Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Wed): see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take in the exciting artwork at Clark Little Gallery, and then meet some fierce fish with a shark diving experience. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Sunset Beach Park, kick back and relax at Ko Olina Lagoons, and then explore the striking landscape at Ka'ena Point State Park.
