So much to see and do On the island of oahu
The Island of Oahu, also known as The Gathering Place - truly has it all...beaches, shopping, tours, dining, adventure, relaxtion, nightlife, ocean sports - and all with some of the best weather on the planet!
Here is our Queen Kapiolani staff recommendations for the Best Of Oahu
Get high atop Diamond Head, where you can see the entire south shore, and all the way to the West side.
- Watch a sunset
Our favorite spot to catch the sunset is at Waikiki Beach Walls, where the pier juts out to the ocean.
- Spot a monk seal
Waikiki is also home to a resident monk seal family that often come ashore to sunbathe. Swing by Sans Souci beach to see if you can catch a glimpse.
The crystal clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean are so fun to explore. Head to Hanauma Bay for an experience that's like swimming in an aquarium.
Whether your a new or experiences yogi, Waikiki has classes for all levels. YogAloha is our favorite studio to zen out.
BIKI has made it easier than ever to get around by bike. So grab a set of wheels and explore from Diamond Head to Kaka'ako for a real tour of the town.
There are a number of great course within a short drive from Waikiki. Swing with the pro's just straight down the road in Kahala at the Waialae Country Club, the home of the Sony Open.
Kalua Pork, Poi, & Mai Tai's what more could you want? How about an amazing sunset and fire knife dancers as well? Head to Paradise Cove Luau for all of that and more.
- Mai Tai
Speaking of Mai Tai's... Our favorite is on the Beach at Duke's Waikiki, the quintessential cocktail spot for visitors and locals.
Waikiki's slow rolling waves and shallow water is the perfect spot for hanging 10. Grab a board or a surf lesson from our friends over at the Hans Hedemann Surf School. Hans is an old pro surfer, and will having you ready to surf Pipeline in no time.
- Live Music
Blue Note has opened their newest location just a short walk down the road. Stop in for local and international favorites.
Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial are synonymous with Hawaiian American history, and a must do on your visit to Oahu. Spend a few hours or the whole day exploring this historical site.
Our favorite spot for Hawaiian culture and history would have to be the Bishop Museum, located near Downtown Honolulu. With 5 floors of artifacts, art, and more the Bishop Museum is a real treat for learning more about Hawaii.
