Everybody loves a good view. It’s the difference between falling in love with a location and walking away feeling slightly underwhelmed. In the Hawaiian Islands, location is everything. With so many beautiful sights to behold, where an event takes place is a big part of the event itself. For instance, when it comes to luaus, you don’t want your backdrop to be a bunch of ugly buildings that block out what should be a breathtaking view. So how do you choose Oahu’s most scenic luau?

To be honest, it’s hard to find a bad spot to host a luau on Oahu. The lush greenery, the towering mountains, and even the backdrop of Honolulu and Waikiki all provide lovely backdrops for an unforgettable luau. Almost all Oahu luaus are set in breathtaking locales, but which one gets our nod as the most scenic?

So, What Is Oahu’s Most Scenic Luau?

For our money, Oahu’s most scenic luau is currently Diamond Head Luau.

Located at the Waikiki Aquarium, Diamond Head Luau features some of the most impressive views offered by a Hawaiian luau. Sitting at your table in the warm tropical air, you have an unimpeded view of the breathtaking Diamond Head Crater. The iconic 700’ tall summit rises into the skies over southeastern Oahu, a stunning view and the perfect backdrop for this highly-rated luau.

As you’re feasting on Hawaii’s only farm-to-table luau buffet, look out at the sparkling, cobalt blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. As darkness falls, looking in the other direction you can see the glittering lights of Waikiki and downtown Honolulu.

In addition to its high marks for the farm-to-table buffet feast, Diamond Head Luau is also, according to many, Oahu’s most scenic luau.
