Additional Activities Near Paradise Cove Luau

When you select vacation accommodations on the grounds of Ko Olina, you can spend the day leading up to your Paradise Cove Luau excursion relaxing along the shores of one of the Ko Olina beach lagoons. With outer rock croppings to protect from large ocean waves, the waters in the lagoons offer a calm ocean oasis perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and stand up paddle boarding. Each of the four beaches on the resort grounds offers a perfect crescent of white sand curved up against aqua blue water. Strung together by a 1.5-mile paved path, you can beach hop among them or simply choose your favorite spot to settle in for the day. Also along this path are shops and restaurants, making a break from the beach to refuel or cool off an easy transition.

Elsewhere on the Ko Olina grounds are a world class golf course, numerous swimming pools, and accommodations that range from chic condos to sprawling private homes with all the charms of Hawaii’s plantation era architecture. With a full marina, beaches, golf course, and activities such as Paradise Cove Luau all at Ko Olina, it’s no wonder the accommodations at Ko Olina are highly desirable!

Leaving the Ko Olina grounds, you have the option of traveling north along the island’s western coastline toward the long stretches of sand found at beaches such as Makaha to the oceanside cliffs and trails of the remote Ka’ena Point State Park. Traveling east will take you to the nearby town of Kapolei, where you’ll find additional shopping and dining options convenient to Ko Olina. Approximately 30 minutes east are the bustling areas of downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, where the casual beach atmosphere blends with the cosmopolitan streets of city life, creating a dynamic place to spend an afternoon. Museums, shops, dining, and the famed Waikiki Beach can all be found here!

To secure accommodations away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still within easy reach, browse our Ko Olina rentals, which put you in great proximity for enjoying a luau at Paradise Cove!

Exciting Oahu Attractions

While in downtown Honolulu visiting the Atlantis Submarine, there are many other attractions within a short distance that are worth exploring. Making the most of your day downtown by seeing some of Oahu’s other exciting sites!

The famed Waikiki Beach is practically right next door, stretching for two miles of golden sand across Oahu’s southern coast. Waikiki Beach is a happening place, and a stroll down its sandy shoreline or on the paved path that backs it is a great way to take it all in. The shoreline is packed with sunbathers, swimmers, boogie boarders, and surfers. In fact, the waves are often gentle here, so those interested in trying out surfing may consider taking a lesson in these famed waters.

At the opposite end of Waikiki Beach sits Waikiki Aquarium, and here you’ll find an up-close look at many of the ocean plants and animals that live in the surrounding Hawaiian waters. Particularly exciting is the Hawaiian Monk Seal exhibit, a creature that is found only in the Hawaiian Islands and is one of the most critically endangered species in the world. The aquarium’s Edge of the Reef exhibit introduces you to some of the fish that may be seen on a snorkeling excursion in Hawaii’s waters, perfect for those who are interested in viewing these creatures while remaining dry! Kids will also enjoy the hands-on element here.

Moving further southeast along Oahu’s coastline, you’ll reach Diamond Head State Monument, a dormant volcano that seems to loom over downtown Honolulu. The peak of Diamond Head offers stunning views of Honolulu and the Pacific for those who are able and willing to make the trek to the top! Formerly used by the military, you’ll find remnants of that use today with several old bunkers dotting the landscape. The Diamond Head hike is about 1.6 miles roundtrip. Although the length is rather short, almost the entire route is filled with stairs. Stairs, rocks, a narrow tunnel, and more stairs make up the terrain to the top. But when you’ve reached the summit, you’ll be rewarded with magnificent views! Be sure to bring along plenty of water for this hike.

After spending some time in Honolulu and Waikiki, it’s a nice breath of fresh air to retreat to the slower-paced western coast, where you can enjoy an idyllic view of Hawaii. Consider making Ko Olina your home base for your upcoming Oahu vacation!

A Day at the Beach

If you’re not sold on surfing but a day at the beach sounds just your speed, Oahu boasts over 125 beaches along its coastlines that are ripe for exploring! From the famed winter waves at Pipeline and Waimea Bay on Oahu’s North Shore to the bustling beaches of Waikiki along it’s South Shore, you’ll find distinct personalities and activities happening along this island’s beaches.

If a relaxing day at the beach sounds just your speed, you’ll find plenty of white sand stretches on which to unwind. The Ko Olina beach lagoons are four crescent shaped beaches located along the fringes of the Ko Olina property. With rocky outcroppings that protect the shoreline from the ocean at large, you’ll find tranquil waters and calm swimming conditions at the Ko Olina lagoons. This is a great place to sunbathe, swim, snorkel, or watch your children play in these glassy waters.

Further up the western coast lies Makaha Beach, a wide stretch of golden sand that is particularly good to visit during summer months. During summer, waters here are generally calmer and offer good swimming and boogie boarding conditions. During winter months, you’ll generally find more experienced surfers here, as the waves and current tend to be stronger.

To make the most of your Oahu beach vacation, consider staying in accommodations that are situated with easy access to the beach, such as our Makaha vacation rentals or our Ko Olina rentals that boast ocean views!

In a place where perpetual summer exists, any day is perfect to treat yourself to this ice-cold dessert! Two Scoops Ice Cream Parlor is one spot you’ll want to visit during your Oahu vacation.

Refreshing Island Treats

While you’ll find plenty of ice cream shops across the island, Two Scoops Ice Cream Shop is unique in that it is a small, family-run establishment. This small mom-and-pop shop is reminiscent of an old-fashioned neighborhood ice cream parlor. Brightly painted murals depicting scenes of Hawaii adorn the walls behind the shop’s counter, while outdoor tables offer a place to enjoy your dessert. A treat at Two Scoops Ice Cream is truly an indulgence, as they offer generous portions that are sure to satisfy your sugar craving.

Choose among sundaes, waffle cones, and waffle bowls, or purchase by the pint! The menu is lined with typical flavor offerings, as well as some locally relevant flavors such as Kona coffee, macadamia nut, Hawaiian mud, and pineapple. In addition, they generally have a unique local flavor featured for their flavor of the month! Bring the whole family for an ice cream treat – the perfect end to a warm, sunny day on Oahu’s west coast.

Planning Your Outing to the Two Scoops Ice Cream Parlor

The Two Scoops Ice Cream Shop is situated in West Oahu’s resort community of Ko Olina at Ko Olina Station, located at 92-1049 Olani Street Unit 3-101C. They are open daily from 11am-9pm. They can be contacted at 808-489-4350 with any questions.

Yana Lehua, Professional

Vacations can often leave us in need of an additional vacation time just to recover. With so many things to see and do on Oahu, it’s easy to overbook your time. Beaches, water activities, shopping, dining, hiking, and golfing opportunities all compete for our attention, and before we known it, we’ve completely filled our itinerary with exciting things to do. While we definitely want to take advantage of our surroundings and the many new opportunities for exploration during a vacation, it is equally as important to schedule in some time for planned rest and relaxation so that we don’t arrive back home completely exhausted.

Alongside all of the prospects for getting out and exploring the island, Oahu offers an equal number of chances to slow down and take some time for rest and rejuvenation. Find a lone stretch of pristine white sand, relax to the sounds of the ocean, unwind in a bubbling hot tub, or book a Honolulu spa session to melt the tension away. All of these options are easily accessible on the island of Oahu, especially when you take advantage of Yana Lehua’s spa services!

In-Home Honolulu Spa Options

While booking a spa session can be alluring, navigating to and from the spa’s location and waiting around with other patrons can make it lose its sense of allure. Another option is to bring the spa treatment to you, eliminating the need for travel and elevating the sense of privacy. Enjoy the rest and relaxation in complete comfort and privacy when you book a spa treatment with Yana Lehua, a company that offers massage therapy on location.

Feel the stress melt away as you close your eyes and experience one of Yana Lehua’s therapeutic spa treatments, better than even the best spas in Oahu. Whether you’re in search of a solo treatment or you’re interested in adding a chair massage to an event, Yana Lehua sessions can be customized to meet each customer’s individual need.

Planning The Best Spa Oahu Treatment with Yana Lehua

Yana Lehua offers massage therapy on location, bringing relaxation to your doorstep. Costs vary by time, ranging from $125 for 60 minutes to $175 for 120 minutes. Bookings can be made in advance by emailing Yana Lehua at [email protected] or by contacting them by phone at (808) 225-8698.

Learn ancient arts and crafts, or compete in Hawaiian games. Learn how the Hawaiians cook their meals, techniques that are still used today, then enjoy a buffet of traditional Hawaiian foods blended with island dishes and continental favorites.

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]

Coral Crater Adventure Park is one such destination that is a thrilling activity center for adults and children alike.

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.

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 Turtles 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.
