Known as ‘the gathering place’, Oahu is home to the State capital of Honolulu and world-famous Waikiki Beach. From world-class shopping and dining to historic places such as Pearl Harbor and Iolani Palace as well as more than 100 surf spots, Oahu offers a plethora of pursuits. The diversity of attractions and activities you’ll find here is remarkable – everything from nightclubs and architectural landmarks to championship golf courses and lush green hiking trails. Here are three awesome reasons Aqua-Aston recommends you visit Oahu.
You can workout with a view
Diamond Head State Monument is featured in part of the opening scene in Hawaii 5-0 and is one of Hawaii’s most recognised icons. Get your sweat on by climbing the summit for panoramic island views perfect for a selfie or two. An easy five-minute drive from Waikiki, the crater is close enough to explore at your own leisurely pace.
Know the local scene
For an urban Oahu experience, visit Chinatown’s up-and-coming food and art scene right in the heart of the Honolulu financial district. Visit The Pig and the Lady for modern dishes with Vietnamese sensibilities, or the new Senia just next door, showcasing Hawaii’s bounty via a collaboration between two veterans of Thomas Keller’s legendary Per Se. Downtown Honolulu is also home to some of Oahu’s most historic landmarks for those modern explorers to trek from the present through the past, including the towering King Kamehameha I statue and the Hawaii State Capitol.
