Towering over Honolulu, Diamond Head State Monument (or L_‘ahi, as it’s known in Hawaiian) offers panoramic views of Oahu’s coastline and the surrounding tropical countryside. The volcanic cone is a popular hiking spot for locals – who use it for regular exercise – and visitors – who stop to snap photos of the views.

A deceptively modest white plaster exterior belies the breathtaking Islamic art housed within this former home of philanthropist Doris Duke. Inside, dozens of jewel-toned windows color the light, while an ornate Moroccan ceiling and thousands of intricately patterned tiles dazzle the eye. A turquoise mihrab – a 13th-century prayer niche –pays homage to Iranian tradition while calligraphic Islamic script graces the surfaces of the estate.

HALE'IWA TOWN
HaleIwa-Town_700x380

Once a small outpost amid sugar plantations sits this historic town, about an hour north of Waikiki on Oahu’s awe-inspiring northern shore. Even without its famous breakers, the traditional, Territorial-style architecture is an impressive sight. The town’s charming shops sell classic Hawaiian goods, including surfboards, pearl jewelry, unique apparel, and botanical products. Plentiful here, too, are Hawaiian-style plate lunches, and the legendary banana-coconut-pineapple shave ice.

HANAUMA BAY

Oahu’s waters offer an abundance of riches when it comes to marine sightseeing, and snorkeling and diving opportunities. Just outside Honolulu, though, lies one of its most impressive: Hanauma Bay, a marine life conservation area, offers crystal-clear, shallow waters in which visitors can swim with brightly colored fish and exotic marine life and admire healthy coral reefs.
