Travel + Leisure: "The best tuna poke on Oahu, says Ed Kenney, chef-owner of Town restaurant. Order a portion tossed with pickled mango, kimchi, boiled peanuts, and poi. More places to eat like a local: tandl.me/12ufz7c"
The Wall Street Journal: "The museum's outdoor cafe, which features a 75-year-old monkey-pod tree and the modern sculptures of Japanese ceramicist Jun Kaneko. Reservations are recommended and hours for lunch are short"
Christopher Michael: "Eat here & you'll never eat a pastry anywhere else. Dunkin or Krispy cant hold a candle to this place. The malasadas (Portuguese fried dough) were so warm, sweet & doughy! Melts in your mouth! A++++!!"
Jason H.: "Stay in the tower! -for privacy + to avoid screaming children on beach outside your window. Garden view + ocean view are both fantastic. Getting a lanai is worth it! Beautiful secluded Oahu location."
linh le: "Great for snorkeling!!! I don't think this beach is meant for people to spend the whole day here since it is full of reefs. I think there are plenty of safer beaches on the island for the family"
Michelle A.: "Bring some food and drinks, there are no vendors here. You have to watch a short video about reef behavior before you're allowed to enter. Great place for families and lovely place!"
Noel Clarke: "This was an awesome beach. They have a section where the warm clean sea water is only waist height for 60 yards into it. Seems to have decent surf and everything you need near by as well."
CP: "Very touristy but also a lot of fun. Great restaurants and bars. One of the liveliest places on Oahu. As a visitor this will probably be your main place to stay on the island."
Deb: "Make sure to arrive super early. The lines can be long!"
Hawaii.com: "While most people who go here will take the free tour, the packaged tours they offer are really worth it. You get to see more of the harbor and other memorials not accessible by the public."
