Driving from Waikiki past Hanauma Bay

We've never driven past Hanauma Bay along the coast, but my wife, 2 kids and I are planning to do this. Any suggestions on what to see and do? We're fairly open. We rented a Jeep and are looking to enjoy it. Thanks.

Drive all the way around the island and over to north shore. Lots to see and do. Get a map that points out all of the sites along the way and plan an entire day for it. It's a great adventure.

Personally I prefer to do it in a big comfy cadillac, but a jeep is OK. Be sure to put on lots of sun screen !!

Have a great trip.

Just kick back and keep driving! Just to get away from all the crowds in Waikiki!! That alone is enough to do and a good enough reason to drive around the island! Check out the North Shore, Chinaman's Hat, Kailua Beach, the Dole Plantation, the famous shrimp trucks, etc., etc.
