Vacation Homes and Rentals on the Island of Oahu
Beauty is never far from your accommodation on the beautiful island of Oahu. Beachside villas with views of the ocean, or luxury mountain retreats are some of the wonderful vacation rentals available here. Immerse yourself in the laid-back beach culture, sample a spectrum of delicious food and drink, and experience the Polynesian heritage of Hawaii's most populous island.
A Feast of Flavors
Traditional Hawaiian foods, such as poi, made from taro root, and poke have grown in popularity beyond their roots here. The understated poi is highlighted as a gastronomical delight at the Waiahole Poi Factory in Kaneohe. Poke, a Hawaiian seafood mainstay, is thinly sliced raw yellowfin tuna that can be combined with a variety of delicious ingredients. Nobody does poke better than Honolulu's Ahi Assassins Fish Co, a tiny spot that's big on flavor.
When it's hot and you're needing to cool down, try the local delicacy of shave ice. This simple treat is superb and made extra special when served with toppings like lilikoi (passionfruit) cream. Make sure you get your shave ice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream at the bottom. Island Shave Ice and Creamery is one of the local favorites.
Discover Hawaiian History and Culture
Rich in Polynesian culture, Oahu has also played an important role in modern American and world history. The USS Arizona Memorial is part of the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. Dedicated to the battleship that was sunk during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, it sits astride the remains of the ship itself. It's a somber reminder of the battle that brought the US into the Second World War.
Explore Oahu and Hawaii's history, culture and unique environment with a visit to the Bishop Museum on Honolulu's Bernice Street. The museum boasts a fine collection of Hawaiian artifacts and hosts permanent and temporary exhibitions. With a hands-on scientific lab and an observatory onsite, it's a wonderful place for the family to visit.
You can't come to Oahu without appreciating the surfing culture that's a way of life here. The ultimate surfing competition, the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, takes place in November on some of Honolulu's finest beaches. This competition attracts only the best pro surfers who make surfing into an art form on the rolling, churning waves offshore.
Laid-back lounges, tiki bars, all-night clubs, and restaurants catering to every taste make Oahu the place to enjoy your vacation nights out. Honolulu is undoubtedly the party capital of the island, but Waikiki is certainly a contender for the title. For more relaxed evenings, Hawaiian luaus are a showcase of native local culture, accompanied by a range of traditional food and drink. One of the finest luau spectacles is at the Polynesian Cultural Center, which highlights several different Pacific Island cultures.
A truly memorable evening onboard a sunset cruise can be as romantic or raucously fun as you wish. Enjoy a cruise on the ocean with your loved one, and dine in style as you watch the sun sink into the azure sea. Alternatively, dance the night away to the sounds of a top DJ after sunset and see the lights of Oahu from your unique perspective aboard ship.
Experience Oahu With the Locals
The first Friday of every month is the time to head to Honolulu's Chinatown. The First Friday Honolulu Art Walk is a night where galleries, cafes, boutiques, and restaurants open their doors to exhibit art works. These venues offer a variety of free entertainment, snacks, and drinks. The event starts from 5pm, and afterwards you can move on to some of Chinatown's trendiest nightspots to finish off your evening.
If you're planning your vacation in February, head to Honolulu's Victoria Ward Park to experience the Ukulele Picnic. Join thousands of players from all over the world who come together for a jam session under the majestic island skies. It's a Hawaiian party like no other. There's also a more formal Ukulele Festival every July in Kapiolani Park that attracts over 10,000 visitors.
Oahu's most unusual annual event is also its most popular. The Waikiki Spam Jam, which takes place each April, is a multi-day festival in homage to Spam—the processed meat that's a cornerstone of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine. Local restaurants serve up their greatest Spam creations to tantalize your taste buds. There's also live music, craft booths, and merchandise stands available at this free event.
