Life in Sahar by Makani Adric
Tell us a little bit about you: I’m Makani, I live on the North Shore of Oahu. I love going to the beach, surfing, and training Jiujitsu. Things I also enjoy are traveling, meeting new people, and eating at new places.
Destination: North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii
Best places to hit the beach: My favorite spots are Pipeline, Sunset, Haleiwa, and a few other secret spots on the north shore.
Best places to hit the pool: Favorite pool on the north shore is at turtle bay. A few other good ones in Honolulu are the Sheraton at Waikiki beach, Alohilani, the prince resort, and the modern Honolulu.
Nice dinner: There are so many good places to eat around the island. I personally like leileis at turtle bay. Another one is Dukes in Waikiki. Roy Yamaguchi also has a great chain of restaurants located through out the islands that has great taste.
Cocktail bar: Dukes in front of Waikiki beach and Haleiwa Joes in the North Shore. Both places have great appetizers, cocktails, and good views.
Traditional cuisine and where to get the best: Hawaii has a lot of mixed variety’s of food. One spot a lot of locals go to is Pupukea Grill across from sharks cove beach. Traditional Hawaiian food I LOVE. It consists of Kalua pork, Laulau, lomi salmon, poi, squid luau, chicken long rice, and sweet potato. If you go to any traditional Hawaiian celebration you will most likely have this food. The best place to get this type of food is at Waiahole Poi Factory on the East side of Oahu.
Nice hotel: A nice hotel on Oahu is the Kahala Hotel. It’s on the other end of town so away from the busy lifestyle in Waikiki, but it’s also close enough to great restaurants, amazing beaches, and nightlife!!
