Paradise Found Pt. 2

Updated: Aug 3, 2018

Stop 3: Alohalani Resort Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii

Our giveaway trip didn’t end in Fiji, we also got a 5-night free stay in Waikiki Beach!! We flew back in time when traveling from Fiji to Hawaii so we got to spend Sunday March 25, 2018 in Fiji AND in Hawaii, and now we can say that we are time travelers and for that March 25 may be my new favorite day- we will see in 2019 can live up to it, haha.

On both trips we got extremely lucky with weather, the week before we arrived in Fiji there was multiple cyclones and in Hawaii it was rainfall and mudslides for days before we got there. We were Hashtag Blessed.

The resort offers three different views to wake up to- the ocean, the city, or Diamond Head. We got a beach side suite during our stay so we got to wake up each morning to an ocean-view sunrise (our fave) but took full advantage of the other views at the rooftop, infinity pool.

Honolulu really is a dream- the beach, the mountains, and the city. With great food, the best breweries, huge waves, green mountains, crazy homeless people, too many tourists, and the best sights- we had a BUSY few days ahead of us. 

To do:

Rent a car, I mean JEEP because that screams adventure which screams Hawaii

Drive the Kamehameha Highway to North Shore

Hike Lanikai Pill Box Trail (pro tip: at sunset- less crowded, less heat)

Visit Pearl Harbor

Hike Diamond Head

Eat at OPAL Thai

Go to Pete’s Bar Neptune Beach and wake up in Hawaii the next day

Cliff jump at Waimea Bay

Stop at Sunset Beach for a midday nap

Watch surfers at Banzai Pipeline

Take a day trip to Kauai

Hike the off road path to the Tidepools at Makapu’u

Go snorkeling in Wainae

Not to do:

Eat an orange from the bar because you’re hungry

Purchase Opera tickets thinking they were Luke Bryan concert tickets

Wait to reserve Scooters for rent on Kauai

Eat North Shore tacos before hiking the PillBox trail
