Oahu Places

An enticing blend of cosmopolitan culture and natural beauty, Oahu is home to Hawaii's capital city of Honolulu, and its number one hot spot — Waikiki. It's often the first stop for first-time guests.

Learn to paddle an outrigger canoe or take a surf lesson. Waikiki Beach is a friendly place where many guests have learned to catch a wave for the first time. If you would rather watch some of the world's best surfers take on some giant waves, Oahu's North Shore is the home to Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, considered the Super Bowl of surfing, in November and December.

Sightseeing on Oahu should include Iolani Palace, a national historic landmark and the only official state residence of royalty in the United States. If eating is your thing, you've come to the right place. There's something for every palate on Oahu. From local hole-in-the-wall family eateries to some of the top restaurants in the world, you'll find what you're hungry for.
