Diamond Head is one of the most popular tourist attractions located on the beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii. It is a volcanic tuff cone located next to Waikiki known to the locals as Leahi. Its Hawaiian name is most likely derived from its shape, which resembles a tuna’s dorsal fin. But apart from its natural beauty, the Diamond Head is also known for being the gathering place for when Amelia Earhart made her first solo aviation from Hawaii to North America. 

 

There are several ways to witness the beauty of this place, and one is by booking an Oahu tour with Go Tours Hawaii. Our team can bring you to the Diamond Head Amelia Earhart Lookout with one of our Hidden Gems of Oahu tours to Waimea Botanical Garden or Byodo-In Temple.

When you are on vacation, having a taste of a place’s delicacy is one of the things you should never forget. The flavors and processes each destination uses to prepare its food are an excellent way to differentiate many cultures. In Hawaii, kalua is among the most commonly used cooking methods. 

 

Kalua is a traditional Hawaiian cooking method that utilizes an imu or an underground oven. This cooking process is used to prepare Kalua pig or turkey, which are typically served at luau feasts. 

 

Another food that you should try when you are in Hawaii is Poi. This dish is made from baked or steamed taro root. The taro is then pounded and mixed with water until it forms a thick delectable paste. Poi is usually served as a side dish, and you can eat it with Kalua pig.

 

Hawaii is truly a haven for foodies out there. All you have to do is look around, and you will find numerous local restaurants ready to serve you good food.

  • Explore and Remember Pearl Harbor
