Oahu | activities

With 125 beaches Oahu is known for its vast array of water sports. Famous surf spots on the North Shore such as Pipline, Outer Log Cabin and Waimea Bay are playgrounds for professional surfers. Beginners can check out Bellows and the experienced can try Backdoor and Sunset. No need to worry if you're new to the sport, there are 100 surf spots around Oahu and at least 60 percent are accessible for all levels. In Kailua, rent a kayak and head over to the Na Mokulua, 'the two' islands, a sea bird sanctuary popular amongst anyone with an easy way of getting there, a long board, stand up paddle or canoe. Stand up paddling is actually a fast growing sport in Hawaii, ideal for moments when the ocean isn't producing swells large enough to surf on. In Kailua it's easy to get some lessons, get the hang of it, and start touring about. If you've been doing it for awhile, there are lessons for tail turning and wave riding.

Ziplining is your opportunity to get out of the water and fly. Overlooking Kaneohe Bay and the Koolau Mountains there's a 400 foot dual zipline that starts at the Bay View Mini Putt and propels you 25 mph past waterfalls.
