Hawaii is always a wonderful place to visit with no shortage of things to do and beautiful sites to see. If you’re planning a trip to Oahu this year, Lucky Owl Car Rental has to put together a list of quick day trips from Oahu so you can plan accordingly. We love to share our tips and tricks around the islands so visitors can always get the most out of their vacations.
1. Waikiki Beach
Because Waikiki Beach is one of the most well-known and developed areas in the state, there is a good chance you’ll be staying there when you visit the island of Oahu. However, if your lodging is elsewhere, we encourage you to make a day trip as it is truly one of the greatest places to visit. Waikiki’s beauty and vibrance make it easy to see why it is so popular. While at Waikiki Beach, you can learn to paddleboard, surf, snorkel, or just relax and take in the sights. You’ll love the pure white sand and turquoise sea adjacent to the city’s stunning skyscrapers. Don’t miss out on Waikiki Beach.
2. Diamond Head
If you’re looking to stay active on your vacation, a hike to the summit of the Diamond Head volcano could be just the thing. Diamond Head is a giant crater that overlooks Honolulu and Waikiki Beach. The crater can be seen from the streets and beaches below, enticing you to hike to the lookout. The way up is challenging; however, it is filled out with concrete steps to help you along your way. We recommend planning your climb early in the morning before the temperatures get too high and before the crowds arrive. The view from the summit is one you will remember for the rest of your life.
3. Dole Plantation
Finally, no visit to Oahu would be complete without a visit to the Dole Plantation. Oahu is famous for its pineapples, and many consider them to be the most delicious and sweetest in the world! Families with young kids love to visit the Dole Plantation for a day of learning about the history and culture of Hawaii. You’ll also learn about the culinary traditions of the locals as well as the importance of pineapples to the island itself.
Oahu offers many possibilities when it comes to day trips. But first, you need to reserve your rental car, minivan, passenger van, or SUV! To do so, call (808) 352-4890, email us, or request an online quote. Whatever you decide to do, Lucky Owl Car Rental hopes you have an amazing visit to Oahu.
