Honolulu is the capital city of Oahu and is the cultural, industrial, commercial, and governmental center of Hawaii, with Waikiki Beach the epicentre of the tourist industry. It is a thriving world-class city, with nearly one million people in its metropolitan area. Oahu is the most popular of the Hawaiian Islands and it’s easy to understand why – there’s so much to do on Oahu!
With Waikiki as a central hub, you can explore the legendary North Shore of Oahu or head to the east side of the island snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, a protected marine sanctuary with tons of colorful fish. Oahu offers just the right amount of diversity for the adventurous as well as the cautious visitor. Thrill-seekers can skydive at Mokuleia while daydreamers can relax peacefully on the beach.
