 Oahu Vacation Ideas

The island of Oahu in Hawaii is both beautiful and

diverse.  A majority of people are drawn here to 

the excitement of Waikiki Beach with its colorful

clubs and taste filled restaurants.

The island activities around Oahu range from 

surfing lessons and canoeing to swimming with the

dolphins and scuba diving.  No matter what you or

your family like to do on vacation, you can find

something for everyone on Oahu island.


Those that like adventure can choose from a wide

variety of water sports and land activities on 

Oahu.  If you would like to spend your vacation in

or near the water, you should try surfing, scuba 

diving, or windsurfing.  The land activities here

include hiking through rain forests, biking along

the mountain ranges, even parachuting.

If you happen to be staying on Waikiki Beach, there

are many shops that rent outrigger canoes, surf

boards, and other gear on the beach.  You can even

go to the Kapiolani Park for tennis, archery, and

even jogging.


Romantic beach vacations on Oahu Island range from

renewing your wedding vows to luxurious beach service

at one of the several hotels.  If you've never 

tasted pink beer or champagne, Mai Tai Bar is the

place you should check out.

If you would rather stay in a more secluded area, 

Kahala Mandarin Oriental is 10 minutes away from 

Waikiki Beach and offers a long sandy beach, great

service, and swimming with the dolphins - which is

something everyone is sure to enjoy.

Family beach vacations

Oahu is a destination that offers many different

activities for the entire family.  You can choose

from children's programs at Waikiki Beach hotels,

hands on programs, and a variety of watersports.

The Honolulu Zoo, the Waikiki Aquarium, and the 

See Life Park of Hawaii are just a few of the 

attractions the whole family can enjoy together.

The Waikiki Beach is shallow and water is calm

almost year round, especially in the winter months

when the surf stayes under three feet.  There are

certain parts of the beach that have a life guard

on duty watching over swimmers and surfers.


If you are interested in Hawaiian culture on your

beach vacation, Oahu Island offers a selection of

museums, historical attractions, and several 

exhibits.  With several villages and culture 

exhibits, you can learn anything you desire about

the culture of Hawaii.

When the time comes for your beach vacation, the 

island of Oahu is a dream come true.  The entire

family will love it here, with the island also being

perfect for just a lovers vacation.  If you've

never had the pleasure of going to Hawaii - there 

is no better time than now.
