So, you want to take part in one of the most exciting experiences to be had on the North Shore of Oahu? Toa Luau is a unique evening of entertainment, food, and cultural awareness set within the beauty of Waimea Valley. With your luau ticket, you also get access to the botanical gardens and Waimea Falls, so you want to get there well before the luau check-in time. It’s a fun day full of outdoor activity that you don’t want to miss out on, but you’re a bit worried because, like the majority of visitors, you opted to stay in Waikiki, which is located on the southern coast of Oahu.

Obviously, that’s not a bad thing. The southern part of the island is loaded with its own opportunities for thrills and adventures, but staying there does require you to figure out transportation when you want to make the trip to the North Shore. Which brings us to the point of this article: how can you get to Toa Luau if you’re staying in Waikiki?

What’s the Best Way To Get to Waimea Valley?

The best way to visit Waimea Valley and/or Toa Luau is to rent a car and drive yourself.

If you’re wondering if public transportation is an option, it is. However, there are a few things to keep in mind with public transportation. While Oahu’s public transportation system is reasonably good, it’s still subject to the downsides that come with the territory, such as vehicle breakdowns and overcrowding, especially at peak commute times. Having to plan your day around public transportation can be a hassle, and that’s not what vacation is supposed to be about!

If renting a car is not an option, you can always negotiate a round trip rate with the numerous taxi drivers in Waikiki.  While Uber may get you there, it could be a struggle finding one to bring you back so please keep that in mind.
