Honolulu, Waikiki, Waimea Bay; just the names alone of Oahu's most famous destinations evoke a sense of wonder and paradise.
When it comes to Hawaii, Oahu holidays really have it all. Known as the heart of the islands and the best place to start if you're new to the state, Oahu offers everything Hawaii has to offer in one perfect package. Honolulu may be a vibrant beachside metropolis, with high rises, resorts, nightlife and shopping, but if it's wild rainforest you want from your holiday, and even wilder waves, then head to the North Shore which feels a world away from the beachfront of Honolulu and yet is it’s just over an hour's drive away. Diamond Head casts the perfect backdrop to Waikiki as you sip on pina coladas and admire the picture perfect view, while adventure lovers will want to head straight to the Windward Coast. If you're after something a little more sedate, but no less invigorating, head to Hanauma Bay which has some of the best snorkelling in the world and is perfect for beginners.
