or order carryout on your way back from town.

The drinks are phenomenal. Great spot to stop off after a day of adventure on the westward side.

Tapas-style Asian infusion menu inspired by southeast Asia's street food theme. Located in Kaka'ako, an urban art district that is fun to walk around. This is a truly unique restaurant and worth the drive!
