If you are staying on one of the following Hawaiian islands – Maui, Kauai or the Big Island – you might want to add a day trip to Oahu during your Hawaii vacation. Since the Hawaiian islands are located close to each other (a 30 to 45-minute flight gets you to a neighbor island), island hopping is on the list of many visitors to Hawaii.
The island of Oahu is nicknamed the “The Gathering Place” for a reason. It is where most visitors to Hawaii are headed. Oahu has something for everyone, the lively hustle and bustle of the city as well as a beautiful countryside. There are literally hundreds of things to do on Oahu.
Planning a visit to Oahu from a neighbor island is relatively easy. There are early morning flights that depart around 6 am, so by 7am you arrive in Honolulu. From the airport you can get a shuttle that will take you to the island’s most popular beachfront neighborhood of Waikiki, where you can swim at world-famous Waikiki Beach, visit Waikiki attractions or just spend a day browsing the numerous stores and restaurants.
Oahu private tour
If you prefer to do a more comprehensive tour of Oahu, you can do an Oahu private tour with Hawaii Turtle Tours. You can create your own Oahu private tour and focus on the things you like. For example, if you are into surfing and beaches, Hawaii Turtle Tours will take you to the world-famous North Shore of Oahu where you can visit popular surfing beaches, such as Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay, as well as the surfing town of Haleiwa. Or visit Laniakea Beach and say hello to Hawaiian green sea turtles napping on the beach. If you are a history buff, Hawaii Turtle Tours will take you to Pearl Harbor where you can see the Arizona Memorial and other points of interest. A private island tour lets you choose the stops and how long you want to stay. At the end of the day you will have seen the best of Oahu at your own pace.
