Overview

The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of the most visited destinations in Hawaii! Our beautiful 42-acre park, which sits on the North Shore 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 Fire-Knife 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.
