An Island of Diverse Wonders Awaits Your Clients
O‘ahu’s natural beauty, warm aloha spirit, and authentic Hawaiian culture create a magical backdrop for one-of-a-kind vacations. The island is truly the ideal combination of ease and exotic. With loads of flights from the mainland, O‘ahu is a breeze to reach. Once on O‘ahu, your clients will be able to explore an east-meets-west, multicultural jewel that sparkles and shines, revealing different facets of historic and contemporary Hawai‘i. O‘ahu is home to easily accessible towns and country experiences—the energy and excitement of Honolulu and Waikiki, the laid back charms of quiet beach towns, and the incomparable splendor of emerald peaks and golden shorelines—all infused with the vibrant multicultural traditions of Hawai‘i. From the first aloha and welcoming lei, to colorful festivals celebrating art, music, and food; and to hidden valleys where ancient Hawaiians once thrived, O‘ahu is “The Heart of Hawai‘i.”
Create Inspiring Itineraries In Town and Around O‘ahu
Because O‘ahu has so many attractions and activities, you’ll find it easy to customize itineraries that match your clients’ interests and passion points. Waikiki is a gleaming oceanfront resort where Hawai‘i’s ali‘i (royalty) reigned and rode the waves for centuries. Today, locals and visitors surf and paddle outrigger canoes in the aqua surf, stroll along Kalakaua Avenue, savor globally inspired cuisine, and climb iconic Le‘ahi (Diamond Head) for awe-inspiring panoramas.
Lively Honolulu is a rich repository of Hawaiian culture and history. ‘Iolani Palace, the nation’s only royal residence, recalls the archipelago’s time as a kingdom, while Bishop Museum showcases the natural history and cultural heritage of Hawai‘i and the Pacific region. Chinatown, a historic immigrant gateway and hip arts district, is home to traditional noodle shops and cutting edge restaurants, along with authentic lei stands and trendsetting galleries.
Breathtaking natural wonders are a short drive away. Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, relaxing on Waimanalo Beach, and hiking the Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse trail await on the Windward Coast. Up on the fabled North Shore, where the world’s best surfers compete on epic winter waves, visitors soar on O‘ahu’s first zipline and discover the boutiques, galleries, and cafes in Hale‘iwa. West of Honolulu, the Leeward Coast beckons with secluded resorts, championship caliber golf, and wild, windswept shorelines.
