Ilima Hotel provides information on a variety of Waikiki Beach nearby activities. One of Hawaii’s most popular islands is even more breathtaking when experienced from the air. Aerial excursions range from a 30-minute overview of the island’s must-see attractions to 60-minute tours or longer. All showcase stunning shorelines, rainforests, and cascading waterfalls. In just a few short moments, those who splurge on a helicopter ride will experience a tropical paradise and scenic panoramas that most land-locked visitors to Oahu miss.
For customer convenience, your helicopter tour begins with transportation to and from your Waikiki hotel. Then, dependent on island weather conditions, your accomplished pilot will decide the best way to navigate through the island’s beauty in the allotted tour time. In the Honolulu area, not to be missed is the famous Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, and historic Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. On the east end of the island, there’s crescent-shaped Hanauma Bay, a popular marine sanctuary and snorkel destination that was created by a past volcano crater. Another highlight of this area is Makapuu Point and its lighthouse. The white sand beach of Waimanalo serves as the perfect backdrop to highlight the coral reefs of Kaneohe Bay. Tourists always enjoy a tour through the “Jurassic Park” valley, where so many television series and notable movies have been filmed. The 1,000-foot Sacred Falls is a featured flyover that is hard to forget! The central plain of the island exposes the world’s largest agricultural maze and is home to the renowned Dole Pineapple Plantation.
The long list of helicopter tour vistas continues with famous Honolulu Harbor, a dramatic aerial view into Diamond Head crater, Mount Olomana and the historic Nuuanu Pali (where King Kamehameha’s warriors won their decisive battle to unite the islands). There’s Keehi Lagoon and world-famous surfing spots like Sunset Beach, Pipeline, and Waimea Bay. In Laie, you’ll look down upon the Mormon Temple, aquaculture farms, Kahuku Point, and Turtle Bay. With all these areas to explore, it may just take more than one helicopter tour to satisfy your aerial ambitions over the spectacular island of Oahu.
