    May 15 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Da wir auf O'ahu kein Auto haben, machen wir auch heute eine Tour unseres Hostels mit. Nach einem kurzen Stopp bei einer weiteren Macadamia-Farm geht es an die Nordküste O'ahus. Zuerst bringt der Fahrer uns noch zu einem Lookout an dem eine alte hawaiianische Tempelanlage bzw. deren Überreste stehen und von welcher man den Waimea Beach, einen der bekanntesten Strände der Nordküste, sehen kann. Wie wir erfahren, wurde dieser Strand künstlich aufgeschüttet 🤔.

    Wieder unten angekommen setzt uns der Fahrer an einem von drei möglichen Spots ab, Sunset Beach, Sharks Cove (hier gibt es eine Menge lokale Foodtrucks) oder Waimea Beach. Wir entscheiden uns für den Sunset Beach, da wir von hier 2 Meilen den Strand entlang zum Sharks Cove gehen und auf dem Weg einen weltweit berühmten Surfspot sehen können. Außerdem haben wir uns ein Mittag an den Foodtrucks dann richtig verdient. Nach unseren Erfahrungen bisher wundert es uns gar nicht mehr, dass wir die Einzigen sind die sich für den Strandspaziergang entschieden haben und alle anderen direkt bei den Foodtrucks ausgestiegen sind 🤷🏻‍♀️.

    Leider können wir den Surfspot heute nur erahnen, da es so gut wie keine Wellen gibt 🙈. Aber die world famous Knoblauch-Shrimps und die Poke Bowl haben wir uns trotzdem verdient 🙂. Gut gestärkt gehen wir weiter zum Waimea Beach wo wir uns noch etwas an den Strand legen und den letzten Strandurlaub für die nächsten Wochen genießen.

    Auf dem Rückweg halten wir noch bei der weltweit ersten Dole Ananasplantage (die Ananas ist hier natürlich unverschämt teuer) und sehen unsere ersten Ananaspflanzen und davon auch noch unglaublich viele verschiedene Sorten 🍍.

    O'ahu trip

    May 12, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    I did a minibus tour around O'ahu (this island) today. The stops at retail outlets were too long for me, but I did get to see the most beautiful and dramatic scenery, and once we were out of Honolulu/Waikiki the only busy places were a food stop, a macadamia nut producer (and shop), the Dole (pineapple) plantation and a small mall (icecream stop). So all-in-all a good day 😃Read more

    Haleiwa, United States

    April 14, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Today we picked up our hire car and headed up to Hawaii's beautiful North Shore. We headed off early and took the H2 Highway through the middle of the island and after only about 40 minutes, had arrived in this beautiful part of the world.

    We were on a mission to visit O'ahu's best snorkeling spots and opted to go straight to Kuilima Cove near Turtle Bay Resort first. This was a great spot for families and those who are beginners. After an hour or so here we headed back past the Banzai Pipeline to the next stop on the snorkeling express, Shark Cove.

    Shark Cove is beautiful, with crystal clear turquoise water, abundant fish life and even turtles! Paul spent a good hour or so here exploring the waters whilst I checked out the rockpools that abounded with sea life. This was one of Pauly's top snorkeling picks on O'ahu!

    Our next stop was Giovanni's Shrimp Truck for a well deserved plate of Scampi & a tropical smoothie each. Yum! After this, we headed back to Waikiki via the beautiful eastern side (Windward) of the island; a magical drive filled with picturesque bays and towering cliff faces.

    Arriving back at our hotel at around 4pm, we were eagerly anticipating our 6pm dinner reservation at the in-house restaurant, Morimoto's. This restaurant is a signature restaurant owned and operated by Iron Chef, Masaharu Morimoto - our experience did not disappoint!

    For dinner we opted for the 8 course Omakase (degustation) menu as both of us were not skilled in the fine art of Japanese cuisine 😀. At the end of this exquisite, almost 3 hour experience, we both had full belly's and were blown away by the incredible presentation and tastes of each dish. All we could say was, Wow! One of the many highlights added to our trip so far.

    The North Shore

    March 26, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    The 3rd highlight of the day was Sunset Beach on the North Shore, about another 45 minutes up the coastal highway past all the fresh shrimp trucks. Sunset Beach is one of 3 surfing meccas on the North Shore where professional competitions are held. The weather forecast predicted 20 foot swells with the warning that only pro surfers should venture out. Watching the surfers in these ferocious waves is one of my favourite Hawaiian activities. I am always awestruck at their skill and willingness to challenge these potentially life-threatening waves. Several guys on jet skis were in the water for rescue and to take the surfer back out. The beach was crowded with onlookers. We had just arrived and John asked, "When are we leaving?". Ugh....who invited this guy?!!Read more

    Pipeline, North shore, oahu

    March 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    This is my favorite part of Oahu. It has a more remote vibe and the scenery is amazing. There are some small towns along the way that have some sweet shops and great food stops.

    We hung out at sunset beach and watched the surfers for a while. The waves were massive and it was a treat watching experts shred some waves.

    Along the right side of the beach was a large monk seal sleeping in the sand. The Hawaiian monk seal is one of two remaining monk seals (the other being the Mediterranean monk seal) and they are endangered.
