EXCELLENT. Authentic Hawaiian style poke. Get Ahi Limu poke, or spicy salmon poke, Ahi shoyu is great too. A plate lunch such as the Furikake ahi is winner. This place serves local plate lunch and a variety of locally sourced poke. Poke is raw fish cubed with rock salt, onions and comes in various ways. It's the locals choice after the beach!

The only place on the island where you can get up close and personal with our local marine fishes and wild life in their natural habitat. Hanauma Bay is a marine preserve beach and the fish know it too! This is where you can see fish that would otherwise be targeted by spearfishermen and fishermen alike swimming right next to you. Turtles also frequent this beach.

This beach is a close kept secret among locals. Definetly alot less crowded and is always full with TURTLES! Skip Lani's down the road (full with tour buses, no parking, and crowds) come down the private road and park at the dirt lot at the end. Take the beach access and go to the left a bit for a shallow area where turtles congregate. See that thin green seaweed that grows on the rocks by the water? Scrape and pick some off to feed the turtles a snack!

Looking for a quiet, non crowded beach along the east side of the island? Park at the end of Paiko drive. Drive slow, and take the public beach access on the right when coming in. Be careful not to go down the private road at the end. This beach is secluded and you can find a private spot to relax. Great beach for children and small kids since there is no wave activity.
