Hawaii with Kids (Oahu)
With a modern city, perfect weather and beaches and plenty of food and shopping options; the Island of Oahu is an ideal family holiday destination.
Waikiki is a clean modern city that I found comparable with the Gold Coast in Australia. There are some beautiful beaches to visit, plenty of options to escape the city and anything you could possibly need for yourself and the kids is available.
I can’t wait to come back and visit some of the other islands!
My favourite places in Hawaii with kids (Oahu)
I really enjoyed getting out of town and exploring the many different beaches in Oahu. I don’t have one favourite but I particularly enjoyed Ala Moana Beach Park and Hanauma Bay. Other highlights included hiking the Diamond Head Trail, the botanical gardens and Waimea Falls.
We based ourselves in Waikiki, staying in a private rental right next door to the Hilton. I don’t think we could have stayed in a better location for the price! We were right next door to the yacht harbour, Hilton lagoon and friday night Hilton fireworks. We were also within walking distance of shops and restaurants.
