GenGirl Around The World: Hawaii

Our office #gengirl Aly Lee just came back from a trip to Hawaii and we’re quite jealous. It’s hard to believe a little piece of paradise is so close.

For your time in paradise, Aly recommends:

Waikiki

  • Helena’s Hawaiin Food – Hawaiian comfort food at its best.
  • Ono Seafood (not to be confused with ONO Hawaiian Foods) – BEST poke. Hands down.
  • Marukame Udon – Homemade udon noodles served cafeteria style at a very affordable price.
  • Leonard’s Bakery – Serves masalada (Portuguese fried donuts). You can get them as is or crème filled. Aly recommends the later.
  • Liliha Bakery – Known for their cream puffs and bread rolls.
  • Manoa Falls – An easy hike that ends at a waterfall.
  • Aihualama Trail – Located at the end of Manoa Falls. The landscape will then change into a bamboo forest.

North Shore

  • Giovann’s Shrimp Truck – Garlic butter shrimp overload.
  • Aloha General Store – Shaved ice. ‘Nough said.
  • Waimea Bay – Perfect place for cliff jumping.

Lanikai Beach

  • Perfect for avoiding the crowds at Waikiki beach. Featuring clear blue and calm waters, it’s a great place to go snorkeling or kayaking.
  • Pill Box Hike – Challenging, but worth it for the 360 view of the island.
