Your Oahu vacation

Dreaming of sun-drenched sand, mai tai in hand? With more than 130 tropical beaches, you'll discover all types -- from bronzed glamazons to shipwrecked buccaneers. When the tan-o-meter reads "done," buy kitschy souvenirs at the International Market Place, salute historic Pearl Harbor, hike Diamond Head or settle into Waikiki's cornucopia of eateries.

The ultimate Oahu vacation is only a few clicks away. Our insider guide will prime you with Oahu vacation trips, from the best time to go and top 10s, to insider tips from Orbitz travel experts.

Best time to take a vacation to Oahu

  • While mainlanders shovel snow or bake in oven-hot summers, Oahu enjoys a year-round balmy climate with natural air-conditioning from trade winds. Waikiki soaks up the sun most days, while valleys and the lush Windward Coast dazzle with tropical showers and rainbows.

    Oahu travel is at its best when crowds and prices cool: September through November. Or, time your trip for an event like the century-old King Kamehameha Day Parade in June, or Aloha Festivals in September. In November and December, the North Shore heats up with the Triple Crown of Surfing. December also rocks the Honolulu Marathon, one of the world's largest.

Insider tips for Oahu travel

  • Antique Alley

    Why not bring home a hula-dancer lamp, a netted glass fishing float or vintage kimono? Shop real Hawaii here in living color.

  • Le Bistro

    Dine at one of Oahu's best restaurants, hidden in a shopping center on the way to Hanauma Bay. French cuisine pairs with a casual-yet-elegant atmosphere for a perfect evening out.

  • La Mariana

    Drop by Oahu's authentic tiki bar from yesteryear, peppered with sea captains from the neighboring harbor.

  • Malaekahana Beach

    Play the castaway on a secluded, forest-lined Windward Coast beach with an exotic offshore islet, all within easy reach of a hot shower and steak dinner.
