Oahu Sightseeing

Oahu Sightseeing Tours and Activities

The two most popular day trips for Oahu sightseeing are the Polynesian Cultural Center and Pearl Harbor.

The Polynesian Cultural Center is located on the north shore of the island. The drive around the island for a day trip is easy, the best route from Waikiki is east shore in the morning and west shore in the evening. During the winter, when the north shore surf is 20 ft and more, there will be traffic jams between Turtle Bay and Haleiwa Town in both directions.

Pearl Harbor is on the west shore just north of Waikiki Beach, you will have a good view of the harbor from the plane if you are seated on the left side during landing. Shuttles are advised for a day trip from Waikiki hotels to Pearl Harbor as parking is difficult but not impossible.
