Home to Honolulu and almost 1 million people, Oahu is not going to top of anyone’s list for a peaceful, secluded holiday. It is, however, wonderful fun and if city life isn’t for you then you will be able to find somewhere to get peace and quiet. Typifying the Hawaii experience, Waikiki beach is known the world over and is actually made up of a number of beaches, each offering something different for families and bronzed beauties alike. The other parts of the island are pointedly different from Honolulu, with the Windward part being considerably wetter and with more varied flora. The Leeward coast is dryer and home to a burgeoning tourist trade while the North Shore is world famous for its enormous waves, and therefore legendary surfing.
As you would expect, there are numerous beaches around the island so it is worth planning in advance for what type of beach experience you are seeking, whether it be busy or secluded. One of the best experiences you can have during your time here is taking part in a luau or traditional Hawaiian feast; the food on offer is indeed plentiful, delicious and predominantly a mixture of seafood and dried meats and although preparation may take a while, it is well worth the wait.
