Hukilau Beach

This mellow, crescent-shaped beach is the perfect respite from the crowded beaches in town. The beach was once a site for community net fishing, but nowadays you’re more likely to catch sunbathers napping. We snuck a peek of a large monk seal catching a few Zs at the water’s edge. Off Kamehameha Highway after Foodland heading north.








  Hukilau Cafe

This hidden local favorite was Sam Choy’s first restaurant and is now owned by a relative. The café’s ono breakfast selection has ’em lining up out the door. The super-thick sweetbread French toast is famous with good reason, while the “Hungry Hawaiian” plate of three eggs and your choice of two breakfast meats (ham, spam, bacon, pork links or Portuguese sausage) served with rice or home fried potatoes and toast or pancakes will break your diet and put a smile on your face at the same time—all for $6.95. Plus, the staff couldn’t be nicer. 55-662 Wahinepee St., 293-8616.
