Travel Tuesday - Oahu HI

My norm for the last several years has been travel the Hawaiian islands at least every other year, more frequent if I can afford the make the trip. I have visited five of the major islands and was looking forward a return next year Kauai, which I haven’t been for a number of years. Unfortunately CoVid has squashed those plans. I don’t want spend hours each way planes or in airports. I will wait until this has calmed down more before making such ambitious travel plans.

My first trip Hawaii was Oahu, staying at the famed Hilton Hawaiian Village. I choose Oahu because I felt this would be the only time in my lifetime I’d see Hawaii. I wanted to make certain I saw Pearl Harbor. Little did I know I’d fall in love with the islands and that I’d work my ass off to get back to them

Since that first trip I’ve learned the Oahu is the most commercialized of the islands with all the expensive shops and the fanciest restaurants. If you want cosmopolitan Hawaii, this is your island.

I prefer the more laid back feel of the other islands myself. I’ve stayed on Oahu twice and visited via island hopper a couple of more times when traveling with friends but staying on another island. It never fails someone will travel with me but hasn’t seen Pearl Harbor, which is almost a must do if you’ve come this far and may never return.

Generally island hopping is easy enough and doesn’t cost that much (may have changed since I last did this). Take the early AM flight over, rent a car, spend the afternoon at Pearl then grab a nice dinner somewhere and take a late flight back to the island you’re staying on. One time we booked a one night stay on an island hop, just so we could relax and enjoy the night life offered in Waikiki.

I don’t really plan on returning to Oahu for vacation. A nice island but VERY crowded. Other than the shopping and restaurants, it’s best feature is the less developed north shore where the big waves come in. There was a grocery store across from the beach and a beautiful little park. It was perfect for grabbing everything for a picnic lunch, relaxing by the ocean and catching some rays. The swimming on this side of the island is not good. A really strong current makes it very dangerous unless you are a strong swimmer and know what you’re doing. I left the water sports to the many surfers practicing their skills on this more remote area of Oahu.

At any r here are some of the photos from those<b> trips.</font></b>

Excellent post McJust, very informative thanks.

The islands have always appealed, but the commercialism has prevented me from travelling there so far. Your tips will help me plan a trip if ever this outbreak is brought under control.

Pull ma finger.........

The big island and Kauai are the least commercialized. The big island can seem very remote at times and is very diversified. It actually has snow at different times of the year, but it’s recommended you rent a 4 wheel drive to reach it. So I’m theory p, if you’re there at the right time, you can have a snowball fight in the morning and swimming in the ocean in the afternoon.
