Luau at the Paradise Cove

They say, a Hawaiian vacation won’t be complete without a luau. Later in the afternoon, we were treated to a wonderful luau experience at Paradise Cove – known to be Hawaii’s best luau.

Here’s sharing with you snippets of our luau experience:
We were greeted with Mai Tai drinks and live music to set the festive
mood of the party.

Hawaiians say, a flower placed behind your left ear means you're taken/married,
while a flower placed behind your right ear means you're single.

There were Hawaiian games we played and various native products for purchase.

Hukilau on the beach
 -- where they showed us the old-fashioned net fishing technique

Imu Ceremony
--where they showed us how their roasted pig was cooked underground.

Of course, a luau (or any party) would not be complete without FOOD!
Here's a shot of one of 4 long buffet tables.

The performers entertained us with Hawaiian and Polynesian
songs and dances throughout the rest of the night.
This was indeed a spectacular experience I will never forget. The Paradise Cove luau is really a must-try, especially for first time tourists visiting Hawaii. :)
