The 2nd segment of my Oahu Travel Diary. For more travel recommendations, check out my first post here. Enjoy!
1.Waimanolo Beach: I honestly couldn’t believe my eyes when we visited this beach. The waters are turquoise blue and are untainted by the flux of tourism present in Honolulu. 2. Lanikai Beach: If you are looking for a local beach experience, Lanikai is the place to visit. Not only are the views breathtaking, the waters are also perfect for swimming and kayaking. 3. Lanikai Pillboxes Hike: The first 10 minutes were somewhat steep, but the hike itself is fairly short, only 30 minutes each way. The entrance is located near the Mid-Pacific Country Club. 4. Byodo-In Temple5. Manoa Falls: Abundance of greenery and a rewarding waterfall at the end of the trail. Humid, but worth it.6. Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay7. Seeing Oahu’s industrial side on top of Aloha Tower8. Marukame’s Udon Shop: Our favorite restaurant in Hawaii. Cafeteria-style service, affordable, and unbelievably delicious. Don’t forget to try local fruits such as mangoes, pinapple, and papaya! 9. Sunset at Waikiki BeachThanks for visiting and look forward to my final installment of my trip to Oahu.
