    Definitely worth the hike for the amazing views of Waikiki. The trail is well maintained combine with steps in the steeper areas. Need advance reservations.

    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.

    Very cool temple to visit in the North side of Oahu here. The atmosphere is beautiful and the architecture of this temple is unreal. Definitely worth checking out if you're in this side of the island.

    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.

    On our arrival day, we rented a vehicle and jettisoned over to the East side of the island to spend an afternoon at Lanakai Beach. Parking can be challenging, but the beach is spacious and filled with a mix of locals and tourists. The water is beautiful and the experience was worth revisiting.

    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.

    We arrived a little after 12 noon so could only visit the submarine museum and Battleship Missouri ($120 for 2). (Get there early if you want the all inclusive ticket at $90 a head which includes the aviation museum, etc). Submarine museum was ok. I think you have to be really interested In the subject to get the most out of it but the visit to the USS Bowfin was eye opening. Steeped in history and beautifully maintained with many pictures, etc to bring it to life. “Big Mo” stole the show though. It was a 10 min bus ride away. Shuttle comes every 10-15 minutes. Incredibly interesting with lots of narrative as you walk around (we spent nearly 2 hours). Everything from where they ate and slept, to bakery and postal office. Very respectfully done to both the US and Japanese military. The guns were HUGE and quite a sight. We went on a Sunday and wasn’t too busy but it was warm so take sun screen and water. Good shoes a must. You need to check your bag before entering ($6 + tax). Places to eat and drink inside. Would have loved to have seen the aviation museum - apparently you can still see shrapnel holes in the hanger, etc. Cool gift shop and you can buy a photo of you outside the ship (x1 $30 or x4 with different backgrounds and download for $42). Not your most cost effective trip but it all goes back in to the museum for maintenance and education. Easy to grab an Uber. $40 from Waikiki each way. Definitely worth a visit to understand more about the historic era of WWII

    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.

    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.

    The guided tour of the palace was very interesting and the palace itself is beautiful. We leaned a lot about the history of Hawaii. The staff were also extremely helpful to us when we accidentally booked for the wrong day.

    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.
