Koko Crator Trail Hike

Take the 1,408 railroad ties up to the summit Pu'u Mai. The hike in the heat can be tiring but the reward is at the top of Koko Crater which provides breathtaking views of eastern Oahu and the Pacific. Wear sturdy shoes and sunscreen and bring water! There are a few places you can hang out at the top and take in the spectacular view. From 1,208 feet, you have unobstructed 360-degree views of Diamond Head, bright blue waters of Hanauma Bay, Makapu'u Head and Hawaii Hai.
Koko Crater Trail is located in Koko Head Regional Park at 423 Kaumakani Street, Honolulu, Hawaii. Parking is free.

Sandy Beach Park

Good spot for surfing, boogie boarding, or chilling in the sand while your boyfriend surfs or boogie boards. Lots of parking available.
8801 Kalanianaole Hwy, Honolulu

Chuns Reef Beach

This quiet beach is accessible by a tiny opening between the crush of houses lining the Kam Highway from Haleiwa to Sunset Beach. Explore the rock pools left of the short. The waves break thick and to the right, great for longboarding it dumps you into a nice deep channel. This reef is a great place to turtle watch. Walk along the shore, look closely and carefully and you will most likely find huge turtles chilling close to the shore. Kaman Hwy, Haleiwa.

Bills Sydney

Stoked to find an Australian favourite in Hawaii. Bills offers both a casual downstairs beach bar & cafe, upstairs dining restaurant. Both menus are inspired by local tropical produce and a fusion of Vietnamese, Japanese and indigenous cuisines. Breakfast lunch or dinner.
Plus the venue is really pretty.

Downbeat Diner
American style diner. Using locally sourced produce, offering a ton of vegan a vegetarian options, they can make anything on the menu vegan. Open late (not a lot is in Honolulu) it's got a great vibe plus it connects to a full service bar next door which has live music on 3-4 nights a week.
