    Not as difficult as it looks, but you must be able to climb steps and not have a fear of heights. Definitely bring water and wear sneakers.

    The North Shore has an abundance of great beaches and surf spots, as well as some great local businesses. It's a mecca for the surfing world. Traffic can be a bit heavy, even outside of the normal surfing season.

    Stunning place! Despite the tourists, the area is calm and reflective. Great place to check out that is different from the a "roadside tourist trap." There's a beautiful carved Buddha statue, love wildlife in the surrounding ponds, and very helpful staff. If you wish to ring the bell, make that your first stop, as the line can get quite long at times.

    Note: You will be required to remove your shoes if you wish to enter the temple.

    Beautiful clean beach with facilities. Blue turquoise waters and good swimming. It is next to a small green park. Plenty of parking too. I loved it.

    Lagoons were crystal clear and warmer than the ocean water. We had seals come in at the Aulani resort. Few locals and mostly resort guests. great views.

    It is tough to find parking but the beach is absolutely beautiful. The water is the brightest blue I've ever seen and the view was stunning. If you have the patience to find parking this beach is worth it.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our tour- learning about the history of Hawaii from a friendly tour guide who took his time explaining everything to us.

    Get your reservations early for pearl harbor. The standby line was backed way up. Talked to a lady said she waited over 2hrs in hit sun.

    There are 2 museums and they are very good. They are free to enter and take roughly 30 mins to go through.

    You get about 30mins at the memorial site itself. Very cool and well done.

    This beach at sunset was straight-up magical. We happened to be driving home for the day and decided to stop here to watch the sunset. Between the sounds of the crashing waves, the soft sand, and the stunning view it was all beyond perfect. 10/10 recommend this beach for a romantic sunset picnic.

    The view was great from this lookout spot, just be aware that it is $7 to park just to spend a few minutes looking and taking photos. Not saying it's not worth it...just FYI.

    Driving from Northshore and what a view. Stopped to take pictures as this is more of what we thought the Northshore would be like.

    This is a must if you love beautiful scenery, mountains and exotic plants. We also saw Mongoose and a lot of birds. There’re no entrance fees or parking fees.

    Got some great bargains at GAP (next door), Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger. Joined up with Simon Premium Outlets and downloaded the app, which happened to give me an extra 20% off on that day (offers change all the time). Clothing is quite conservative though, so not much for teenagers. Lots of free parking. Open until late.

    This was a very informative and interesting tour of the only royal palace in the U.S.! We took a docent led tour and it was definitely the way to go. Our guide provided great history of the palace and the island in general. After the tour, we were able to explore the grounds and the self-guided exhibits in the basement. There was plenty of free parking.

    Ka’ena Point State Park is a remote coastline park that overs hiking, picnicking, fishing and sea glass searching. It wraps around the northwest corner of Oahu and has two sections: the Keawa’ula Section on the west side and the Mokuleia on the north shore. There is no way to drive from one section to the other. We visited the Mokuleia section. A marked trail will take you to the westernmost point of Oahu is Kaena Point. Ka’ena means “the heat” and was named after the brother of Pele, the goddess of volcanoes and fire. According to legend, this is the place where souls of ancient Hawaiians would jump off in the spirit world to unite with their ancestors. The hike is 2.7 miles one-way along a volcanic coast with tide pools. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.
