The nine best Oahu luaus
“What is the best luau on Oahu?” As a Hawaii Travel Agent, I get this question a lot. Oahu is the most popular island in Hawaii for tourism, and a luau is a bucket-list Hawaii item for almost everyone. It makes sense that you’d want to figure out the best Oahu luau before you go.
I’m also asked if you should book a luau in advance, and the answer is absolutely yes. Luaus on Oahu (or any other island) are very popular, and the best ones do sell out. I always recommend booking your luau at least a month out if you can.
If you’re in the beginning stages of planning your vacation, make sure to contact me if you would like some help.
