All our itineraries are tailor-made to your exact requirements, but if you would like some ideas for itineraries and guide prices, please click HERE

 

At the heart of O'ahu is Honolulu and the world famous Waikiki Beach, a mecca for sunworshippers.  From the drama of Diamond Head, a long extinct volcano, to the rugged scenery of the South Eastern Coast, O'ahu has much more to offer than just beautiful beaches of Waikiki.

 

O'ahu has the largest population in the state of Hawaii and it follows, therefore, that there is a higher concentration of hotels, restaurants and activities centred here.  The heart of the island is Honolulu and Waikiki beach, a truly chic international city and resort area, boasting world class restaurants with virtually every cuisine represented.  Combine this with superb hotels, extensive cultural and recreational activities, exciting nightlife and this is the taste of Honolulu.

 

Diamond Head, the dramatic backdrop east of Waikiki offers the chance for hikers to climb to the crater rim and view the panoramic view of Waikiki and beyond.  Travelling along the South Eastern Coast, visitors pass rugged scenery which is punctuated by natural wonders such as Hanauma Bay, Hanauma Underwater Park and Halona Blowhole, a spectacular geyser.  There are vantage points where, when the light is right, Lanai and Molokai can be seen.  Further along the coast are the beach parks of Sandy Makapuu, a favourite with bodysurfers.  A fascinating glimpse of the colourful marine life surrounding the island is provided by the sea life at Makapuu Point.

 

On the west coast of O'ahu, backed by the Koolau Mountains, is an area packed with countless beaches.  The Polynesian Cultural Centre set midway along the windward coast gives an insight into other Polynesian cultures including those of Tahiti, Samoa and Fiji.  Further round the coast leads you to the famous 'North Shore' - surfing capital of the world and the historic town of Haleiwa.  Haleiwa was originally home to ancient Hawaiian communities that inhabited the banks of the Anahulu stream.  Hawaiian royalty spent the summer months here enjoying the beaches and cooling trade winds, as many visitors do today.
