The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of the most visited destinations in Hawaii! Our beautiful 42 acre park, which sits along the northeast edge of Oahu, features six distinct Polynesian villages, Hawaii, Aotearoa, Fiji, Tahiti, Tonga and Samoa. We offer numerous dining options including daily luaus which provides a delicious island themed buffet and lively entertainment. Our award winning evening show, Ha: Breath of Life features over 100 Polynesian performers, presenting a stirring tale of love, adventure, life and death and featuring championship level fireknife dancers and jaw dropping special effects. We also provide a variety of shops and kiosks offering everything from aloha inspired clothing to quality ukuleles, and island souvenirs to fine jewelry.

The Polynesian Cultural Center is Amazing! Is a tourist trap? Yes, that's why it was built. To inform tourist of the Polynesian culture. It's built like a casino in order to keep you inside spending money on the premises, which is just good business. That...More

We picked the circle island tour with the PCC, as we had only one day to cover everything. The bus driver/guide was 40 min late and offered no apologies. Running behind was a bad way to start as we only got 5 min at each...More
