Kahuku is a census-designated place (CDP) in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu, County of Honolulu, Hawaii, United States. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Scuba & Snorkeling and North Shore. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kahuku: Ka'ena Point State Park (in Waianae) and Haleiwa (Laniakea Beach & Skydiving). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Sharks Cove, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sunset Beach Park, admire the verdant scenery at Waimea Valley, and get into the urban bustle at Polynesian Cultural Center.

To see ratings, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Kahuku trip site .

Sydney, Australia to Kahuku is an approximately 15-hour combination of flight and car.

Traveling from Sydney in September, expect Kahuku to be a bit warmer, temps between 33°C and 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Honolulu.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Photography Tours and Koko Crater Railway Trail. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more), Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Kapolei) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Waikiki Beach, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
