    Holona Blow Hole Oahu South Eastern Shore.

    by Waalewiener Written Mar 26, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This Blow hole is a favorite diving and snorkeling site, but also the most dangerous
    onthe Island of Oahu.
    There is a strong Current here and slippery
    Rocks , there are no life guards here , so it can be dangerous.
    The nearest facilities to the Blow Hole is Sandy beach a little North of Blow Hole.

    Fondest memory: To get to the Blow Hole on the South East Shore you pass Hanauma Bay and there will be a Tourist Turnout at the road.

    Oahu is for Tourists

    by swordman Updated Mar 6, 2003

    Favorite thing: On Oahu tourist activities abound. Wiakiki for the crowds, nightlife, shopping and "be seen" beach. Pearl Harbor, the Arizona, the Missouri, the Bowfin, all worthwhile. Northshore for the surfing, low density beaches and the Polynesian Cultural Center.

    Maui or Kauai for secluded beaches, golf, and quiet.

    Big Island for fishing, open country and the volcanos. Small beaches.

    Fondest memory: The sand bar in Kaneohe Bay. Isolated away from the crowds of sunburned tourists. Rent a small boat and motor or sail out to join the locals (tolerance of topless swimwear and drugs required).

    When hiking Diamond Head please follow the rules.

    by Waalewiener Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The trail to the summit of Le ahi or Diamond
    Head is fragile and of course you are asked to follow the stricked rules on this Trail.
    The Trail was built in 1908 as part of a U S Army defense system. Mules used to haul materials on this trail for construction of Fire Control Station Diamond Head. The Kahala tunnel was built in the 1940's and it is the public entrance to the Crater.

    Beaches Beaches Beaches

    by TropicGirl77 Written Feb 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Obviously, Hawaii is known for it's beautiful beaches! Please be sure to visit several of our beaches ... Drive around the island and you are bound to see several that are very inviting! Some secluded, some very populated, some for snorkeling some for watching surfers ... pick your mood.

    Fondest memory: Hawaii's beaches are truly beautiful. I would miss them all! I love being on the Northshore side of the island where the population is mainly locals and the waves are high. I love scouring the beach in the morning for seashells.

    The Honolulu Marathon

    by sargentjeff Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: It's fantastic, it's early (very early), and has thousands of runners and spectators to make the run bearable. This race attracts over 25,000 runners every year, and many of them come from Japan. I ran this race twice, and was 56th my first year. 2 hours 42 minutes was my best, and I actually placed as top military in 97. Tough to do since there are at least five military bases on Oahu. I love this race, and even though it starts at 5a.m. it's worth a try. There are also many runners who run for Leukemia, and this is a wonderful cause.

    Start of Honolulu Marathon 1997

    You must experience a Sunset

    by keeweechic Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: You must experience an Hawaiian sunset. This won't be hard as they are not exactly rare. Sit in the early evening, picnic on the beach or at a beachside bar and watch the transformation of the glorious azure skies as they fade and the golden then rich orange/red shades take over. Just spectacular.

    Hit the Beaches.

    by sargentjeff Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: After three years in Hawaii you'd think I would be sick of it, but no way.

    The day before I left I was at Waikiki enjoying a beautiful evening. we always had great weather in Hawaii, and as I was floating out in the water I looked around and just tried to soak in everything.

    Here are a few memories
    The smell of tropical flowers in Honolulu Airport stays emblazened on my mind.
    The lei stand outside the airport.
    Big Kahuna's Pizza
    Running the Honolulu marathon
    The perimeter road race
    Running at Kapiolani park and around diamond head
    my first triathlon
    Pearl Harbor/USS Arizona
    Bodyboarding at north shore and being pummeled by waves.
    cycling all over
    driving to the north shore up kam hwy and catching the view as i crest the hill that gives the vista of it all.
    golfing after work
    too many to list 'em all, but that's a few

    spartan's General Tip

    by spartan Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: You might, for example, get away from it all and still have access to everything by booking a stay on the island's north shore. Numerous vacation rentals and bed and breakfast spots are available there. Home to some of the best surfing beaches in the world, the north shore's laid-back lifestyle also makes it a popular destination for Honolulu residents who want to kick back without traveling far from home.

    White sand, blue skies and blue water

    by spartan Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: If it's bright lights, nightlife and beaches you're after, Waikiki is probably where you'll wind up. Come to think of it, that's probably where you'll end up like it or not. The overwhelming majority of Oahu's hotels are strung out like pearls along Waikiki Beach. In recent years, however, Waikiki has become quite congested. So if the point of your visit is to experience an idyllic island lifestyle, it might be smart to head elsewhere.

    Stones, waves, and splashes

    by OlenaKyiv Written Apr 1, 2007

    Favorite thing: South-East shore is not sandy but only rocks, rocks and rocks. Gorgeous view, but also fearful, because only a thought to be crashed on those rocks made my skins covered with goose bumps. Brrrr…

    Scenery look

    by OlenaKyiv Written Apr 1, 2007

    Favorite thing: Heading West on H1 not so far from Waikiki Beach there was a scenery look. We stopped and saw the panorama of houses in valley near the mountain and low floating clouds in the sky.
