Diamond Head (definitely in the morning), North Shore, Pearl Harbor, the beach at Waikiki, do a luau, other than that just relax!

Definitely recommend visiting the Polynesian cultural center, diamond head, taking a lava tour! I went about 15 years ago (middle school) and loved it! We also visited a pineapple farm which was cool!

like

Stairmaster to Hell (Koko Crater Railway Trail), Hanauma Bay, Ka’eina State Park (4-wheel drive), Byodo-In Temple, Matsumoto Shaved Ice, Shrimp (or other food) trucks in north shore, Turtle Beach, Iolani Palace (only royal palace in US) are some places to start with

like

For pineapple farm, there’s Dole plantation and one across from it

Enjoy OP! However not sure why you mentioned your nationality and how that would change the responses. What would you guys recommend a person from London to do? 😛

Kokohead is beautiful but can get hot, so make sure you go in the morning! It’s only about 45 min to go up and back down, but I used to hang out at the top and enjoy the breeze and the view. Another great and short hike nearish Waikiki is makapuu light tower- you can explore the tide pools if you’re feeling adventurous. As for shrimp trucks in north shore, Mackys is a bit more touristy than Giovanni’s but they’re both so good. Restaurants: Alan wongs for some upscale Hawaiian food, try poke/plate lunches/shave ice (there used to be a small place by ala Moana mall that has the BEST strawberry milk flavored syrup that I used to pair with green tea. Also marukame udon in Waikiki is excellent. I miss Hawaii so much - I used to live there growing up! Have the best time and be wary of traffic!!

Thanks so much everyone! Super useful. Haha SC2 I mentioned my nationality because I guess I want to imply that I'm not from the US and therefore less likely to have travelled to Hawaii and so I need all the info I can get.. also cause Australians are fun and I want fun recommendations ;)

7 days is a long time. Try to go to another island. Kauai or Maui. You won't regret.

nice!

Pu’u O Mauka Heiau state monument as well

Koko Head hike was one of the hardest I have done. If you're up for a challenge then do it for sure. It was used by the Americans in WWII. Also Pearl Harbor is a must and the USS Missouri is cool to tour as well

Bestest adventure things in big island: 1. Snorkeling with manta rays (bioluminescence feeding) 2. Active Volcano watching at twilight ($200pp but worth the trip at 2am to go see an active volcano less than a few meters apart on a boat)

If only on Oahu, please go to the North shore.

Take a kayak tour out to the mokes (currently on Groupon for $89), find the mermaid caves, hike down to the tide pools at makapu’u — just went last week and those were my 3 favorite activities!

Road to Hana in Maui and seeing live volcano in the big island ! Must see!

I am taking another sick day this coming Monday. It's necessary for both my physical and mental health, which are severely compromised due to the stress of this insane school year (and the last one, and the spring before that -- I think this is cumulative with COVID, the political situation, etc.). I have never taken this many sick days during ANY school year in my 20+ years of teaching. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is anyone else having anxiety about taking so many days off?

Soo how are we feeling about first generation Africans being the star panelists for several of these corporate Juneteenth panels? Before anyone starts accusing me of wanting to drive division, it just strikes me as being as an inappropriate as asking me, an African-American descendant of slaves to star on a panel about life in Africa just because I’ve visited a couple times (which I have). So, I’m seriously trying to make sense of it

Got in a spat with my SO. He didn’t want to wake up to drop me to the airport at 330am and said it was unreasonable that I was asking that of him. He helped arrange a taxi service (we’re on vacation). I am still pretty miffed that he thinks he’s in the right to avoid being inconvenienced. I woulda woken up and taken him and it’s not about saving dollars. Sometimes you show love by being willing to be inconvenienced. F here fwiw
