Oahu (Honolulu) Activities Review
Oahu, popularly known as “The Gathering Place”, is where modern luxury meets historical richness. Widely known for the attack at Pearl Harbor in World War II, Oahu is now a visitor haven, bringing in roughly 5 million visitors each year, and for great reasons!
Much like the island of Maui and Big Island, there are generally a wide variety of popular activities to participate in while visiting Oahu.
One major activity people enjoy doing while visiting Oahu is to attend a luau. Luaus are a wonderful activity that immerses people in the Hawaiian culture by watching hula, eating delicious local style food, listening to Hawaiian music, and even participating in activities such as lei making or learning to hula dance!
Another key activity people enjoy participating in while on vacation in Oahu is to take a helicopter tour. A lot of the beauty of Oahu can only be seen from the air and even if you are familiar with a location, you will be shocked at how different it will look from a couple thousand feet above. If you’d like to take an air tour of the island, be sure to check out Paradise Helicopter’s “Best of Oahu” tour!
A final major activity that is done in Oahu and is strongly recommended is visiting the Pearl Harbor memorial site. More than 1.5 million people visit the memorial each year. While at the monument, you will be taken on a historic journey back to 1941, when Pearl Harbor was attacked and can go out to the site of the sunken USS Arizona.
Other activities that are recommended that many people have enjoyed include surfing lessons, horseback or ATV riding at the famous Kualoa Ranch, snorkeling, and even cage diving with sharks!
