Return Visit to Oahu

Double Lines

You haven’t fully experienced Oahu until you’ve returned. Travel beyond Waikiki to off-the-beaten-path areas that give you a different point of view of Oahu. Head to the beautiful Windward Coast  and kayak along Kailua Beach, discover a Japanese temple in the Valley of the Temples or find adventure at the Kualoa Ranch. You’ve had a taste of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, now eat like a local in Kapahulu, just minutes from Waikiki. Spend a few hours and take a scenic hike to the top of Leahi (Diamond Head) or the panoramic eastern tip of Honolulu on the Makapuu Lighthouse trail. Then cool off indoors and learn even more about Hawaii’s culture in Oahu’s amazing museums, from the Bishop Museum to the Honolulu Museum of Art and Shangri La. A whole new world awaits you on your return visit to Oahu.
