From the moment you set foot off the plane, paradise welcomes you, and whether you’re just lounging on the beach or you’re out exploring the island, you will be in heaven!
Oahu is home to incredible scenery and visitor attractions like Pearl Harbor and the world-famous North Shore surf beaches, bringing in visitors from all over the world to the shores of the island that is nicknamed “The Gathering Isle.” No matter what you choose to do while visiting, you can guarantee that you will be blown away at what the island has to offer, and finding great sites and attractions all around the island is quite easy.
Some of our favorite destinations to visit include:
Located on Oahu’s Windward Coast in the quaint town of Kaneohe, the Byodo-In Temple is a peaceful retreat for anyone looking for some quiet time to reflect. Tucked into the Ko’olau Mountain Range, the grounds feature wild peacocks, koi ponds, and the replica of a Japanese Temple that dates back over 1,000 years. The version on Oahu is not quite that old, but still quite impressive.
There are so many popular lookout points around Oahu, and La’ie Point might be the best of them all. Located near the Polynesian Cultural Center on the North Shore, the lookout point shows off many of the natural features that makes the island great. Offshore islands, violent shore breaks, impressive rock formation, and even evidence of Mother Natures power. The giant hole that is seen in the middle of the islet located not too far from shore is the result of a hurricane that blew a hole right through the rock!
Way over on the South Shore, Makapu’u Lookout provides unrivaled views of Rabbit Island, Makapu’u Beach, the towering Ko’olau Mountains, and on clear days, views that stretch up the entire Windward Coast. A few minutes is all you will need here, so take lots of pictures, and take a moment to soak it all in.
There are a handful of blowholes around Hawaii, and the Halona Blowhole is the most famous one on Oahu. The result of thousands of years of volcanic activity and lava flows, the blowhole only becomes a blowhole when the ocean forces water through a small opening, shooting water spray high into the sky, sometimes as high as 50 feet! Make sure to check this stop out, and the views of Halona Cove, Sandy Beach, and the island’s South Shore are just added bonuses.
