Soft trade winds and friendly Aloha spirit welcome you to the Hawaiian paradise of Oahu. The island is a unique mix of cosmopolitan chic and down-to-earth Hawaiian hospitality. It’s here that you’ll find exciting recreation, stirring Hawaiian culture and an engaging paradise that lures you back time and again. You’ll also find gorgeous condos and houses with helpful amenities like non-smoking spaces, Internet access, laundry facilities, parking and air conditioning to make your stay even more pleasurable.
While Honolulu’s inviting beaches and warm seawater may tempt you to spend all your time kayaking and sunbathing, take some time to explore the world-renowned Bishop Museum complex. There, you’ll discover ancient artifacts in the Hawaii Hall, enjoy hands-on science and volcanology exhibits at the Science Adventure Center and learn how the ancients navigated the vast South Pacific at the J. Watumull Planetarium.
The Kingdom of Hawaii lives on in gorgeous Iolani Palace, in the heart of Honolulu. Inside the palace, you’ll walk in the footsteps of King Kalakaua and his sister Queen Lili’uokalani as you stroll through the state rooms and private royal suites. The palace’s exterior is just as beautiful as its interior with a grand Coronation Pavilion, imposing barracks and sacred royal tomb.
The impetus of America’s involvement in World War II is found in Pearl Harbor's five historic sites. The submerged remains of the USS Arizona and USS Oklahoma are sobering reminders of the lives lost during 1941's Pearl Harbor attacks, and the Battleship Missouri commemorates the site of Japanese surrender years later.
If you enjoy watching world-class surfers take on massive waves, Oahu’s North Shore is the place to go, especially in late autumn. Sunset Beach, Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay are idyllic beaches, and the charming town of Haleiwa gives you a glimpse into Hawaiian surf history. While on the North Shore, spend a day at the colorfully vibrant Polynesian Cultural Center to explore authentic Polynesian villages and experience exciting dance shows.
Best known for its legendary beach, iconic surf spots and high-rise resorts, Waikiki is also a shopper’s delight. Browse high-end boutiques on Kalakaua Avenue’s Luxury Row, Royal Hawaiian Center and Waikiki Shopping Plaza. You’ll find chic restaurants and trendy nightclubs as well as authentic hula and ukulele performances to keep you fed and entertained throughout your shopping sojourn.
Oahu is blessed with cooling trade winds that moderate tropical heat and humidity. As a result, average high temperatures hover in comfortable 70s and 80s throughout the year. With more than 3,100 hours of sunshine a year, rain is frequently light and fleeting, although winter rain can be heavy. Spring and fall are the best times to visit the island since crowds are smaller and the weather is beautiful.
Flying into Oahu is popular, and the approach gives you a terrific view of the island. The airport is intimate, easy to use and offers access to most major rental car companies. If you prefer to use your own private car while on the island, you may ship your car from the U.S. mainland. If you’re departing from other Hawaiian Islands, you and your vehicle can travel to Oahu on the Hawaii Superferry. Cruising to the island is also a popular option, with cruise ships docking at Pier 2 near the picturesque Aloha Tower.
