Dole Plantation on Oahu
The Dole Plantation is located on the North Shore of Oahu, it is a 40 minute drive from Waikiki. There is a bus from Waikiki that can take you there for $2.75 one way. I’m not sure if its in my mind but the pineapple there is so sweet and absolutely delicious, make sure you get the Pineapple Dole Whip and then they cover it in fresh pineapple, yum yum yum!
