Oahu, otherwise known as ‘the gathering place’ is home to Hawaii’s largest population. It’s the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands and is charactered by a blend of historical traditions with modern trends, which creates an artistically diverse and interesting place to visit. Oahu is home to the  typical Hawaiian scenery you’d expect – expansive white sands beaches, crystal blue oceans, and palm-tree-lined pathways – so you’ll certainly be living the Hawaiian dream on your honeymoon here.

On Oahu, Hawaii’s timeless beauty blends with the modern luxuries of today. Swim in the warm waters of world-famous Waikiki one moment, then enjoy the dramatic mountain views of the Nuuanu Pali Lookout another. Watch the surfers on the legendary North Shore by day, then dance the night away in vibrant nightlife spots around Honolulu.

The beaches are a major feature of Oahu and draw tourists to the island from around the world – especially for its great ocean weaves. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a relaxed afternoon sunbathing on the sand, thrilling water activities, or a romantic sunset experience with your new spouse, you’re sure to find a spot that ticks the boxes. Waikiki beach is certainly the most famous beach of them all, in which you can try out a whole host of water sports including snorkelling, canoeing, windsurfing, jet-skiing, parasailing – the list goes on.

Once you’ve experienced ocean sports, there are also plenty of activities to enjoy on land to keep your adrenaline rushing. Spend an afternoon trekking to the top of the volcanic crater of Leahi, or take a morning walk along the Ala Moana beach park. Pick up your golf clubs to score your hole in one of the island’s top golf courses or envision yourself in a Hollywood movie by riding on a horse through the lush green fields.

As for nightlife? The capital of Hawaii – Honolulu – is where the party’s at. It won’t be long until you find entertainment that’s just up your street.
