    Oahu has a unique rhythm, filling the air with sweet fragrances, exotic flowers, music and language; exhilarating one moment, tranquil the next. From sparkling beaches and dazzling nightlife to lush rainforests and secluded valleys. Adventure, history, romance, discovery. Oahu awaits you. Ready to inspire and rejuvenate you.

    The perfect day on Oahu. Pack a cooler with drinks and a picnic, and make sure you have your swimsuit, towels and sunscreen with you. Its time to explore this beautiful island.

    Head east from Waikiki through Kapi'olani Park. Follow the road that goes around the front of Diamond Head. As well as being Hawaii's most recognizable landmark, it has a couple of scenic overlooks where you can watch the surfers along the South Shore. Travel on through Kahala and Hawaii Kai to the rugged east coast of the island.

    Enjoy some fantastic snorkelling at Hanauma Bay before you continue on past the Blow Hole and Sandy Beach to Makapu'u, a perfect place to stop and enjoy sights of the real Hawaii. Mark Twain said that Hawaii is 'the most beautiful fleet of islands. The mountains plunge from the sky into the sea and on a clear day the palette of colour is breathtaking. If you are an accomplished body surfer, you will definitely enjoy the challenge of Makapu'u Bay.

    Continue towards the North Shore and Hale'iwa, a little town on Oahu's North Shore that's filled with galleries, antique shops and great restaurants. The road hugs the coastline most of the way. There are parks, picnic stops, scenic overlooks and waterfalls for miles. This may be the most scenic drive on the island. Where the mountains touch the sea is always a special place.

    If you're looking for golf, there's a fantastic course at Turtle Bay Resort, but you may want to save that for another day. A little further is Sunset Beach - if the surf is up here, it's awe-inspiring.

    It's time to head back to Waikiki, and what better way to end your perfect day on Oahu than taking a romantic walk along Waikiki Beach to watch the moon rise over Diamond Head.

    Waikiki has so many fabulous restaurants, offering a vast array of cuisine that no matter what your taste, you are sure to find something to suit your mood and palate. If you still have some energy left after such a busy day, there's certainly plenty of nightlife in this cosmopolitan resort.

      Drive the Road to Hana, along the east shore of Maui. It’s one of the Pacific’s most scenic routes; stop to enjoy the waterfalls and other beauty spots en route.

    • Top Tip 3

      Everyone does it, but it really is worth a visit to Pearl Harbour and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial.

    • Top Tip 4

      On the Big Island of Hawaii, take a helicopter excursion and fly over the lava flow region of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

    • Top Tip 5

      Take a drive over to Hanalei Bay on the north shore of Kauai. It's where South Pacific was filmed.

    • Top Tip 6

      Hawaii’s whale-watching season is from December to April so take some time out on the water.

    • Top Tip 7

      The Na Pali coast on the north-west side of Kauai boasts rugged 3000 ft high cliffs covered in lush green vegetation. You can only see it by helicopter or on a boat excursion. Prepare to be amazed.

    • Top Tip 8

      Oahu's north shore is home to two of the best surfing spots in the world - Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay. The waters tend to be calm during the summer months, however, the winter weather systems create waves up to 30 ft high so it's a great place to watch the daring surfers.

    • Top Tip 9

      If you're staying at the Hyatt Regency Maui, make sure you take the Tour of the Stars. You'll view the stars through Hawaii's only recreational telescope, located on the roof of the hotel. Book in advance as seating is limited and you won’t want to miss it.

    • Top Tip 10

      Take a snorkelling tour by catamaran from Maui to Molokini Crater. You can depart from Lahaina; however it can get pretty choppy so we recommend you leave from Maalaea Bay for a shorter and calmer crossing.

    • Top Tip 11

      It means a very early start, but drive to the top of the Haleakala Volcano on the island of Maui and watch the sunrise – simply spellbinding.
