Hawaii Macadamia Nut Farm

The mac nut are originally from Queensland in Australia. It is a staple food for local aborigines because it is rich in nutrition. Due to its wide range of uses such as excellent effect on health and beauty, its popularity has also risen.

China Man’s Hat

Mokolii, also known among locals as Chinaman’s Hat (view panorama) because of its shape, is a popular spot for taking pictures on Oahu’s windward coast. The small island is located at the north end of Kaneohe Bay, offshore of Kualoa Regional Beach Park. Mokolii means “little lizard” in Hawaiian. It’s also called Chinaman’s Hat because of its cone shape, which resembles the peasant’s hat worn in rural China.

Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach Oahu is another Best of Oahu highlight and a beautiful surfing mecca not to be missed after making your rounds at Waimea Bay and the Banzai Pipeline! It’s a great Oahu Beach to watch big-wave surfers in action during the wintertime.

Waimea Bay

Located on the legendary North Shore, Waimea Bay was an influential surf spot during the dawn of big wave surfing in the 1950s. Adventurous surfers began to challenge the powerful winter waves of Waimea (as well as Makaha Beach on the west side) giving birth to the big wave-riding phenomenon.

Lunch Time (12:00-13:00)

The lunch will not be included.

Laniakea [Honu] Beach

Laniakea Beach on Oahu's North Shore is also known as Turtle Beach. The main attraction here is the green sea turtles who often times can be seen on the beach basking in the sun. On other Oahu beaches, you're lucky if you can spot one of these amazing animals in the ocean, sticking her head out of the water.

Haleiwa Town

The charming Haleiwa, about a one-hour drive from Waikiki. More than the laid-back surf town it seems, Haleiwa is filled with local style and country ambiance, as well as cool surf shops and boutiques, charming art galleries and understated restaurants housed in plantation-era buildings. Rich with island history, Haleiwa is now the social and artistic hub of the North Shore.

Dole Plantation

Originally operated as a fruit stand beginning in 1950, Dole Plantation opened to the public as Hawaii’s “Pineapple Experience” in 1989. Today, Dole Plantation is one of Oahu’s most popular visitor attractions and welcomes more than one million visitors a year. Dole Plantation provides enjoyable activities for the entire family, including the Pineapple Express Train Tour, the Plantation Garden Tour, and the Pineapple Garden Maze.

 After the one day tour finished, the tour guide will send you back to conference hotel.
