I recently visited Oahu on my way to Japan with my sisters and even though it was a short visit, it was amazing to be back at the beach! If you’re planning a quick trip to Hawaii, I rounded up my top 5 favorite things to do.
I also included a ‘what I packed’ list at the end of my post!
#1: Turtle Snorkel Adventure Tour
I love starting my Hawaii trip with the turtle snorkel adventure tour on @moanawaikiki! It’s such a great way to kick off your trip & see some sea-life [you can use the code HAPATIME for 40% off!]. You can also check out Hawaii highlights on my Instagram for more info.
OUTFIT DETAILS: ABERCROMBIE BUTTON UP | J.CREW BIKINI TOP | BIKINI BOTTOM | BUCKET HAT | SUNGLASSES
#2: Favorite Food Spots
One of my personal favorite food spots is Yummys [it’s like a Panda Express but for korean bbq food!]. It’s one of the first meals I love getting as soon as I land [it’s a tradition in our family haha]. There are a few locations, but you can go to the one at Ala Moana mall if you’re shopping there and going to Ala Moana beach. A few other favorite quick bites/to-go spots include Island Vintage Coffee, Lanikai Juice, Marugame (also shown below), musubi cafes, the Ala Moana food courts, plus there are lots of great spots in the Kaka’ako area if you venture a little out of the Waikiki beach area!
OUTFIT DETAILS: J.CREW DRESS COVER-UP | BUCKET HAT | SUNGLASSES | STRAW BAG
Go for a hike! If you’re up for a challenge I recommend the Koko Crater Trail for a unique and great workout along with the great views. I also love the Lanikai Pillbox hike for a more mild hike and also some amazing views!
OUTFIT DETAILS: ATHLETA BRA | BIKER SHORTS | SIMILAR SUNGLASSES
#4: Marugame Udon
Grab lunch or dinner at Marugame for some delicious udon and tempura side dishes. The line gets pretty long so plan accordingly [it’s best to go during in between meal times]!
#5: Sunset Catamaran Ride
End your trip with a sunset catamaran ride. You can also book one with with @moanawaikiki or grab a seat on one of the ones that take off from Waikiki. It’s a great way to catch your last sunset in Hawaii + enjoy some good music, drinks and views!
