Home to Honolulu, the cosmopolitan capital city of the Hawaiian Islands, as well as an array of palm-backed flawless beaches and sites of great historical significance, Oahu is arguably the most culturally diverse island in the archipelago.

Activities on the island

From laid-back coastal towns to vibrant neighbourhoods, visitors to Oahu can expect varied days that may begin with a surf lesson in Haleiwa (known as the surf capital of the world) and end with sipping a Blue Hawaii (the island’s signature cocktail) on Waikiki Beach.

Pearl Harbour

Currently the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet and a deep-water naval base, Pearl Harbor sits amongst the southern lagoons of Oahu. Marked by the impressive USS Arizona Memorial site, the historic landmark offers visitors to the island a unique opportunity to learn about the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Diamond Head

Not to be outdone by neighbouring Big Island, Oahu is host to the enormous and iconic Diamond Head, a once active volcano that towers over Waikiki. The 1,073-metre-wide and 232-metre-tall extinct, saucer-shaped crater is now a popular hiking destination.
