How many Hawaii activities have you circled for your trip? Most likely, you’ve found quite a few that you want to take part in, and the reality of it is that you’ll have to make some tough cuts at some point. We know how appealing all of the fun activities are, and figuring out which you HAVE to do is going to be the hardest part of your vacation. Since your Oahu luau will definitely be on your final to do list, you’ll want to find activities that compliment your luau and offer a completely different experience so that you are able to enjoy the different things to do in Hawaii.
Water activities are as much apart of the Hawaiian Islands as volcanoes are, and Oahu offers so many great options for having fun in the warm tropical waters of the Pacific. Fun things to do like snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, taking a surf lesson along Waikiki or on the North Shore, and even renting a stand-up paddle board are among the most popular water activities and any would make a great addition to your luau, and our recommendation is to head to Hanauma Bay (or another great snorkel spot) and take in the diverse underwater world.
Not to be outdone by the ocean, Oahu’s land activities are top notch. One of the favorites of locals and visitors is hiking, and with countless hiking trails around the island, you have your choice of trails that range from very easy to difficult, and everything in between. A hike to the summit of Diamond Head is great little hike for all ages, and it’s quite easy and short, plus it offers stunning views of Waikiki Beach and the South Shore of the island. As one of the most iconic landmarks in Hawaii, a hike up Diamond Head is the perfect compliment to your luau, and if you head up for sunrise, you have the rest of the day to explore or hang on the beach!
History is everywhere in Hawaii, and learning the long and often tragic history of the island will deepen your appreciation for the islands and provide an understanding of the events that have shaped the history of Hawaii. Visit Pearl Harbor for a lesson in world history, marking the events that launched the United States into World War II and forever changed the island of Oahu, while taking in the museums and memorials of Pearl Harbor. Then, take a trip through Hawaiian history during a drive through historic Downtown Honolulu, where some of the most significant events in Hawaiian history have taken place.
While you’re here, be sure to make the most of your time and do as much as you can. The island is made to be explore and uncovered and by choosing Hawaii activities that offer different experiences, you’ll see and do it all. Not only are there many great choices for activities, there are many great choices for your Oahu luau, so you’re sure to create a memorable experience for your trip to Oahu.
