For many visitors, Oahu is Hawaii. Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, Honolulu – all those names we instantly associate with Hawaii are on Oahu. Away from the famous surf beaches lined with holiday resorts and high-rises, rugged volcanic peaks tower over pineapple plantations and landmarks from Polynesian legends cast their special magic.

Day 1: Tour US History
World War Two history is tangibly linked to Oahu and the events that took place at Pearl Harbor. Pay your respects to the crew who died aboard USS Arizona in December 1941 and step aboard USS Missouri to get an idea of shipboard life. Visit the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center to see film footage from 1941, as well as moving artifacts recovered after the attack. The focus is on the aerial battlefield at the Pacific Aviation Museum, with its collection of rare vintage US and Japanese aircraft.

Day 2: Surfin' Safari
Feeling inspired by watching wannabe Kelly Slaters tame Oahu’s monstrous waves? Then why not grab the chance to learn to surf in Oahu? You can have a one-on-one lesson with your instructor, or join a small group of four students. The best beaches to practice your surfing moves are Waikiki, North Shore spots like Puena Point and Cockroach Bay on the east coast. And to see how whales surf the waves, sail around Oahu on a whale-watching cruise to spot humpbacks and dolphins hang ten.

Day 3: Hawaiian Landscapes
Discover Oahu’s rainforest heart, on a guided walk through Polynesian forests of rosy-red hibiscus flowers and golden honeycreepers. Don’t miss a stroll through the Valley of the Rainbows, to see the iridescent rainbow effect of sunlight reflected on water. The best place to stroll through fields of pineapples is the legendary Dole Plantation, with its cute tourist train and world’s largest maze. And if you’re an early riser, wake up before dawn to travel to Diamond Head Crater to see the sun rise over Waikiki.
