Oahu

– Hawaii –

Here, you’ll find the city of Honolulu and the infamous Pearl Harbor. In other words, it’s a hot spot dripping with history and culture. And that includes places like Leahi (aka Diamond Head), Lolani Palace, and Waikiki, known for its beaches, surfing, and nightlife. Plus, you can learn a little something or two about the Hawaiian royalty that once lived here and then see an incredible sight at Nuuanu Pali Lookout. And, if you’re looking for something a little bit out of the ordinary, just track down a shrimp food truck on the North Shore of the island. That’s the best way to make the most of the Hawaii Regional Cuisine. This culinary movement was created in 1991 and was meant to blend the land and local food. And let’s just say when it comes to food, Hawaiians really value their farm-to-table traditions.

About Oahu


Sometimes called “The Gathering Place,” Oahu certainly lives up to its name. The third largest Hawaiian island is home to the majority of Hawaii’s diverse population, a fusion of east and west cultures rooted in the values and traditions of the Native Hawaiian people. It’s this fundamental contrast between the ancient and the modern that makes discovering Oahu so enjoyable. The clear blue waters of Kailua Beach meet the metropolitan cityscapes of Honolulu. The historic architecture of Iolani Palace meets the timeless memorials of Pearl Harbor. The big city of Waikiki meets the small town of Haleiwa on the North Shore. Whether you’re hiking atop iconic Leahi (Diamond Head), enjoying some of Hawaii’s best shopping, or simply unwinding on the sands of the island’s beautiful beaches, you’ll find variety at every turn on Oahu. ​
