What Are The 5 Best Oahu Sites for the Whole Family?

            Oahu is a fantastic vacation site that the entire family is sure to enjoy; explorers of this warm, welcoming, and beautiful island will find delicious local foods, the historical Pearl Harbor, and many fascinating natural and ecological wonders. With several Oahu tours and activities from which to choose, every member of family will be left with plenty of mesmerizing memories that will last a lifetime. 


            For the history buff in your family, visiting Pearl Harbor is a must. Pearl Harbor is essential to recent American History, and The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center urges its visitors to not only learn but to experience history. For example, still visible at this site are bullet holes from the Japanese Zeroes’ attack on Ford Island. One of Oahu’s most popular attractions, Pearl Harbor is the home to several historical memorials, including the USS Arizona Memorial and the USS Oklahoma Memorial. The Pacific Aviation Museum is also located at this site.
            After an exciting and educational trip to Pearl Harbor, you and your family may want to hit the beach! Hanauma Bay is one of the most popular sites for snorkeling in Hawaii and the top choice in Oahu. Perfect for beginning divers and those new to snorkeling because of its protection from the open ocean’s currents, Hanauma Bay is home to rich sea life and brightly colored corals.

            Every member of your family will be in awe over the Halona Blowhole. Located on Oahu’s South Shore, this natural spectacle occurs when swells fill an ancient lava cave, shooting water straight up and through the blowhole in the rocky coast. For those who admire the power of nature, this site is breathtaking and unforgettable.
            The birthplace of modern surfing, Waikiki, is absolutely a wonderful spot to attempt surfing for the first time. Waikiki Beach is equipped with plenty of shops from which you and your family can rent surfboards, and many of these shops offer lessons. For the more experienced surfer in your family, Oahu’s North Shore is the ideal location. Famous for big wave surfing and its locations like Sunset Beach and the Banzai Pipeline, Oahu’s North Shore is Hawaii’s greatest surfing location. However, the North Shore is not solely for surfers; the town of Haleiwa is famous for its local farms and old country feel. Schedule a tour today by calling Discover Hawaii Tours at 808-670-3743.
