Home to the majority of Hawaiians, Oahu is known as the Gathering Place, or the heart of Hawaii. See the state capital to immerse yourself in local culture, a diverse mix of European, Asian and Native Hawaiian traditions. Experience a typical luau, or sample frosty shave ice and surprising fish-based dishes. Outside the city, Oahu offers scenic surf spots, remote beaches and breathtaking vistas.
