Hawaii Kai has it all Mar 12, 2011
Hawaii Kai is part of Honolulu town, but located a few miles south, at the south tip of the island of Oahu. Its really a small town of its own. There is much to do and experience. Several hikes start from Hawaii Kai and go up ridges on the Koolau mountains to where you can overlook the other side of the mountain, Waimanalo and Kailua. Hanauma Bay is a great and safe snorkeling destination. Koko Head trail offers some good exercise rewarded with a great view once you reach the top. Inside the Koko Head crater is a Botanical garden (no fee) where you can hike and experience native and foreign plants. An amazing coastal stretch passes Hanauma Bay all the way to Waimanalo, with steep cliffs, a variety of smaller beaches and some great fishing spots. In the center of Hawaii Kai you'll find shops and some nice waterfornt restaurants and bars. There are diving trips and you can rent watercrafts. This is possibly the best area in Hawaii to waterski. The only think lacking in HK are clubs and late night bars, for that you'll need to go back to Honolulu. But with all the things to do down here, you'll probably be too tired.
