Iconic Attractions on Oahu

The island of Oahu holds a very special place in Hawaii, from both a historical standpoint and from the current day as the most populated island in the chain. Home to state capital of Honolulu, the world famous North Shore, Diamond Head, and Pearl Harbor, the island is easily the most visited island in Hawaii, welcoming more than 8 million visitors annually.

From the white sandy beaches, to the lush mountains, Oahu is a beautiful place, exemplifying the natural beauty of Hawaii and the big city of Honolulu. While the island has blossomed into a modern metropolis, there are parts of it that have kept the low key feel that Hawaii is known for, with quaint towns, isolate communities, and hidden secrets. There is so much to discover on Oahu that no matter how many times you return, there is something new to find.

For every unknown, there are attractions that are well known and help to make the island famous. Each visitor will quickly become familiar with these sites, and will be apart of any vacation.

Diamond Head
Found on the south end of the island, this extinct volcanic crater can be seen from anywhere on the island’s south and west facing shores. It stands over Waikiki Beach, and acts as a landmark and a icon for Oahu.

Pearl Harbor
One of the most famous destinations in Hawaii, Pearl Harbor is the site of the tragic attacks of December 7, 1941. Today, Pearl Harbor allows guests to pay respects to World War II heroes, and learn all about the tragedy that struck the island.

North Shore
The surf mecca of Hawaii, the North Shore features many beaches that draw surfers from all over the world. In the summer months, there may not be a better place to relax on the beach and enjoy the peaceful water. And in the winter, the waves are huge and bring the surfers and annual competitions. Along the North Shore, you’ll also find food trucks and Haleiwa Town, a great place to shop and explore.

Waikiki Beach
Likely, this is where you will be staying during your trip to Oahu. Featuring more than 100 hotels, Waikiki features a plethora of restaurants and fantastic options for shopping. The proximity of everything is quite close, and walking is the preferred mode of transportation. Pearl Harbor is not far and the South Shore of the island is easily accessible via car or bus.
