The third largest island in Hawai’i, O’ahu is where you can find diverse contrasts between the ancient and modern, which makes discovering the island so enjoyable. From bustling city life to laid back surf towns, you’ll find designer boutiques alongside handicraft stores, fresh seafood blended with tropical ingredients and businessmen wearing Hawaiian shirts.
O’ahu, it’s the heart of Hawai’i. Here you’ll find Honolulu, the state capital, and the world-famous Waikiki Beach, where surfing was born.

Take time to visit the USS Arizona Memorial, a shrine to the fallen service members and the Pearl Harbour attack. Stroll through impressive exhibits and let the kids walk through an erupting volcano at Honolulu’s impressive Bishop Museum. Climb the extinct Diamond Head volcano for a bird’s eye view over the Pacific Ocean and Honolulu, an absolutely breath-taking, worth every blister view. Slip out of your boardshorts and into something a little nicer to dance the night away with world-class DJ’s, or attend the latest art gallery opening or Broadway play. Rent a car and head out along the Kamehameha Highway to discover tiny villages, local artists, and remote beaches. Whether you crave adventure, seclusion, cultural immersion, or an ice cold drink and a view you’ll find it on O’ahu.
