Activities & Attractions

Oahu is a mecca for exploration, with panoramas that steal your breath nearly everywhere you go. The hiking trails alone would be enough to fill your days with plenty of exercise and scenery. Deeply channeled flanks of the Koolau and Waianae Mountain ranges offer some of the most spectacular vistas. Be on the lookout for tropical birds and waterfalls as you hike or bike through lush valleys. Take a drive through the pineapple fields to the North Shore to watch the winter waves pound the sand at Waimea Bay, or visit the small surf town of Haleiwa. And some of the best Oahu activities are by the sea. 

Try windsurfing or kite surfing at Diamond Head or Kailua Beach. Take a sunset sail off Waikiki Beach, go sport fishing, or behold a sunken ship by submarine. Oahu activities will not disappoint. And you'll find plenty of them right here on some of the best surfing, diving, and boogie boarding beaches in the Islands. And, of course, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay is a must-do. Looking for an adrenaline rush? Get behind the wheel of a Formula One race boat or an all terrain vehicle (ATV). Zip across the waters of Hawaii Kai on a jet ski or banana boat “water rocket.” Or go skydiving at Mokuleia and free-fall 5,000 feet for a completely different view of the island.
