No trip to Oahu is complete without a night out at a traditional luau. Luaus are a fantastic opportunity to learn more about Hawaiian culture and luau history in a fun night out. Here is a list of the best luaus on Oahu:
In order to fully appreciate a Luau, it’s important to know what you’re getting yourself into before arriving at the event. For those of you who have never been to one, a Luau is an ancient Hawaiian way of celebrating and honoring people. It involves feasting on foods such as Kalua Pig, Lomi Salmon (Salmon Pudding), Poi (Taro Root Pudding), Breadfruit, and Haupia. This is usually accompanied by the performance of ancient Hawaiian dances including the Hula Dance, which can be very exciting.
However, it’s important to note that not all Luaus are just an evening event, but rather a day-long celebration that can start early in the morning.
In addition, Luaus on Oahu can be a bit pricy costing you anywhere from $50 to $100+ per person. But, the expense is well worth the experience.
