60-Second Geography


The culture is a mix of Polynesian, Asian, European and American.  But perhaps the most varied aspect of the Islands is the way that this tremendous confluence appeals to so many different types of people – young, old, active and beach lovers, there is something for everyone in O’ahu.  And all of this means one thing above all others – O’ahu is the world’s greatest family destination.
  • Most of the resorts on the Islands offer family programs. The brand-new Aulani Resort, A Disney Resort & Spa was created by the people who know families best. Aulani is a new kind of paradise for families located in west O‘ahu on a beautiful beachfront cove, it offers different kinds of fun for guests of every age.
  • What type of activities might a family find on O’ahu?  Let’s first give due respect to the Aloha culture.  Deep in the roots of O’ahu’s own way of being, family is an important concept.  Elders are respected and it is not at all unusual to find multi-generational families under the same roof.  A respect for the land and for the Hawaiian culture is inherent with the native population. For these reasons and more, families find a warm welcome from the natives and the Islands reflect back a family culture.
  • There is no shortage of possibility on O’ahu.  There is beach time and golf, pools and beaches, biking swimming fishing sailing, surfing, hula, dude ranches, shopping, museums, whale watching, volcanoes, eco-tours and kayaking. A visit to Pearl Harbor is a sobering reminder of this island’s place in America’s history.
  • Love shopping? From posh European to locally made, avant-garde to casual, Oahu’s offerings are wide-ranging. Among the designer boutiques on Waikiki’s Kalakaua Avenue plenty of booths hawk airbrushed T-shirts, gold by the inch, and aloha shirts. Instead, surprise your friends with patterned aloha shirts and sarongs. Buy bowls and baskets made of pandanus leaves or stock up on local Kona coffee. No trip is complete without purchasing a lei, and on Maunakea Street, O’ahu’s finest floral creations go for as little as $3.50.
  • Above all, O’ahu invites the visitor out-of-doors. Grandparents, parents and children alike will all have their own ways of enjoying the natural beauty and outdoor life of the Islands. Unlike destinations that confine visitors to privileged enclaves, O’ahu encourages meaningful encounters with the very people who give the land its human character.  Hawai’i’s culture invites the family to engage it on a personal level: to attend a luau, to dance the hula, to experience the Polynesian way of life and to know Aloha from the moment the first lei is draped around their necks on arrival.
