Transport yourself to a tropical paradise without having to leave shores of San Diego. Starting June 30, the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa on Mission Bay welcomes the return of its 16th season of annual Sunset Luaus.

Enjoy entertainment from the Pride of Polynesia, a local group that provides authentic island music and dance, including hula and captivating firey torch dancers. You won’t go hungry at this beach-side extravaganza. The luau dinner includes tropical Mai Tais and an all-you-can-eat Hawaiin buffet.

Luaus take place at 6 p.m. on Fridays, June 30 through Sept. 1, and on Tuesdays from July 25 to Aug. 22. Admission is $69 for adults, $23 for children ages 5-12 and kids under 5 are free. Special rates are available for hotel guests, military and groups of 15+.
