What is there to do?

Ever wanted to visit the South Pacific? Now is your chance! Ever wanted to really indulge in the Hawaiian culture? Now really IS your chance!

The Polynesian Cultural Center is a great way for the whole family to be introduced to one of the most fascinating cultures we have on this amazing planet.

Want to visit Samoa in the morning? Perhaps Tonga in the afternoon followed by dinner in Fiji? Why not! There are six Pacific cultures to explore, each with authentic villages, entertainment, cultural activities, and of course lots of yummy foods for the kids to get stuck into! 

Kids can create coconut "milk" in Samoa, or get called up onto the stage to demonstrate their drumming skills in Tonga! 

Challenge family members to a fun canoe race, or even learn to cook the Samoan way using leaves, sticks and stones - do you think it will be difficult!? Spear throwing, fire making, and even weaving are all activities that the kids can really sink their cultural teeth into! 

Of course, you're in Hawaii so make sure you spend some time learning all about the Hawaiian culture too! Learn basic hula movements, and discover the deep commitment the Hawaiians have to their culture and traditions. 

Feeling hungry? Then what better way to fill up than at a proper Luau buffet! With a background of waterfalls and lush gardens, you can really immerse yourself in the traditional foods and entertainment of Polynesia. 

Just what you need before you spend the evening enjoying the dancing, songs, and even fire! It's a fascinating evening that will tell you a Pacific Isle tail of birth and death, love and family, triumph and even tragedy. For kids it will be an incredibly educational experience. 

The Polynesian Cultural Center also do a day tour out around the island, including Diamond Head, the beaches, and even plantations. A true Hawaiian experience!
