👍👍 We visited Surf Bar twice on our visit to Oahu! Chuck and Elise were such kind people. They took great care of us, told us local recommendations, and shared their lives with us.

Waterfront Memorial
Memorial park
👍👍 This is a must visit. It's a good idea to make a reservation for the trip out to the memorial in advance of your visit as standby can mean a long wait. The Bowfin is also definitely worth a visit.

Round Top Forest Reserve
Nature preserve
👍 Great place for sightseeing. High thief area as stated on the signs. Surveillance does not help. The lookout is some 250ft from the parking lot, but it does not stop car break-ins. Don't leave anything in the car, that can look attractive.
