Head 33 miles north from Downtown Honolulu, to a small town called Kahuku. Paradise? Just maybe. It starts out tantalizing you with its amazing beaches. Oh, don’t forget you are surrounded by world famous surf. But its the beauty that surrounds you, too.
Kahuku is home to the Turtle Bay Resort. Which is in turn home to two of Hawaii’s best golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer and George Fazio. Surf? Backdoor, Pipeline, Pupkea, Rocky Point, Sunset Beach and Waimea.
The Kamehameha Highway runs through town. Looking for a quick bite to eat? There are more than a few shrimp trucks along the highway to choose from. An old sugar mill has been converted into the Kahuka Mill Shopping Center. It’s worth a look if you like the touristy places. There should be a more than enough art galleries around town to keep you busy for a bit. If you are looking for outdoor activity start with the ocean for the beaches and surf. Looking for some different water experiences? Check out the rainforests and waterfalls.
