Oahu is known as "The Gathering Place" and embodies Hawaii's energetic spirit. Dive headfirst into the action by surfing at our world famous beaches or snorkeling in the bountiful ocean, hiking mountains and rainforests, and dancing the evening away as a brilliant sunset spreads across the ocean.

Staff Recommendations for
the Best of Oahu

  • Hiking: 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 Beach is also home to a resident monk seal family that often comes ashore to sunbathe. Swing by Sans Souci Beach to see if you can catch a glimpse.
  • Snorkeling: The crystal clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean are so much fun to explore. Head to Hanauma Bay for an experience that's like swimming in an aquarium.
  • Yoga: Whether you're a new or experienced yogi, Waikiki has classes for all levels. YogAloha is our favorite studio to zen out.
  • Biking: 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.
  • Golf: There are a number of great courses within a short drive from Waikiki. Swing with the pros at several local golf courses, which include the home of the Sony Open.
  • Luau: Kalua Pork, Poi, & Mai Tai's, what more could you want? How about an amazing sunset and fire knife dancers as well? Had 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.
  • Surf: 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 have 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.
  • History: 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.
  • Culture: 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 those wanting to learning more about Hawaii.
