Oahu Overview

When thinking of Hawaii, one conjures up images of beautiful white sandy beaches and stunning aquamarine colored waters, all against the backdrop of tall, swaying palm trees. That’s not far from the truth, as Hawaii is one of the most amazing islands in the world. Its breathtaking natural beauty is truly unique; you won’t find a place on earth where you can see a rain forest, a desert, snow capped mountains, black and green sandy beaches as well as crystal clear waters, all in one place. But you’ll certainly see all that and more in Hawaii.

In Hawaii, or “the big island” as locals refer to it, you can see the tallest peaks, the Mauna Keai and the world’s most active volcano, the Kilauea, and since most of the eruptions are gentler than that of volcanoes in other parts of the world, it allows for visitors to see them up close.

There’s much to see and do in Hawaii. Visitors can plan on enjoying major attractions, while visiting the four corners of the island. The West coast is home to fabulous resorts, the place to enjoy Kailua Kona’s magnificent views, a morning of snorkeling and an afternoon of heavenly shopping. To the east, visitors can appreciate rain forests, waterfalls and awe in the marvel of active volcanoes; you can also visit Hilo, a town drenched in history, national parks and important attractions like Parker Ranch, home to the first cowboys. Head to Na’alehu, a tiny town to the South, where you’ll find fabulous gift shops, and if you’re in the mood to learn the Hula dance or enjoy a great Luau, head north to Kohala.

Hawaii is the place to enjoy the most amazing activities; take a tour and see humpback whales or play with dolphins; visit interesting museums displaying relics from the early 1800s; visit botanical gardens that are home to colorful rare flora; watch as experienced fishermen catch a one thousand pound marlin, or relax on a quiet beach; in Hawaii you’ll find green sands from a semi-precious metal called ovaline; you’ll also find pristine white sands or miles of black volcanic sand. Hawaii is also the ideal place for scuba diving, snorkeling, and more.

But if sun bathing on beautiful beaches is not the only outdoor activity you seek, note that Hawaii is also the ideal place for great shopping and dining. Hawaii is home to incredible shopping centers, as beautiful as the scenery around. You’ll find imported designer names as well as fine clothing made on the island. In Hawaii, you’ll find one-of-a-kind gifts. You’ll find delicacies native of Hawaii like its renowned Kona coffee, Macadamia nuts, guava jams, and special wines. Hawaii is definitely a shopper’s dream.

With its privileged location, Hawaii is also the place for the best local seafood; outside of the freshest daily catch, Hawaii restaurants offer foods from numerous nationalities, and of course the famed Luau. Dine al fresco in romantic settings, casual spots or great cafes.

Once you visit Hawaii you’ll understand why it has been referred to as a tropical paradise.
