Oahu - Hawaii’s number 1 meeting place

Many visitors think Oahu only consists of Waikiki before their Hawaii vacation, but this island offers much more than just this world-famous stretch of beach.

If you want an impression of the city and the country, this is the place for you. The island is wonderfully varied and offers something for every visitor.Oahu is also known as the “meeting point” and more than lives up to its nickname, everyone can find suitable accommodation here and with the large selection of restaurants it would take weeks to try everything.

Oahu is the third largest of the Hawaiian islands and is also home to the majority of Hawaiians. This is where western and eastern cultures meet and mix with Polynesian values ​​and traditions. It is precisely this contrast program that makes Oahu something very special.

All over the island you will find memories of the history of Oahu, in which King Kamehameha plays a very important role. In 1898 Hawaii became a US territory. The 19th century resulted in many changes, primarily through missionary work. Everyone will remember December 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, in which 12 American warships and 188 aircraft were damaged or destroyed and 2,471 people died. In 1959, Hawaii became the 50th state in the United States.
