Oahu Tourism has its roots in Waikiki, home to a popular beach which enjoys close proximity to the urban center of Honolulu. Waikiki in many ways defines Hawaiian tourism. Indeed, it's home to 97 percent of the accommodations available on Oahu, and it is easy to see why. The calm surf and shallow waters of Waikiki are perfect for even the youngest or most timid swimmers, and yet its beauty will impress even the most jaded traveler.

Oahu tourism goes beyond the cove of Waikiki, however, and includes an incredibly diverse selection of landscapes and activities. The North Shore, for instance, is home to some of the most challenging surfing conditions in the world, attracting surfers throughout the year. Oahu is also home to various historical and cultural sites of great significance, including Pearl Harbor.

Oahu also hosts several memorable cultural festivals throughout the year. It's a good idea to check and see what's going on when you book your vacation to Oahu. The Hawaii Theatre and the Honolulu Academy of the Arts both sponsor a host of festivities celebrating Hawaiian culture, which are well worth the trip.

There is plenty to do for the whole family. Boredom is definitely not an element to Oahu tourism. Jet skiing, zoo and aquarium visits, and volcano hiking are usually more than enough to keep visitors busy and happy.
