5 Ways to Enjoy a Memorable Vacation on Oahu

1. Explore the Beaches

Even if you don’t set foot in the water, you’ll enjoy every moment spent strolling Oahu’s incredible beaches. Take a moment to sink into the plush sand, or enjoy a boat tour of the crisp turquoise waters. You can even book a helicopter to get a bird’s eye view of Honolulu harbor or the Ko‘olau Range.

2. Learn to Skydive

If you crave an adrenaline rush, take the plunge with skydiving. Accompanied by a certified instructor, you’ll enjoy the thrill of free fall as you soar through the air and take in the breathtaking sights below. If you have time, you can even take a skydiving course to set yourself up for an exciting new hobby.

3. Try a Delicacy

While on the islands, you can’t miss the local cuisine, which no other place on the planet can produce authentically. Indulge in a plate of mouthwatering loco moco, a bowl of ahi poke, or a refreshing cup of shave ice. Your trip won’t be complete without a plate of haupia, a traditional and beloved Hawaiian dessert made with coconut milk.

4. Visit Historic Sites

The attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 was the catalyst for the U.S. to join World War II, which inspired historical sites on Oahu like the U.S. Army Museum of Hawaii and the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. Natural sites of interest abound as well, like the Diamond Head State Monument where you can enjoy incredible views of Honolulu.

5. Snorkel & Swim

Satisfy your adventurous side and prepare to experience a serious adrenaline rush in Hawaii’s underwater world. You’ll have the chance to view wondrous marine life, including everything from colorful tropical fish and vibrant reefs to dolphins, with many species found nowhere else in the world. You can go on your own or book a snorkeling tour—there are opportunities everywhere.
