Transportation

Distance from the Honolulu International Airport to Ko Olina is a little under 20- miles. There are several ways to get to Ko Olina:

Municipal Transportation (TheBUS): Cost is $2.50 per person, should take about an hour and a half, and would require one transfer. You are allowed to bring a bag onto the bus as long as it fits on your lap or under the seat in front of you. Busses do not have any baggage storage areas available anywhere, and you are not allowed to store any bags on the seat beside you.
Technology Transportation (Uber / Lyft): This is fairly new to our city, and there are many laws that are constantly changing. If you already use Uber or Lyft you should inquire what current restrictions may affect you. The most current ruling that is being enforced is regarding your pick-up. Uber / Lyft drivers are not allowed to pick anyone up at the airport. If you are scheduling a ride you must order your pick-up in an area outside of the airport.
Airport Shuttle (SpeediShuttle): If you don’t mind sharing a ride with other exited vacationers you may consider jumping on SpeediShuttle. Cost is $15 per person, one way and may have multiple stops. Cost includes two bags, each additional bag is $8 each.
Taxicab: If you have four or more people in your party a taxicab is probably your best value. At $65 per cab, one way, you can get a cab in the airport and have the whole vehicle to yourself. There are no “number of bags per person” restriction, in fact the number of bags are restricted to what fits in the trunk. If it does fit you will need to order a second cab and pay for it.
Sedan: Sedans make a luxury start of your vacation. For $175 per vehicle, one way, you can ensure a larger vehicle and a driver with a clean professional look.
Limousine: Start your vacation in style. Drivers will meet you at the gate, take you to baggage claim, help you with your luggage. At $220 per vehicle, one way, there’s nothing like starting your luxury vacation feeling like a rock star.

Naked Cow Dairy Farm

One of the sacrifices of living in our beautiful paradise of Hawaii is that goods such as dairy are often shipped from the mainland, across miles and miles of the Pacific Ocean—but you can find a wonderful exception to that rule at Naked Cow Dairy Farm, the only authentic Hawaiian dairy farm here on Oahu!

Natural Dairy Delights from a Farm with Quality and Compassion

Located in Waianae on the west side of Oahu, Naked Cow Dairy Farm has been a fixture of the community since 2007. Frustrated with the industrialized dairy industry, the founder Monique van der Stroom wanted to revive the natural production standards of small family dairy farms. In a time where hormone and antibiotic treatments are more common than ever, Naked Cow Dairy eschews that notion, and all of their animals are free of such treatments. Hence the name, Naked Cow—the way mother nature meant for them to be!

The cows that their dairy products come from are well loved, and you can taste the difference in their line of gourmet creamery butters, hand-crafted artisan cheeses, and freshly made yogurt. They only utilize feed that is grown in Hawaii, such as grass, sugar cane, pineapples, macadamia nuts, as well as a number of other naturally sourced feeds. As an added bonus, the farm is more sustainable for these practices, and they actively work to scale down their carbon footprint!

If you want to learn more and enjoy an exciting evening of tasting some of the finest cheeses on the island, you can take a mozzarella cheese making class offsite at the SALT at Our Kaka’ako shopping center. For two hours, you’ll be guided through the cheese-making process with a knowledgeable expert from start to finish, and you can even take your cheese home with you at the end! After the class concludes, you get to enjoy a glass of wine and sample some of Naked Cow’s best cheeses and can purchase a few if you’d like. It’s a fantastic way to glean more information about the island, and what it takes to produce sustainable dairy goods 2,000 miles in the middle of the Pacific. If you don’t have time for the cheese making class, you can still pick up some of their products at Whole Foods to enjoy in your gorgeous rental, or maybe even on the beach with a breath-taking view!

You can reserve cheese classes online or email them at [email protected]

Zip Line Courses

Zip lining through the trees of Hawaii is an experience that must be seen to be believed! Sure, you have seen the pictures of all the gorgeous scenery our island has to offer, but it is completely different when you are up in the treetops going 25 miles per hour. Each course ranges from 300 to 900 feet and can be enjoyed by individuals of all ages. You will be taken along six different courses for a two-hour adventure. Make sure to dress comfortably and wearing closed-toe shoes is a must.

ATV Adventures

Visitors to the Coral Crater Adventure Park can enjoy an off-road adventure with certain packages. Guests will be taught how to navigate these ATV vehicles on an impressive course you can let loose on. Each vehicle comfortably sits two so you and a loved one can easily drive around together and get dirty.

Aerial Course Challenge

Once you have had your fun on the zip line course and ATV track, make sure to try out the Aerial Adventure Course. This challenging course features 18 different elements that includes you swinging, climbing, and jumping feet above the ground. The Aerial Adventure Course is not just some short obstacle course either; this course recommends an hour and a half to really enjoy all its features!

PAPAONEONE (TURTLE) BEACH

Turtle Beach

The Hawaiian name of this beach is Papaoneone Beach, but it is more commonly known as Turtle Beach, named for the Sea Turtles who like to feed on the seaweed that grows on the reef here. These Sea Turtlres can frequently be seen in the early morning hours just offshore.Turtle Beach is a hidden gem on Oahu’s Leeward Coast. It is not among the most popular beaches on this side of the island, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a bad beach. To the contrary, the almost white sand contrasts amazingly with the azure blue water. The ocean looks especially turquoise here for some reason; more than on many other Oahu beaches. On the south end of the beach is Mauna Lahilahi, a small mountain which provides a scenic backdrop. Two condominiums, The Hawaiian Princess and Makaha Beach Cabanas, are also located on this side of the beach.  Checkout our rentals at The Hawaiian Princess if you’d like to spend a few days on this magnificent beach.It’s easy to miss Turtle Beach while driving along Oahu’s west shore as it is not visible from the road. There is a small dirt parking area along the road and three narrow public access walkways leading to the ocean. The only thing Turtle Beach lacks is shade. So if you plan to come here for the day, bring a beach umbrella.In the winter months, the surf can get very high here and this is when swimming is too dangerous. Even in the summer months there can be a strong shorebreak and currents on this beach. A sea cave, called Ulua cave, is located offshore and is a popular scuba diving location in the summer months, with a depth of around 80 feet. As always, be careful when going into the ocean and be aware of your surroundings at all times.
