BYOB, 24 hour Yakiniku place we frequent at least every week. Lots of side items, great brisket, all you can eat for a great price. Go there for lunch and spend a cool $14 on a full spread.

Insanely delicious, healthy banana ice cream made from locally sourced bananas. Absolutely perfect after a day at the beach, and very Instagram-worthy. Pro tip: get the papaya boat, you will not be disappointed.

Absolutely beatufiul, stunning views of Hawaii's east side from this seaside cliff/hangout spot. We recommend bringing a picnic, some music, and wathcing the sun go down. Note: Please be very, very careful jumping off the cliff. We see people get hurt (very hurt) all the time here! I personally have a large scar on my leg STILL from surfing this point. Be careful!
