Kahuku is a census-designated place (CDP) in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu, County of Honolulu, Hawaii, United States. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Banzai Pipeline. Relax by the water at Sharks Cove and Turtle Bay Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Horseback Riding Tours (in Waialua), Waianae (Ka'ena Point State Park & Fishing Charters & Tours) and Haleiwa (Pua`ena Point Beach Park, Stand-Up Paddleboarding, & more). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Sunset Beach Park, experience rural life at Kahuku Farms, explore the landscape on two wheels at Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path, and explore the activities along Waimea Bay.

Honolulu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step out of the city life by going to Lanikai Beach and Kailua Beach Park. You'll get in some beach time at Waimanalo Beach and Ala Moana Beach Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Bellows Field Beach Park (in Waimanalo), Kapolei (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Ko Olina Lagoons) and Kailua (Kayaking & Canoeing & Lanikai Pillboxes). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

To see traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip itinerary planner.

Traveling by car from Kahuku to Honolulu takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in August, and nighttime lows around 75°F. On the 30th (Fri), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
