Oahu Guide

O’ahu – “The Heart of Hawaii”
Oahu, the third largest in the Hawaiian island chain, is an island paradise uniquely characterized by its pristine natural beauty, multicultural mix of people, rich history and modern attractions. Home to three quarters of the state’s almost 1.3 million inhabitants, Oahu is a bustling center for tourism and island living. A fusion of Eastern and Western cultures, Oahu offers its residents an exquisite mix of fine arts, historic architecture, cultural activities, world-class shopping, and fine dining featuring Hawaiian Pacific Rim Cuisine. On the dynamic island of Oahu, you can enjoy exciting big-city life against a backdrop of sparkling azure waters, majestic mountains, lush tropical foliage and sweeping vistas.

Natural Splendor Meets Fun, Adventure and Metropolitan Delight
With 112 miles of coastline, Oahu is paradise, featuring clear blue waters and never-ending sandy beaches where you can spend your days enjoying a variety of exciting outdoor sports and activities, or simply sunbathe in the warm tropical sun. The water temperature remains at a comfortable 75-80 degrees year-round, making Oahu the ideal place for outdoor ventures including surfing, snorkeling, windsurfing, boogie boarding, swimming and kayaking. Enjoy some of the finest snorkeling in the world at the famous Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Or learn to surf like a pro at one of many surf schools in the area. In the winter, the PGA Sony Open Tournament at Waialae Golf Course and the North Shore’s professional surf competitions are followed worldwide.
And if you’re seeking indoor entertainment, you will not be disappointed. Enhance your historic and cultural knowledge of the region with visits to the Polynesian Cultural Center, the Bishop Museum and Pearl Harbor, where you’ll find memorials to those fallen in World War II. Or enjoy world-class shopping at Ala Moana Center, the largest open-air shopping center in the world, featuring nearly 300 stores including local boutiques and national retailers.
