Unexpected Oahu

Located on Oahu’s North Shore, Kahuku’s shrimp trucks don’t look like much. But watching the blissful customers walk away from these humble road-side restaurants with heaping plates of fresh, garlic shrimp scampi and your mouth can’t help but water. The locally raised, jumbo prawns sold at about a half dozen shrimp trucks in Kahuku are just one example of the hidden gems Oahu has to offer beyond the bright lights of Waikiki.

Travel to the eastern tip of Oahu and hike the Makapuu Lighthouse trail for breathtaking ocean views. Eat like a local at small neighborhoods like Kapahulu or have a picnic at Oahu beaches beyond Waikiki like Kailua Beach. Discover local artists at the First Friday celebration in Downtown Honolulu and Chinatown. Or transport yourself to another world at beautiful spots like the Valley of the Temples. With a little exploration, you’ll discover Waikiki is just the beginning of your travels on Oahu.

From sunrise surfing lessons to dancing all night, you can go 24-hours in Waikiki without a dull moment.
