Activities at Paradise Cove include:
Arts and Crafts:
The arts and crafts of old Hawaii are as beautiful as they are intricate and complex. During your visit to Paradise Cove, be sure to visit the Hawaiian Village and take part in arts and crafts demonstrations. Learn how to make a traditional Hawaiian lei or leave with a slightly more permanent memory, temporary Polynesian tattoos.
In ancient Hawaii, games were created as a form of entertainment, but also to develop the skills of the warriors. At Paradise Cove you can take part in some of the more popular traditional Hawaiian games. To test your skills try 'O'o ihe (Spear throwing), 'Ulu maika (Rolling stone disks) and Moa pahe'e (Dart sliding).
Shower of Flowers:
Imagine standing on a beautiful white sand beach gently showered by fragrant island flowers. Witness skilled tree-climbers ascend the highest of palm trees and spread the aloha of the islands with a floral cascade, making this dream-like scene into an experience you will remember forever.
Hukilau on the Beach:
Paradise Cove keeps the traditions of old Hawaii alive with a nightly Hukilau on the beach. You are invited to participate in the ceremonial pulling of the fish nets to the rhythms of the conch shell and Hawaiian chant
At Hawaii's only Imu Amphitheater, take a seat to view the elaborate process of traditional cooking in the Hawaiian underground oven. In a ceremony following the practices and rituals of ancient times, you will see exactly how your delicious Hawaiian meal is prepared.
Paradise Cove Extravaganza:
With the most spectacular Hawaiian sunset as a backdrop, the Paradise Cove Main Stage explodes with the beauty and excitement of the traditional songs and dances of Hawaii and Polynesia. Award-winning dancers will entertain and amaze you with a performance that is as unforgettable as the perfect setting of Paradise Cove itself.

Entry/Admission - Paradise Cove Luau
The show was excellent!!!! We also loved learning how to make flower bracelets. Paradise Cove is a beautiful setting, especially when the sun is going down. Food was mediocre but the show made up for it
What a great experience. There are so many events to partake in. There are temporary tattoos, games, and several cool live events that the dancers do before the show. The food was great, and, of course, the show was great! I do wish the show lasted a little bit longer, but I guess I'm being spoiled. Haha. Definitely recommend!!!!
I don't think you can go to Hawaii and not go to an event like this. We had a fantastic time. The food was really good, especially the BBQ. The show was impressive. Paradise Cove was lovely. We met several folks at the show. Everybody was very friendly. I highly recommend this experience.
Paradise cove was an amazing luau experience. We had pickup service at our hotel and the bus ride and our guide was very nice and informative. The scenery upon entering the grounds was beautiful and photo ops endless. Buffet style food that was very good and the crowd moving was great seeing that the night we attended there were over 1,000 people. The show was very good and it truly was an enjoyable event and I would recommend to anyone looking for luau experience.
It was good but I don't think I will be back. Just wasn't for me.
Entertainment was great, food just average. Our tour guide Mo was fantastic!!!
Returned last evening from the cove and what a beautiful location. It is picture postcard scenery and I would spend a day there, given the choice. We arrived on a tour which meant most of the activities were well under way and queues for most arts and crafts made the kids and adults a little impatient. So, if you can, get there early and take your swimming gear as the cove is lovely and you can go canoeing. Food was perfectly fine and plenty if you wanted it. The show itself was first rate and the dancers certainly captivating, for both sexes - in my opinion it was definitely worth the money.
Great food, the dancing looked professional and they had the best fire dancer I've seen. The night just flowed really nicely. Also, thanks to our bus guide cousin Kai, he made the bus trip back home really fun.
Everything aside from the food had an added cost
A really fantastic place to go..had a great evening lots to do not just a show. There was other things to participate in games kayaking lea making good for all the family.The staff were friendly and very helpful.Good all round highly recommended thankyou
