Where: Oahu, Hawaii
When: March 2017
Stayed: Moana Surfrider
We were ecstatic to get a corner room facing the ocean, with the sound of the waves lulling us to sleep at night. Moana Surfrider is a beautiful hotel, with a big pool and direct access to Waikiki beach. They also have an open-air restaurant called the Veranda, where we had the most scrumptious and filling breakfast buffet. Normally, I am all about the savory, but I could not get enough of the french toast on this trip!
We started our first day with sunrise yoga on the beach. (In case you haven’t seen her website, Em is an all-star yogi)!
We then headed straight to breakfast at Haleiwa Bowls, plopping down at Pipeline to watch the surfers do their thing. Our next stop was Shark’s Cove, where we swam about, and then grabbed lunch across the street. Post Shark’s Cove, we made our way to Hale’iwa center for Matusomoto Shave Ice. If we had another day on Oahu, we would have headed even further north towards Turtle Bay and Laie, taking the scenic road back – but it’s always nice saving something for next time. And while we were too full to sample the shrimp, both Macky’s and Giovanni’s come highly recommended!
Until next time, Oahu!
