The Sunday Traveler accompanied friends to Hawaii who had never been there before. The luau is almost a must for the first timer to Hawaii, and although the Sunday Traveler has been to her share of luau over the years, one more surely wouldn’t hurt. On Oahu, the luau at Paradise Cove is held in a most beautiful setting along the west shore at sunset.
It was hard to concentrate on all the games and activities going on prior to the main show when this was happening off to the side.
There were old Hawaiian games to be played, spear throwing, and taking an outrigger ride
the evening activities begin to wind down in preparation for dinner and the show; dancers begin to head towards the stage.
Here’s a little dessert before dinner
The dance and music of the show is lovely, and one gets the sense of the richness of the Hawaiian culture
The luau is a good way to get a little bit of the flavor of Hawaii’s aloha.
One more segment is planned for you before saying aloha to Oahu; until then.
