Sometimes called “The Gathering Place,” Oahu certainly lives up to its name. The third largest Hawaiian island is home to the majority of Hawaii’s diverse population, a fusion of East and West cultures rooted in the values and traditions of the Native Hawaiian people. It’s this fundamental contrast between the ancient and the modern that makes discovering Oahu — from bustling city life to laidback surf towns — so enjoyable.

Honolulu is the state capital of Hawai‘i and is located on the island of O‘ahu. The average daytime temperature in the summer is about 85° Fahrenheit (29.4 C) and the average daytime temperature in the winter is 78° Fahrenheit (25.6 C). Nighttime temperatures are about 10° Fahrenheit lower.
