United States Hawaii O'ahu


The third largest Hawaiian island, known for its capital Honolulu, iconic Waikiki Beach, and the memorial at Pearl Harbor.

Tips from the community

There are few images more mesmerizing than a balmy beach adorned with caramelized light drifting off into the peach-tinted horizon, a dream-like site that comes to life every Memorial Day in Honolulu. Tourists and locals take this moment of beauty to remember their loved ones, watching the picturesque lanterns drift into a reflection of peace on the sparkling sea. The ceremony stems from Buddhist roots and has been occurring for over 20 years.

Oahu is a worthwhile destination when visiting Hawaii. While it's far more populous and urban in nature than the other islands, it has much to offer. It lacks in snorkeling opportunities, but has excellent beaches, hiking, surfing, history, culture, and food. In fact, if you enjoy world class dining, Oahu is your island.
