Oahu Map and Map of Oahu, Hawaii

big island description

"So much to see and so little time," is a frequent quote from visitors to Oahu, because many stay but a day or so, as 'The Gathering Place' as it's known, is often the springboard to the outer islands.

But for those who do linger, the Pearl Harbor Memorial, Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach, the Polynesian Cultural Center, shopping in the markets of Honolulu, and the crashing waves and surfers along the Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach are worth the extra time.

There's also fascinating Hawaiian history here, as well as great golf courses, endless white sand beaches and stunning natural vistas at every turn.

Oahu is Hawaii, so stay longer than planned.
