Oahu, known as 'The Gathering Place', is the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands, but it is home to about two-thirds of the population of the the Hawaian islands. The state capital, Honolulu, on Oʻahu's southeast coast is legendary.
Honolulu is the largest city, state capital, and is home to the main deepwater marine port for the State of Hawaiʻi.
West of Honolulu is Pearl Harbor, site of the WWII's 1941 bombing attack and home to the USS Arizona Memorial.
Waikiki Beach is also extremely well know- it is an iconic beach, with quality dining and nightlife areas.

Water activities dominate on O'ahu- surfing, snorkelling, fishing, sailing - and noted marine playgrounds can be found at Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, Kāneʻohe Bay, Kailua Bay, and North Shore.
And of course, then there is the golf!
