The aloha spirit is alive and well in the surf capital of the world. Oahu is a heady whirlwind of unbroken waves, wild flowers, prehistoric rainforests, and outdoor bliss. For surfers, Hawaii is the ultimate calling card - the birthplace of legends and surf lore that has been passed down throughout the ages. Yet beyond the breaks, Oahu offers so much more. Families will swoon at the chance to watch migrating whales pass in the waters, to walk in the footsteps of Jurassic Park film sets, and to hula the night away. Couples will bliss out in honeymoon havens, and friends will fall in love with helicopter rides, adrenaline sports and energetic nightlife scene that blooms in paradise.
For surfers, you can’t ask for more than Oahu can give. The famous North Shore is enough to make you weak at the knees, the Banzai Pipeline has been swallowing surfers since the beginning of time, and Waimea Bay is the place to try and tame giants. Closer to Honolulu and you have some softer, mellow rides for those who are just starting to get to grips with their paddle out.
Resorts in Oahu are geared towards a good time vibe. Modern, sassy and with a grownup edge, you will love having all the mod cons and sublime service you can expect when travelling in a USA state. In short, Oahu is always on the right wavelength.
