While visiting Hawaii, there is one thing that you HAVE to do: attend an authentic Hawaiian Luau. Not only are Luaus a load of fun and great for all ages, they’re the official Hawaiian party. Luaus date back to the days of ancient Hawaii, and are used to celebrate just about anything, including birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries, plus anything else that is worthy of a celebration. Though the settings have changed, and new food has been introduced throughout the years, the spirit is still the same, and during your trip to Oahu, an authentic luau is in order.
Oahu is the most visited of the Hawaiian Islands, and features some of the top luaus in Hawaii. These celebrations take place all over the island, and each has its own unique charm and its own brand of fun. From the incredible buffet, the great games that date back to ancient Hawaii, and the amazing entertainment, an evening at a luau will easily be one of your favorites. With so many options to choose from, knowing a bit about each will be a big help.
There are 8 luaus on Oahu to choose from, and we’re confident that no matter which you choose, you will have an amazing time. From the heavenly North Shore to one of the oldest hotels in Hawaii, you can find a luau at just about any location.
