UNDERRATED Often overshadowed by glamorous neighbors,


KAENA POINT, on the island’s western tip, is only accessible via a rocky hike from the south side or Leeward Coast side at Kaena Beach State Park. The dramatic lava shoreline and vast panoramas of the Pacifi c make the challenging hike well worth the effort. Doubling as a nature preserve, the Point is home to a variety of plant and animal life including nesting albatross in the winter.


Visit the North Shore for simplicity and complete relaxation; no to-do lists allowed on the majestic stretch of coastline. Best known as a world-class surfi ng spot, the winter months bring tubular waves to the BANZAI PIPELINE that may reach 20 feet or more. While there is no town or major resort there are plenty of laid-back food options including shrimp and Thai food trucks.


CORAL CREEK GC may not be on the ocean, but water is every- where, dotting 13 holes on this inventive layout built around coral rock formations and reefs. Prevailing 15-20 mph winds make for plenty of challenges on the Robin Nelson design, one of Oahu’s newest courses. The 10th and 18th holes, situated on the same pristine blue lake, are especially fun, featuring a waterfall and a peninsula green on the fi nal hole.
