Home to the Hawaiian state capital of Honolulu, Oahu is the third largest Hawaiian island but is also regarded as the most visited. Oahu is the most metropolitan area of Hawaii, with around 85% of the state’s population gathered on the island. The upside of this is that the island is the most lively and atmospheric in Hawaii, with bustling nightlife and glamorous entertainment options.
If it is the city life that you are after, then Honolulu provides the most legitimate metropolitan experience. The city is also home to the exclusive world-renowned Waikiki Beach and its glamorous lifestyle is well known across the globe. The city’s scenery is also much underrated, with some stunning fauna and flora settings.
Nevertheless, for those who wish to enjoy a quieter, relaxing Hawaiian experience, head to the North Shore and take time out to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of Turtle Bay. To understand the heritage of Hawaii and its fellow Polynesian countries, take a trip to the Polynesian Cultural Centre – the island’s most popular paid attraction to experience the culture of Hawaii, Maori New Zealand, Tonga, Samoa, Fiji, Tahiti, Rapa Nui and the Marquesas.
