Oahu Harley Adventures

By Hawaii.com Team

Oahu is a unique driving experience and has Interstates that don’t connect with any other state. Think of Oahu as piece of pie in shape and the key highway is H1 and it runs east and west for the most part and connects to the H2 and H3 which are short cuts to different parts of the island. Pick up a 101 Things to do magazine at the airport baggage area for key section maps of the island. Oahu offers great day trips including the North shore, Kailua Beaches, Polynesian Cultural Center, Pearl Harbor and Ko’Olina.

You will find the roadways well marked and signage is easy to follow.

Honolulu and Waikiki Tips

Honolulu is a modern vibrant city with great night life and dining. The city has three major areas: Chinatown, Downtown and Waikiki.

  • Tip #1 Enter Waikiki, the best cruise in Hawaii, via Kalakaua Ave and exit through Ala Wai Blvd. Within Waikiki, you’ll find many one way roads & there is really only one way in and one way out; but the good news is they lead back to Kalakaua or Ala Wai. So cruise the night away.
  • Tip #2 When travelling to Waikiki from the airport (drive, taxi or shuttle), take the Nimitz highway into Waikiki and you’ll cruise by Chinatown, Aloha Tower, downtown, and the world’s largest outdoor mall Ala Moana Shopping Center. By doing this you will see how easy it is to cruise the streets of Honolulu on a Harley.
  • Tip #3 Circle the island, head east or west on H1 and follow the signs, we recommend lunch at the Shrimp Shack, Crouching Lion or Turtle Bay while watching the surfers, cruise through the North Shore in the winter to see some huge surf. On the east side, stop at the blow hole and Sandy Beach, then head to the windward side to see Kailua beach.
