Oahu

Named the Gathering Place of the Hawaiian Islands, the Island of Oahu with the city of Honolulu is the exciting center of the Aloha State.

Famous Waikiki Beach, the heart of Oahu and a world class resort area, offers outstanding dining, entertainment, shopping, attractions of many kinds, and hotel accommodations to fit any budget.

Down the shore from Waikiki Beach is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Hawaii, Diamond Head. This extinct volcano crater sits solemnly above another fabulous beach filled with sun worshippers and surfers.

Beyond Waikiki, Oahu becomes a quietly enchanting island. There are 23 state parks on the ocean and throughout the interior. On the North Shore, the Pacific Ocean's deep strength is shown where massive waves pound the shore in an unforgettable rhythm.

History buffs can trace the million year story of the islands on Oahu, or relive more recent history at the US Navy Base in Pearl Harbor.
