When you’re visiting one of the most popular spots in the world, you’re going to expect to find crowds of people, long lines at your favorite restaurants, and the sensation of never being alone.

Eating out for every meal (something you don’t have to do when you stay in an Ola Properties vacation escape!) can be expensive, but the high cost of living on Oahu has taught the locals where to find the deals. Koa Café, located at 91 Kapolei Parkway 5431 #425, is open every day of the week for breakfast and lunch, and with its reasonable prizes and convivial atmosphere, it’s one of our favorite spots to dine. Serving classic meals with a Hawaiian twist, we’ve yet to have a bad meal and very rarely have ever had to wait for more than a few minutes.
There’s something about vacations that make you want to shed all your inhibitions and do something a little wild, crazy, or even, slightly dangerous, and the Coral Crater Adventure Park, located at 91-1780 Midway Street, while perfectly safe, is the spot where you can experience a bit of all three! Offering a variety of exciting activities ranging from rock climbing and off-roading to zipline tours and adventure towers, your inner daredevil will come out from hiding with gusto! A favorite with the locals, Coral Crater can get a little busy at times, but it never seems to get out of control.
