A healthy lifestyle goes hand in hand with Hawaii. Whether you surf, hike, run, take a yoga class by the sea or just soak up the sun on the sand, there's something about Hawaii that brings out the healthy in everyone.
If you've found your way to this all natural beauty site, I can only assume you're interested in doing right by your body. So whether you live here or are just visiting, here are some of the best juice bars on Oahu to fuel your day.
SHAKA PRESSED JUICE
3118 Monsarrat Ave., Honolulu [[now closed]]
Located in the neighborhood of Diamond Head, Shaka Pressed Juice is a Honolulu hot spot. The cold-pressed juicery is helmed by the husband and wife team Juri Ko and Keegan Edwards. The Edwards' are avid surfers and Juri Ko is a well-known yoga instructor and personal trainer, so it's only natural the two are serving up raw, local and organic juices and plant-based foods to fuel their—and your—active lifestyle.
856 Ilaniwai Street, Suite101, Honolulu
Looking for a cold-pressed juice in the Kakaako neighborhood? Look no further than Instapressed. By using a hydraulic press, the fruits and veggies keep their important enzymes and nutrients.

Farm fresh aloha, served in a glass bottle, that's what Nalo Juice is. The team behind Nalo Juice Company is dedicated to living locally and off the land. The business sits at the base of the Ko'olau mountain range in Waimanalo, where the fruits and vegetables are fed by the rain that carved out the beautiful range. Inspired by Chef Craig King at Glow Juice Maui, Nalo's signature blends are unique to the islands—featuring tropical concoctions that focus on in-season ingredients. Think lilikoi (passion fruit), mango, dragon fruit, soursop, pineapple and more.
EXTRACT JUICE BAR
1001 Bishop Street, #103, Honolulu
Downtown executives, government workers and business people get their share of fresh juice throughout the week at Extract Juice Bar. There's a variety of fresh flavors for a variety of tastes, from extra fruity to super green, plus weekly specials and cleanse programs. The 24 oz juice is only $7, and when paired with Extract's healthful pita pizzas, a juice is only $5. Recently, the team behind Extract Juice Bar expanded their offerings—serving up healthful burritos alongside their juices.
THE BEET BOX CAFE
66-437 Kamehameha Highway, Haleiwa
This North Shore cafe is a health nut's hot spot. Though The Beet Box Cafe offers more than just juice, its simple, fresh juice menu keeps loyal customers coming back. The hidden Haleiwa gem serves up an entirely vegetarian menu so it's only natural that they shine when it comes to mixing fruits and veggies. My go-to concoction is the Energizer: apple, beet, ginger and lemon.
