Oahu Travel Tips

Oahu, known simply as "The Gathering Place," is Hawaii's most diverse and exciting island. While visiting Honolulu, Hawaii's capital city, you can walk through historic Chinatown, surf peeling waves and party the night away on Waikiki Beach, and experience history at the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor. Nearby Diamond Head, a volcanic tuff cone, has tons of hiking trails and a beautiful beach park. Just a short distance outside of Honolulu, Oahu's countryside is full of rainforests, pineapple farms, waterfalls, and sugar cane fields. The north shore of Oahu, home to Banzai Pipeline, Waimea Bay, and Sunset Beach, is one of the world's most famous surfing destinations. In the quiet town of Laie, on Oahu's northeast coast, visitors experience Hawaii's vibrant history at the Polynesian Cultural Center. Our Honolulu condo rentals at popular resorts have ocean views and immediate access to the turquoise water of Waikiki Beach.

Enjoy a sunset hula performance at Waikiki's Kuhio Beach, escape into Oahu's laid-back upcountry, watch the best surfers in the world ride the big waves of Waimea Bay, and step back in time at the Iolani Palace, Hawaii's original royal residence. Vacation Rentals by Choice Hotels™ beach houses and condo rentals in Oahu give you the keys to Hawaii's most popular island.
