Take a morning stroll down Waikiki Beach and let the white sand warm your toes. Climb into your convertible, crank up the stereo, and head onto H-1 West to pay your respects at the USS Arizona memorial at Pearl Harbor. From there, it’s a half-hour jaunt across the island to the Valley of the Temples, full of green hills and exquisite architecture.
Claim Your Vacation
You won’t be able to get to these destinations on your own schedule if you rely on tourist busses and taxis. With a car rental, Oahu opens up its doors, allowing you to see the parts of the island the tour agencies don’t always show you. Pack your children into your midsize rental car and take them into the city of Honolulu, home to numerous museums and galleries, including the Honolulu Museum of Art, which is home to over 50,000 pieces. Load your snorkeling and surfing gear into your SUV and try your luck in Kawela Bay and Sunset Beach – the entire island is at your disposal.
Get Up and Go
If you’re taking advantage of our cheap flights to Oahu Island, you’ll be landing at Honolulu International Airport (HNL), where you can locate the car rental agencies in the baggage claim area. Reserve a car ahead of time to cut down on the wait; all you’ll need to do is sign your paperwork, pick up your car, and head out to the H-1 Interstate to hit the beaches or visit Diamond Head.
