Our Hawaii Drive Guide Island Maps will help you find your way around the state’s most developed island to find historical landmarks as well as some of the islands’ most beautiful beaches and mountain ranges.
If you love the city as much as the country, you’ll love Oahu. The capital city of Honolulu offers world-famous Waikiki Beach as well as museums, eclectic restaurants, boutique and designer shopping, historic neighborhoods and even great nature hikes. Outside of the city, explore Pearl Harbor, the big-wave surf culture of the North Shore and miles of peaceful tropical beaches.
More than 3 million years old, Oahu has had plenty of time to sculpt dramatic coastal cliffs, perfect white sand beaches and pristine valleys. What’s not to love? And it’s all easy to see via rental car or tour van.
Here are our top five scenic landscapes you simply have to see.
- Waimanalo Beach
- Nuuanu Pali Lookout
- Kualoa Park/Mokolii Islet (Chinaman’s Hat)
