 Oahu, Hawaii


 Oahu Hawaii draws tourists in record numbers every year. Panoramic ocean views, lush greenery, and a year round tropical climate makes Oahu a paradise oasis for sight-seeing and relaxing in the sun. Oahu is the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands, and houses the capital city of Honolulu. Surrounded by water and divided by mountain ranges, the island offers adventure and solace. Throughout history, there have been volcanic eruptions, famous movies, politicians and actors that have been part of this islands fame, but the
people who call Oahu home know its real lure.

 Oahu beaches are some of the best beaches in the world with a shoreline that stretches for 227 miles. Sunbathing is a normal pastime, but there is also fishing, snorkeling, swimming, and beach volleyball tournaments. Waikiki Beach, with a calm shoreline on the South
