Oahu Travel Guide

Hawaii is one of the worlds most sought after vacation destinations. I personally have been to Hawaii over 8 times. It is one of the most relaxing places on earth. There are tons of cultural experiences mixed with breath taking views. This is one vacation you don’t want to miss out on.

Diamond Head is a volcanic tuff cone on the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu and known to Hawaiians as Lēʻahi, most likely from lae ‘browridge, promontory’ plus ʻahi ‘tuna’ because the shape of the ridgeline resembles the shape of a tuna’s dorsal fin. This is an awesome hike with breath taking views at the top!

Hanauma is a marine embayment formed within a tuff ring and located along the southeast coast of the Island of Oʻahu in the Hawaii Kai neighborhood of East Honolulu, in the Hawaiian Islands. Hanauma is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Island and has suffered somewhat from overuse. But with the implementation of the rules and training video before allowing tourists to swim it has stopped much of the wear and tear from overuse. Check out the awesome snorkeling and see if you can spot a sea turtle.

Pearl Harbor is a lagoon harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, west of Honolulu. It has been long visited by the Naval fleet of the United States, before it was acquired from the Hawaiian Kingdom by the U.S. with the signing of the Reciprocity Treaty of 1875. Check out the magnificent ships and take a tour of of the amazing Naval Base.

Manoa Falls is a 150-foot waterfall located in the Manoa Falls Trail in Honolulu, Hawaii. The hike is great with an awesome view! But swimming in the pool below the waterfall is highly discouraged because there is a threat of becoming infected with Leptospirosis. So if you go on this hike, check out the views, and take a selfie but avoid swimming in the water at the end of the hike.

Listed by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Places You Can Play,” and ranked seventh on Golflink.com’s “Top 100 United States Golf Courses” in 2008-2012, Ko’olau Golf Club has earned a place as one of the most unique and beautiful golf experiences in the United States. 
I personally have played the Ko’olau Golf course, it is by far the nicest course I have played the views are breath taking and the course is hard. Pro Tip: Unless you are a very experienced golfer, take extra golf balls. The average golfer looses between 5-10 golf balls on this course. So play relaxed golf and try to have fun.
