The Island of Oahu

The Gathering Place

Oahu, known as “The Gathering Place,” is the most populated area in the island chain. Oahu is almost home to some of the most recognizable landmarks in the world like Diamond Head, the world-famous Waikiki Beach, and Pearl Harbor. Most people think of Honolulu, Oahu’s largest city and state capitol, as a metropolitan with global flavor, but just a few miles outside of the city limits, quieter getaways can be found.

The North Shore, a sleepy surfer town, combines a laid-back artsy vibe with monster waves and Kailua, a slice of nature’s paradise, offers an amazing hiking opportunity and one of the best beaches in the state. You could also plan a visit to ʻIolani Palace and immerse yourself in Hawaii’s royal past. There’s something for every traveler on Oahu.
