Zip lining

Second to last day we decided to partake in some Zip Lining. Located just a few miles north of us is Climb Works @ Keana Farm, within which the owner has turned the airspace above, into a Zip Lining experience. We had so much fun. There are 8 of the highest and longest zip lines we … Continue reading Zip lining

Kawela Bay Beach Park

Not to far from where we are staying is a great little beach that you get to via a small forest of Banyan trees. Not just any trees  though. These Banyan trees have seen Johnny Depp dressed up as a pirate and some other people from a show that got lost, called, err, Lost.

Food Trucks

Having completed little research before landing on Hawaii, I had no idea about the standard of food being pumped out of the food trucks here. North Shore is especially loaded with food trucks, and they all serve a main menu theme (Mexican, Shrimp etc.) with quite a few more dishes on offer than we expected … Continue reading Food Trucks

Ad Hoc Dentistry

Whilst we were on the Maili side of the island, one of my dental bridges came loose as a tooth snapped off the root. It wasn’t painful (already root canalled) at all, just annoying. When we got to a dentist, it was a bit of a chin scratcher, followed up with “we need to do … Continue reading Ad Hoc Dentistry

North Shore

The accommodation was lower key, but still had a great feel to it and suited the surroundings very well, beachy. From … Continue reading North Shore

Waimea Falls

A short trip from Lanikai Beach is Waimea Falls. Set in a beautiful valley in North Shore, Waimea is a botanical garden walk followed up with a refreshing waterfall and natural lagoon within which you can swim.      

Laniakea Beach – Turtles

a trip to Turtle beach just up on the other end of the island near northshore. Hooray we saw some turtles cruising around the shoreline looking for a place to land and bask in the glorious sunshine. There were quite a lot of instagram junkies hanging out, but fortunately whenever they got to close, one … Continue reading Laniakea Beach – Turtles

Pearl Harbour

Super hot day on this wonderful island, so suncream up people! We got a chance to visit Pearl Harbour today, and visit the other side of the Hiroshima story. As you'd imagine lots of military presence in the area and lots of military hardware on display. We took a tour around the Bowfin. Launched a … Continue reading Pearl Harbour
