Top 5 things to do in Oahu, Hawaii

Oahu is an amazing island to spend some relaxing days but it’s the perfect place to really marvel at cultural sites, attractions and different beautiful areas for a complete travel experience. Besides the area of ​​the capital Honolulu, the island is divided into four other regions: the Windward Coast, the coastal area to the east with beaches and green areas, the North Shore, the north coast of surfing, the Leeward Coast, the area to the west with rural landscapes, beaches and golf courses, and Central Oahu, the central area with its fertile valleys, sugar cane fields and pineapple plantations. Today we are going to show you the best 5 things to do in Oahu for a trip to remember!

Oahu, Hawaii 1

Visiting the cultural highlights is something you should totally consider to make the most of your time here and to learn something more about art, history and the places’ identity. For example you should pay a visit to the Contemporary Museum (to marvel at art and due to its location, to really relax and admire the view of Honolulu from a unique perspective), A visit to the forest botanical garden is another beautiful thing to do to full immerse into nature and switch it to the explorative side.

Honolulu

Living the local events is another must. The most famous event in Oahu, outside Honolulu, is certainly the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing held in the North Shore in November and December. This is a surfing competition that sees the best surfers in the world compete. Two other events deserve attention and are of great local appeal: the feast in memory of King Kamehameha that is celebrated around mid-June in Kamehameha Day and her competitions (the typical flower necklace) that take place on May 1st during Lei Day. Part in mass for the triumph of colours that flows from it and the curiosity to take part in events completely different from their traditions.

As for the food you just can’t leave Oahu without even trying local dishes! Prepare your belly as this island has so much to offer!! We point out Halewa Joe’s offering dishes based on fish, meat and local products inspired by the Pacific islands. There are two locations (Haiku Gardens-Kaneohe and 66-011 Kamehameha Hwy.-Haleiwa). In Kaneohe the restaurant is surrounded by beautiful gardens and is an ideal place for ceremonies, while in Haleiwa, in a casual setting, the restaurant overlooks the ocean and offers live entertainment with evening parties on weekends. The Haiwalea Beach House (62-540 Kamehameha Hwy.-Haleiwa), in the North Shore, is located opposite the Ali’i Beach and has a beautiful ocean view from its patio. It offers a wide selection of fish dishes but there are also sandwiches and meat

Connecting with the locals is a must. The inhabitants of Hawaii are proud of their roots, their culture and the wonders of nature that have been given to them and are happy to share this wealth with visitors. For this reason it is difficult to leave O’hau without thinking of returning and with the curiosity to discover the other “sisters” of the archipelago, each with its own individuality. The O’hau market is the right place to live like a local, to shop for some local items and of course to keep things authentic, even food!

Oahu is a wonderful starting point for a wider exploration. A road trip could be the perfect option for you to really explore the intimate hidden side of this island and to create a little trip into trip for a wider complete experience. Even if you want to just go for a beach tour, this is going to blow your mind!
