There’s so much to do when visiting Oahu, Hawaii that there’s never enough time to do it all so let’s take a drive from the east side of Honolulu all the way up to Turtle Bay and stop at the best sight seeing places on our way there. There’s a lot more then just 10 spots to see but here’s the top 10 on my list.
Now let’s head on over to the Byodo In Temple. It’s only a few dollars to get in and it’s a quick walk around the temple. Gorgeous mountain sites plus lots to learn. It’s a replicated temple of the real Byodo In Temple. Don’t forget to ring the bell. Read more about the Byodo Temple here.
We have three more spots to stop by at. Next up is Chinaman’s Hat and Laie Point. Chinaman’s Hat is this little island that you will see to your right that, well, looks just like a Chinaman’s hat. Can’t miss it. It’s located on a beautiful beach park and gorgeous views all around. It’s surrounded by mountains and beach. Great to go for a quick swim or just to look around and enjoy a relaxing afternoon.Let’s head on north to Laie Point now. You will know this spot as the famous Forgetting Sarah Marshall cliff jump where Peter failed to jump off the cliff and just fell. And not to forget to mention their first kiss. This is a popular spot to, not just cliff jump, but to go fishing as well. If walking through here with little kids please be careful as it is rocky and there’s open water all around the point but don’t let this scare you. It’s absolutely breath taking and you can’t miss it for the world.
And last but not least, Turtle Bay. Also known as the hotel where they were all staying at in the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. This is more considered to be North Shore but it’s at a spot on the island that I see it as either/or or even both. I like coming here to see the sunsets or just to drive by. It’s a really pretty spot. Other then that this would be my ending point for the East side. Stay tuned for our upcoming post on North Shore where you will find some of the most stunning beaches and best surf spots on Oahu.**Don’t forget to subscribe to stay caught up on our following posts, giveaways, our jewelry shop, and more..**
