With an endless array of things to do, you won’t get bored on Oahu.
Fantasy Island-worthy waterfalls, captivating views at every turn, more water sports than one can learn, and seemingly endless trails to explore. Lesser-known places become more familiar upon arrival, with travelers easily finding ways to soak up the local flair and fare. Leis and luaus, museums for surfboards, and adventures amidst sea life create an idyllic visit.
Often the first island of entry for first-time travelers, popular things to do on Oahu include: Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, hike to the top of Diamond Head Crater above Waikiki, and then relax on the white sands of Waimanalo Beach beneath the green and deeply furrowed Koolau Mountain Range—and this is all before lunch! From touring the historic buildings of Honolulu to surfing in Waikiki, Oahu has something for everyone.
