If you are looking for tips on what to do in Oahu, down below we’ve listed the top activities in Oahu we did experience and recommend you add to your itinerary for your own Hawaii vacation. 

Diamond Head Walk

One of the most famous Oahu activities is the Diamond Head walk. It was right at the top of our things to do in Waikiki list and we really enjoyed it – the views over Waikiki Beach and the Pacific Ocean are stunning!

Road Trip around Oahu with Kid

You can’t spend every day laying on the beach in Waikiki, well you could but driving around the Island of Oahu is a great way to spend a day on your trip to the Hawaiian Islands. 

Go Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay

One of the other most popular things to do in Oahu Hawaii on a family vacation is visiting Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve to explore the marine life of Hawaii. It’s one of the best places in Hawaii to go snorkeling. 

Pearl Harbor Tour – Top Oahu Attraction

It was a beautiful memorial, and you can visit the grounds and museum before catching a boat over to the Arizona Memorial, the ship that sunk and is now the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed. 

Spend a few hours (or a whole day) on Waikiki Beach

Whilst the main section in front of The Royal Hawaiian Hotel (the Flamingo Pink) gets crowded and it can be hard to find a spot to put your towel, as a city tourist beach, we were impressed.
