Our local recommendations will take you up and out of the hubbub of Honolulu, through picturesque scenery, to tide pools and kayaking, and back to the fresh air markets and one of the island’s best Luaus. Dive into our history at the Polynesian Cultural Center and spend every evening admiring the glowing skies from our top sunset spots. No matter what you’re looking for, we are happy to be your guide to Honolulu activities and more.
The market at Kapiolani Community College is the largest on the island and worth checking out. Browse and taste tropical fruits, vegetables and flowers - we recommend lilikoi! You can also purchase top quality beef, seafood, baked goods, hand-made pasta, local honey and coffee!
Located in the heart of Honolulu, Kaka’ako Farmers Market brings the abundance of the country into the heart of the city. Enjoy an ice-cold freshly cracked coconut while listening to the local entertainment.
