Diamond Head Luau invites you to a memorable evening of celebrating Hawaiian culture. Experience a traditional Hawaiian luau at an oceanfront lawn in Waikiki. Held at the Waikiki Aquarium, Diamond Head Luau features a beautiful setting, and best of all, admission to the aquarium is included as well. Prior to the luau, you can walk through the aquarium and learn more about Hawaii’s fascinating variety of marine life.

Then watch or participate in a variety of cultural activities, such as traditional arts & crafts (flower lei making or headband weaving, hula and more). The hands-on activities are followed by a delicious farm-to-fork dinner, featuring an array of local foods, such as grass-fed beef, fresh line-caught fish and organic vegetables. After dinner, sit back and enjoy an exciting show with music and dances from Hawaii and greater Polynesia, including the Samoan fire-knife dance.
