Guides


Jim Russi

Jim Russi has been a senior photographer for Surfer Magazine, yet his imagery might be most well known for the vivacious Roxy ads that have inspired females to get in the water for more than a decade. Beyond surf magazines and industry ads, Russi’s imagery steps onto canvas at the Thomadro Art Gallery in Hale‘iwa. Additionally, Flying Through the Clouds, a 180-page coffee table book was recently published and features Russi’s 30 years of surf photography and travel stories. Check out the gallery and take a piece of Hawai‘i home with you.

JJ Dolans

The success of JJ Dolan’s, a favorite anytime-of-the-day spot for downtown businessmen, sports fans and artists, is based on one simple concept: hot pizza and cold beer. Opening its doors to Chinatown patrons in January 2008, JJ Dolan’s has gained a steady following and great reputation for what many call the best pizza on the island. Fashioned after New York style pizzas, the pies here are the perfect blend of crispy crust, sauces and toppings. The spinach and garlic, topped with creamy ricotta cheese mounds, is highly addictive.

K-Surf

While enjoying the fine white sands of Kailua or Lanikai beach, you might find yourself enthralled by two islands off in the distance. The Mokulua Islands, or “The Mokes” as they are called, are comprised of Moku Nui (the larger double-humped island to the north) and Moku Iki (the smaller to the south). The easiest way to get there is by kayak or for the physically fit, by paddleboard. Since the bay is a turtle sanctuary, don’t be surprised if you see a few honu floating around the tranquil turquoise waters. Once you reach the islands, which function as seabird sanctuaries, you may see plenty of birds nesting. Be sure to bring reef walkers or shoes to explore tide pools around the island. You can easily rent kayaks at Kailua Sailboards & Kayaks and walk to the beach.

Ko Olina

Ko Olina Golf Club, one of Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Resort Courses in the U.S.” is a challenging 18-hole course built in 1990 by renowned golf course architect Ted Robinson. Typical of his designs, Ko Olina Golf Club features exceptional water features, multi-tiered greens, large landing areas, and a moderate length, which makes it perfect for beginners and experts alike. The clubhouse design symbolizes all the aspirations of the resort.  Approximately 35,000 square feet, the architecture is characterized by its tri-level design and Hawaiian pitched roofs. Broad overhangs and verandas give it an open atmosphere and provides golfers with spectacular views of the course and landscape. The clubhouse is also home to Roy’s Ko Olina, one of iconic chef Roy Yamaguchi’s 31 restaurants around the world featuring the Hawaiian fusion cuisine he made famous and which earned him the coveted James Beard award.

Longhis

Longhi’s undoubtedly has the best Benedict on the island. Their lobster Benedict ($21) is served with two perfectly poached eggs and a hollandaise sauce that somehow manages to be creamy and decadent without being too rich or overpowering. Their regular eggs Benedict and eggs Florentine are just as delightful and won’t break the bank. Pair it with a refreshing mimosa while you enjoy expansive views of the ocean on their patio lanai. Dinner’s great too; try the lemon-butter artichoke Longhi, the impeccably prepared New York steak and the hot Belgian chocolate soufflé.

Roy's

Despite opening its first restaurant in 1988, Roy’s manages stay relevant and delicious to a fickle eater whose tastes are continually changing. The menus at the many Roy’s across the island is as much determined by each restaurant’s executive chef as it is by local fishermen, ranchers and farmers. On any given night, patrons coming for namesake Yamaguchi’s “originals,” like the macadamia nut-crusted mahi mahi or the Hawaiian-style blackend ahi, might be swayed by local offerings that were still swimming only hours before.

Seals

Skip the crowded beaches and head for the isolated coves and rocky points that attract the Hawaiian monk seal or ‘īlioholoikauaua (“dog running in the rough seas”). The seal’s population is estimated at only 1,060 individuals, making it one of the rarest marine mammals on Earth. Sharing the beach with a monk seal is a rare treat and privilege; federal laws require you to stay at least 50 yards away from a resting seal. The Conservation Council for Hawai‘i is working to protect endangered species, such as the monk seal, for future generations.
