Oahu Luau

Double Lines

Sunset is the perfect time for a traditional Hawaiian luau on the shores of Oahu. Dine on kalua pig cooked in an imu (earth oven), haupia (coconut pudding) and poi (Hawaiian taro starch). Then settle down under the stars while you listen to live music and watch skilled performances of the hula. Some luau showcase dances from across Polynesia as well, like the frenetic Tahitian dance and the thrilling Samoan fire-knife dance.

There are many luau venues throughout Oahu including the Alii Luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center on the North Shore, the Paradise Cove Luau in the Ko Olina area of Leeward Oahu, and the Royal Luau at The Royal Hawaiian, one of many luau events in Waikiki. No first-time visit to Oahu is complete without experiencing a Hawaiian luau.
