Coconut Island

I'm back from Oahu and I miss it already! I'm so fortunate I got to stay with family because this way I could see Hawaii more like a local. Below are some tidbits you might enjoy if you're blessed with the opportunity to visit this beautiful island.

  1. Eat shrimp in the Kahuka area.
  2. Visit Chinatown on a busy Sunday morning.
  3. Take in the sweeping views at the Punchbowl Cemetery lookout (and honor the military service men and women, too).
  4. Stop at Buzz's for a wickedly strong Mai Tai and calamari "steak" after strolling and bathing in Kailua Beach Park (the "steak" is unbelievably tender, served panko-coated and with beurre blanc and capers).
  5. Visit the Makapu'u lookout and hike to the lighthouse for a breathtaking sunrise.
  6. Have a picnic at Ho'omaluhia Botanical Garden (pick up some Huli Huli chicken at the local Foodland at the Windward Shopping Center on the way).
  7. Eat Vinha d'Alhos (roasted marinated pork chunks) for breakfast at Koa Pancake House.
  8. Kayak in Kaneohe Bay and laugh your ass off every time you tip over.
Read more at Sex and the Beach or just enjoy the slideshow below. Aloha!
