The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of the most visited destinations in Hawaii! Our beautiful 42 acre park, which sits along the northeast edge of Oahu, features six distinct Polynesian villages, Hawaii, Aotearoa, Fiji, Tahiti, Tonga and Samoa. We offer numerous dining options including daily luaus which provides a delicious island themed buffet and lively entertainment. Our award winning evening show, Ha: Breath of Life features over 100 Polynesian performers, presenting a stirring tale of love, adventure, life and death and featuring championship level fireknife dancers and jaw dropping special effects. We also provide a variety of shops and kiosks offering everything from aloha inspired clothing to quality ukuleles, and island souvenirs to fine jewelry.

An absolutely fantastic place to visit and learn about the various Polynesian cultures. Allow a full day the center opens at midday and the show finishes at about 8/30 Pm. Plenty to see and do.

The show is one of the best I’ve ever seen. The dancing and story are amazing. It is worth a drive from Waikiki.

Wow, this place is fantastic. It's sort of like the Polynesian version of a Renaissance Faire. You learn about all the different cultures and there are hands on learning stations. The staff is simply amazing. The Luau was delightful and not particularly cheesy. The post...More
