Hale Koa Activities

You won't run out of things to experience at Hale Koa, that is for sure. 

It’s no secret that our prime location on Waikiki Beach is the kind of paradise that most people dream about. Only, for military service members, families and sponsored guests, you have real-life, affordable access to this extraordinary benefit. It’s time to get out and see what you can do. Hale Koa Hotel’s extensive grounds are teeming with activities nestled neatly into secluded spaces. Grab some sunscreen and go.
