After being picked up from your Waikiki hotel around 7.30am, set off on the Circle Island Drive. Start by heading east, driving past the grand beachside villas of Kahala, then stopping to admire the natural wonders of Diamond Head and enjoy spectacular views over Hanauma Bay. Keep your camera to hand as you wind up into the Koʻolau Mountains, stopping to gaze out over the Hawaiian Islands from the Nuʻuanu Pali Lookout and visit Byodo-In Temple.
Continue to the North Shore, where you’ll have chance to explore seafront towns such as Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach, enjoy sweeping views of Waimea Bay, and watch the surfers taking to the waves. Visit the beautiful Waimea Falls, then make a final stop at the Dole Plantation, where you can stroll through the pineapple plantation maze and perhaps sample some tasty frozen pineapple DoleWhip® (own expense).
After a full day taking in the island’s highlights, return to Waikiki, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
