There are few more quintessentially Hawaiian activities than a luau, a traditional party or feast that’s accompanied by live music and hula dancing. Many visitors to the iconic archipelago in the Central Pacific try to fit a luau into their itinerary, and those who wish to do so certainly aren’t short of options, with regular luaus held across the islands.

Though the cost of a luau can vary by location, you can expect a minimum of $90 to $100 per adult, which typically includes a buffet dinner, drinks, a Polynesian dance and music show. Accompanied children aged five or below are usually allowed in for free. If you’re looking for a luau to attend on Honolulu or its state capital of Oahu, we’ve picked out 5 of the best.
