Oahu Sightseeing – Finding the Island’s Best Sites
North Shore
The North Shore is one of the most famous stretches of beaches in the world, and for good reason. In the summer months, the waters are generally calm, allowing for a nice place to swim. In the winter months, swells hit the coast, creating some of the biggest waves you may ever see. No matter when you visit, a day or two on the North Shore should be high on your to do list.

South Shore
The North Shore of the island is very green, while the South Shore is more of a desert, with a rocky shoreline and rugged terrain featured prominently as you make your way around the southern part of Oahu. There are many sites to see around this part of the island, including lookout points like the Halona Blowhole and Makapu’u Lookout, amazing beaches like Sandy Beach and Waimanalo, and well-known attractions like Diamond Head and Koko Head.

Windward Oahu
The secret is out on this part of the island, located on the island’s eastern shores. The towns of Kailua and Kaneohe highlight Windward Oahu, and there are neat places to visit like Byodo-In Temple, Nu’uanu Pali Lookout that overlooks the Windward side, and more beaches than you can count. For a day that you will not forget, head to Kailua early and lounge on Kailua Beach or Lanikai Beach, recognized often as two of the best beaches in the country.

Island Lookout Points
We’ve mentioned previously, but these are too good to miss. Sites like La’ie Point, Halona Lookout, Pali Lookout, Makapu’u Lookout, and so many more are scattered all around the island, and are stops commonly made on Oahu Sightseeing Tours. You will not believe the views of the island and the vast Pacific Ocean from some of the amazing points found around Oahu.
