Oahu is the state capital of Hawaii and is the most popular and well known of the Hawaiian Islands. It’s famous for its lively Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbour and its major North Shore surfing competitions.


Oahu has the perfect mix of cultural wonders on offer. Start your journey in downtown Honolulu with a walking tour of the city’s landmarks. Make sure you visit the Iolani Palace located in the centre of the city, the only official residence of royalty in the USA. The Hawaii Arts Museum in Honolulu’s Art District is also worth a visit.

Next head to the Nuuanu Pali lookout to experience the amazing mountain views that frame the island.

Finally why not take a day trip to one of the five historic sights of Pearl Harbour where you can climb aboard the USS Bowfin in the Submarine Museum or head over to the Pacific Aviation Museum to see how the battle continued in the skies.

Oahu also has some amazing beaches. North Shore, the birth place of big wave surfing is a must and offers you the chance to relax in the sun while watching the surfers tackle the winter waves! Hanauma Bay Nature Reserve offers the best in snorkelling, whilst Waikiki Beach is a favourite among visitors, known for its beautiful backdrop, great water sports and fun nightlife.
