Diamond Head Luau

Located at the base of Diamond Head on the grassy oceanfront lawn at the Waikiki Aquarium, this is Waikiki's newest luau! What makes this luau truly special is that once you arrive, you first have the chance to see the aquarium exhibits and learn about a variety of Hawaii's marine life (aquarium admission is included).

Outside on the beachfront lawn, you can take part in island arts & crafts, such as making a Hawaiian flower lei or a head band, get a Polynesian tattoo (no worries, it can be washed off), or participate in a hula lesson.

The activities are followed by a Farm to Fork dinner experience. Farm to Fork catering is all about utilizing the wide variety of local foods like grass-fed beef, fresh line-caught fish and organic fruits and veggies. Dishes range from traditional to contemporary fusion cuisine inspired by the practices of the Native Hawaiian people. After dinner, sit back and enjoy traditional songs and dances of Hawaii and other Polynesian island nations.

Another highlight of the evening is the Polynesian show following dinner, featuring songs and dances of Hawaii and other Polynesian island nations. Make your selection from the following two Diamond Head Luau packages
