We're planning a trip to Oahu and the big Island. So far we have plans to see Pearl Harbor and a helicopter trip over an active volcano. Beyond that, do you have any "must-do" activities or favorite restaurants?
I was on Oahu for 3 days about 15 years ago. We rented a jeep and drove around the Island, went snorkeling, hung out at Waikiki beach, went to Pearl Harbor, and BBQ'd on the beach. Don't recall any restaurants, but we did have a traditional Hawaiian luau one evening. You really can't go wrong with anything you do there, it's a great place to visit. Have fun!
I love Oahu. You can go up to the North Shore to see the big, breaking waves where a lot of surf competitions happen. If you are into snorkeling, I would recommend Hanauma Bay, Oahu. It is a great, protected bay with clear water. I HIGHLY recommend going there early in the morning because that is when it is least crowded and also when the water tends to be the most clear. Have fun!
My decision to travel to Hawaii will remain to be the best I have made this year.
