Toa Luau brings you to the beautiful North Shore country side of Oahu and the Native Hawaiian cultural site of Waimea Valley. Nestled closely between two cliffs and across the road from the world famous surfing beach Waimea Bay lies the protected valley of Waimea where traditionalists of Hawaiian culture held onto their way of life in a rapidly changing world.

Experience unique Polynesian cultural activities, a traditional feast, botanical gardens and an optional hike and swim at a waterfall!

Difference between 12:30pm and 5pm luau?
No difference. Everything is the same except for the start times. Both luaus are equally entertaining and culturally immersive.

Here are some tips for you to consider about the 12:30 pm luau: It finishes earlier in the evening at 3:30 pm, making it a better option for families with young children, and for those who are driving from Waikiki. If you’re planning on catching the Public bus or Uber, 12:30 pm would be a better option for you since it’s a challenge to find transportation on the Northshore after 7pm. Another factor you might overlook until you get to Hawaii is the time difference. 4pm Hawaiian time is equivalent to 7pm or 10pm your local time depending on where you are visiting from. ​
