Oahu - The Gathering Isle
O’ahu is the most populated of the islands and the gathering spot for so many of the islands visitors and activities. It’s home to Honolulu, Waikiki, the North Shore, and Pearl Harbor.
While there is a lot to see and do here, it’s also the most developed and busy. Some people avoid it for that reason, but there is plenty to love about O’ahu.
O’ahu’s main areas are: Honolulu and Waikiki on the south shores, some of the world’s top rated beaches on the windward side (such as Lanikai and Waimanalo), the famous surf breaks of the North Shore, and the resort area of Ko’Olina on the west side.
There is plenty of hiking and beach activities around the island. O’ahu’s Hanauma Bay is famous for it’s snorkeling (although there are plenty of areas on all of the islands for that). O’ahu also offers some of the best high-end shopping.
O’ahu goes from rural to busy downtown cities. Its main airport is in Honolulu.
Below you will find all of the posts about O'ahu. Explore them to get a flavor of what you'll find awaiting you!

On the windward side of O’ahu is Makapu’u Point (pu’u means hill or cone, a word seen a lot on the islands). Here at Makapu’u Point, there’s a lighthouse trail, an overlook, and a beach (going east to west). All three are fun in their own right and worth exploring. // Makapu’u Lighthouse Trail The lighthouse trail is the first… Read More
One of the best ways to see the islands is by the air. And a doors-off helicopter tour is the epitome of that experience. I really can’t say enough good things about it. It’s one of the most unique ways to see the islands. The views you get are unbelievable. And if you’ve never flown in a helicopter before, the… Read More
