DIAMOND HEAD CRATER
The iconic Diamond Head one of the most recognizable volcanic cones in the world. From your vantage point at Black Point Lookout, gaze out towards the beautiful Pacific reef while the southern edge of Diamond Head towers over you.
HANAUMA BAY LOOKOUT
Once a recreational area of Hawaiian nobility, Hanauma Bay Lookout provides a breathtaking view of this famous 2,000 foot white sand beach and strikingly beautiful blue sheltered cove.
From the humble beginnings of a small fruit stand, James Dole grew a pineapple empire from the verdant fields of central Oahu. You can enjoy some of the fruits of his labor with your own cup of a Dole Whip®, a true island favorite.
MAKAPU'U LOOKOUT & LIGHTHOUSE
Built in 1909, the Makapu’u Lighthouse overlooks the stunning views of Makapuu Beach, Rabbit Island, and the dramatic windward coastline.
Pali lookout is the the site of the Battle of Nuuanu. Here in 1795, King Kamehameha united Oahu under his rule. Perched over 1000 feet above Oahu, it offers amazing views atop sheer cliffs.
NORTH SHORE BEACHES
Stretching for more than 7 miles, the winter waves of the north shore provide the perfect conditions for the world’s most prestigious surf competitions. See for yourself where legends are made.

“The Ambassador Circle is the way to go. The canoe pageant, and most of the villages are very educational and enjoyable. The move is beautiful. The dinner food and show is also very good. However the evening show was spectacular—worth the entire price.”
