Half day at the best lookouts and beaches on O'ahu
This short tour is all you need to have a real Hawaiian Experience.
We will drive half of the island to get to beautiful lookouts and beaches. The idea is to enjoy the most we can in a short time. We will check the Hawaiian Mountains on the east side, going to the best scenic points on the island. We will stop at a beautiful beach to swim, and we will also be looking for wild life like turtles or Monk seals.
Makapu Lighthouse will be part of this short ride too, the ocean lookout shows you almost the whole east coast. During the winter season and if we are lucky we can see some whales jumping around and playing all around this coast. After all, this place is considered the best place for whale watching.
We also have a very short stop on Halona Blowhole and we could not finish this short excursion without stopping on Diamond Head Volcano lookout.
After I pick you up we will drive up to Pali HWY. This route crosses the island from South to East down the middle.
We will then stop at Pali Lookout and we'll continue our way to the east where we'll stop for a short swim on a beautiful beach (conditions allowing) that will take like 30 minutes.
We'll keep our way South-East to the most amazing lookout on the Island. From here you can see almost all the east side and get a stunning view of the Hawaiian mountains.
After 3 hours we'll get to the south where we will pass Sandy Beach and Halona blowhole and, of course, before our way back we will stop at Diamond Head lookout. If we have time we'll drive thru the place where surf was born, Waikiki Beach.
After 4 hours we'll come back home safely and you will already know half of this island.

If you want a good way to get around Honolulu, Tours by Locals with Daniel Luque is the way to go. Daniel was very knowledgeable about History and took us to some amazing look outs and stops. We even stopped for lunch where he made some recommendations. I had the Ahi Poke which I would never have chosen for myself if Daniel hadn't suggested it. Loved every bite. Plus we ate it sitting overlooking the beach. What a breath of fresh air. I recommend this way to sightsee for everyone.
