The land of aloha
“Paradise” is a word that is used liberally these days, and lots of places have been given that title. The reality is, however, that few locations truly deserve such a compliment. Without a doubt, Oahu is one of those places. As the home of Hawaii’s capital and largest city, Honolulu, Oahu is the cultural, social and economic center of the islands. The weather is perfect year-round, with summer temperatures in the 80’s and only a few degrees cooler during the winter. Oahu is a very diverse place where eastern and western cultures blend with Hawaiian traditions with something for everyone, from the big city on the south shore to the rural atmosphere on the north shore. The island is made up of five uniquely distinct regions. Honolulu is the bustling city that serves as the busy, urban center of Oahu. The laid-back North Shore is rural side of the island and is the home of big wave surfing. On the Leeward Coast, there are hidden beaches and luxury resorts. And on the Windward Coast, rich valleys and ranches give way to the bright blue waters of the Pacific.
While visiting Oahu, spending some time in downtown Honolulu is an absolute must. Guests can walk through Honolulu’s vibrant Chinatown that is home to authentic restaurants serving up the islands best noodles and dim sum. As the home of Honolulu’s vibrant nightlife scene, an evening in Chinatown is filled with live music, tiki bars and an eclectic array of food stands. The Ala Moana center is the world biggest outdoor shopping mall that has major brand retailers, local shops and island eateries. Just next to Honolulu is Waikiki Beach, which is easily Hawaii’s most popular tourist location with its warm calm waters and soft sand. Those seeking a relaxing paradise can find it just outside of Honolulu where the less crowded towns and resorts are. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the hiking and mountain biking on Oahu’s two mountain ranges – Waianae and Koolau. The waters off the Oahu are literally teeming with sea life so the scuba diving and snorkeling are some of the world’s best. A drive around the island brings guests to small towns where the locals welcome visitors with Hawaiian warmth and hospitality.
Private Aircraft Charter to Oahu FAQ
What do I need to think about when chartering to Oahu?
Oahu is served by two airports that are well-equipped to handle both interisland and overseas flights from the U.S. mainland. Both of Oahu’s airports are on the south shore and have excellent access to the H1 Highway, so getting to every part of the island is a breeze. Whether guests are staying in Waikiki, the North Shore or the Leeward Coast, getting there is simple from either airport. Honolulu International Airport – HNL – is Oahu’s main airport that sits just six miles from downtown and Waikiki Beach and is perfectly located to set off to all other parts of the island. HNL regularly handles major airlines so it can easily accommodate long-range jets coming in from the mainland. A second option is Kalaeola Airport – HJR – is a great option for guests who prefer to avoid busy commercial airports. Since there is no airline traffic at HJR, guests can enjoy an arrival and departure with less congestion and far easier access in and out.
