Combining the big city with the lush Hawaiian countryside, the island of Oahu is the most modern of the islands, and has also managed to maintain the sleepy island feel that Hawaii is famous for. Over 100 beaches lined the island’s coastline, and discovering the island really gives you the best of both worlds.
If you are looking for the high end vacation, filled with shopping, stays at luxurious hotels, and dining at the finest restaurants on the island, Oahu can take care of you. A stay along Waikiki Beach will satisfy all of these and also allow you easy access to one of the most famous beaches in the world, with warm waters, ocean activities, lounging, and the iconic Diamond Head Crater in close view. There is so much to do throughout Waikiki that you will never have to leave the area, and can fill your entire vacation at one of the many hotels that front the water. Though the area is quite busy, you will still feel like you are in paradise, and will have so much at your disposal that your vacation will be memorable.
If you are looking to get out of the city and escape the bigger crowds, and discover the island, Oahu has plenty of options for that as well. Just a short drive from Waikiki, the island transforms from city to country, with hidden beaches and rainforests, plus an abundance of secrets that are waiting to be discovered. From the North Shore to the Windward Coast, sites like the Polynesian Cultural Center and La’ie Point can be found, in addition to the most famous beaches in Hawaii, and an amazing selection of food trucks that are found all along the coast.
Along the South Shore of the island, the scenery changes again to a desert environment, with rocky cliffs and lookout points lining the coast. See Rabbit Island and the Halona Blowhole, while taking in panoramic views just south of Diamond Head. It is almost hard to believe that this is the same island, only a few miles from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.
Still, the most amazing part of the island is waiting to be discovered: the lush rainforests that provide backdrop for the island’s stunning oceans. A whole new world awaits deep in the trees, where creeks and waterfalls transport you to a world that seems out of place. The Ko’olau Mountain Range is the perfect place for Nature Tours and Hiking Tours, giving discover Oahu an entirely new meaning.
Oahu is one of the most popular island destinations in the world, and once you arrive, you will see why. There is so much diversity and so much to do, that each day on the island can be a different adventure, and you won’t have to go too far to find it.
