Overview

The Polynesian Cultural Center, voted the #1 attraction in Hawaii by USA Today, is located along the famous North Shore of Oahu. Explore 42 acres of tropical splendor featuring 6 authentic villages representing the island cultures of Hawaii, Fiji, Aotearoa (New Zealand), Samoa, Tahiti, and Tonga. Mingle with Pacific islanders as they share the majesty of their culture through music, dance and traditional hands-on activities. Our most popular dining option is the award-winning Ali’i Luau. This royal feast blends a delicious array of island and mainland dishes with the excitement of authentic island entertainment from across Polynesia. Finish your adventure though the power of “Ha: Breath of Life,” an action-packed evening show. Ignited by fire, song and dance featuring over 100 Polynesian performers, this story of passion will make this day a truly unforgettable experience. The Polynesian Cultural Center: all of Polynesia in one exciting place.

We spent about 6 hours here. Unfortunately they don't open until noon. The first half hour was wasted by our bus driver upgrading people and booking their lunches. So we did not get around to all the villages. We really enjoyed what we did see.

We visited with our two teenagers, who both loved the experience. We purchased the Ambassador package, which was worth it - with the lesser package you have to eat at 4:30, which is too early for us. Also, we had a guide with the Ambassador...More
