North Shore Bike Park Oct 30

Over the years many clients have inquired about options for mountain biking on O’ahu and I am happy to share about the North Shore Bike Park located at the iconic Turtle Bay Resort on the north shore of O’ahu. Offering exciting opportunities for friends, families, couples or those traveling solo and seeking adventure. Bikers can zoom down professionally developed mountain bike trails, twist and turn through lush jungle vegetation while an experienced guide shares interesting facts about local geography and history.

Stop by the Hele Huli Adventure Center at Turtle Bay Resort to schedule or call them for more details at (808) 293-6024.

Bicycle Rentals are also available during your stay at Turtle Bay Resort as well -a beautiful resort to explore on a bicycle.

Polynesian Cultural Center Jun 05

For more than 50 years, The Polynesian Cultural Center located on the north shore of O’ahu has been giving visitors an experience unlike any other found in Hawaii. Visitors are immersed in the lifestyles, habitats, entertainment and other cultural aspects of seven Pacific cultures. No wonder that Polynesian Cultural Center has been named “Hawaii’s” favorite visitor attraction by People’s Choice Awards.

Seeing everything in one day is a really difficult task so my suggestion would be to check out the website and carefully organize the time you will spend so that you get to see the villages that interest you most, learn the schedule of the events held in those villages and between those scheduled events visit some of the other villages. No matter where you are at 2:30pm you will want to make your way to the center’s lagoon to watch the Canoe Pageant – Hawaii’s only water-borne show

See  “The Wonders of Hawaii” and get immersed in a big-screen tribute to the hidden splendors of Hawaii (free with admission to the center). Enjoy Village Canoe Tours, Fun Cultural Demonstrations in each village, natives demonstrate crafts and skills like creating clothing from bark, dance, making baskets from leaves, making fire by rubbing sticks (yes it can be done). Visitors learn about descriptions of cooking methods, transoceanic travel, and how the preservation of traditions and history without a written language was accomplished.

Don’t forget to go by one of the souvenir or native handicraft shops.
