A breathtaking drive past Hanauma Bay will take you to East Honolulu and to one of nature’s stunning creations. Halona Blowhole is a lava rock formation and sea cave scenic lookout located along Oahu majestic southeast shoreline. When the waves roll-in just right a spout of water will burst from the ocean and up through the rocks into a jet stream. This popular lookout is also a wonderful place to go whale watching in the winter and it also overlooks a tiny, yet famous beach. Halona Cove, also known as ‘Here to Eternity Beach’, which hosted a very well-known kiss between Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in the classic 1953 film. The beach is located down and to the right side of the lookout.
Every Friday night, the Hilton Hawaiian Village, hosts a spectacular fireworks show fronting the hotel along Waikiki Beach and near the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon. Visitors and locals alike will gather along the beach and shore to take in the sights and sounds of this colorful presentation. Grab your spot on the sand or nearby early, as the area fills quickly and by 7:45 p.m. the show begins.

- Diamond Head Beach Lookout: 200,000 years ago, a volcanic eruption solidified into a towering outcropping above Honolulu. This beautiful lookout stands at the base of Diamond Head and provides views of Molokai on clear days.
- Secret Beach at Sherwood Forest: The official name is Waimanalo Bay, but “Secret Beach” fits the bill—this pristine shoreline is not often visited by tourists, and the ironwood trees that surround it are referred to as Sherwood Forest. Although the bus can’t stop here, it will take a beautiful drive through so you can see where the forest meets the ocean.

But don’t stop there… Suit up with the full-face, super-premium snorkel gear provided by Aloha Circle Island, and claim your chance to swim with these creatures in their natural habitat… Under the Sea.

- The Halona Blowhole: When once-molten rock meets the churning surf, the Halona Blowhole erupts a spray of water up to 30 feet high. Nearby, the Halona Beach Cove offers a romantic backdrop seen in the 1953 film _From Here to Eternity.
