Grocery or Supermarket
“Located in the deli section of a local Hawaiian chain of grocery stores, Foodland boasts some of the best poke (raw marinated seafood) the island has to offer. Don't let this grocery chain fool you, real locals know this poke is legit. My favorite is the mussel poke because the marinade is full of umami, budget friendly and sustainable. ”

Nature
“You'll see a lot of locals on this beach and not many tourists. It's also a great spot to learn how to surf. It may not be the post card perfect Hawaiian beach with white sands and clear water but it is a great beach for picnics, barbeque, get-togethers and parties or spend an afternoon with family and friends. White Plains is also frequently visited by monk seals that come to snooze and rest. The parking lot gets very busy during the weekend and there will be people surfing from sunrise to sunset. There's a lifeguard on duty during their hours of operation. The restrooms are clean with basic toiletries. ”

Military Base
“If you're a history person, this is pretty incredible. My husbands father was laying on the beach in Waikiki and saw Japanese pilots flying so low he could see their faces. They were getting bombed and the island was forever changed. I'd recommend going, you won't forget it.”
