Spring Break Oahu Attractions

oahu attractions spring break

Each year, thousands of people travel the globe to celebrate one thing: SPRING BREAK! If your spring break destination this year is Hawaii, we’ve put together our list of top Oahu attractions to fill up your week.

 

If You Want Some Sun…

Get on the beach! Oahu is a destination known for its shores and warm waters. The island is home to more than 125 distinct beaches, which means plenty of room for volleyball, snorkeling, and of course, tanning. Stop by Ala Moana Beach for some stand up paddle boarding and cheap rentals on chairs, umbrellas, and coolers for the beach.

You can also visit Haleiwa Beach Park for a kayaking adventure along Oahu’s north shore. Here kayaking in Oahu is at its best. Keep an eye out during your four hour tour through scenic Waialua Bay – you may see a roaming pod of green sea turtles, locally referred to as “Hanu”.

If You’re Sun-Burnt…

Put some aloe on your burn and plan a day inside. The Honolulu Museum of Art will not only give you a break from the heat – it’ll introduce you to over 50,000 works of both classic and modern art spanning more than 5,000 years. The Museum is also home to the Doris Duke Theatre which is celebrated as the “premier platform for independent and international film in Hawaii” according to the museum’s website. Chill out in the dark of a theater and let the break from the sun soothe your burn.

The AlohaBus Double Decker Tour of Oahu is another shaded option for those travelers too restless to sit for a movie. Take a seat on the first floor of the bus and enjoy Oahu’s most popular sites without giving up air conditioning.

If You Want to Learn Something…

Make the short trip to the Polynesian Cultural Center and learn something new about Polynesian Culture. Spread out over 42 acres, the Center is made up of six distinct villages which each represent Polynesian islands such as Hawaii and Tahiti. Some of the new attractions at the Polynesian Cultural Center include tree climbing, Samoan cooking, and even spear throwing (for the adventurous).

History buffs can tour Pearl Harbor for a firsthand accounts of its history and unforgettable attack which brought the United States into World War II. Tours with our Go Oahu Card also include a fully narrated tour of Honolulu City for you to enjoy once you’ve concluded your tour of Pearl Harbor.

Spring Break Attractions in Oahu

If You Need to Relax…

When Oahu attractions are starting to wear you out, look no further than a relaxing catamaran sail to relax you and lift your spirits. The Makani Catamaran Sail offers both a breakfast and a lunch sail with available food and creature comforts such as a covered cabin seating area and a surround sound stereo. Be on the lookout for dolphins, flying fish, and sea turtles during your tour of Oahu’s shores, and don’t forget to pack a light jacket for the windy weather.

You can also relax with a wander around Kualoa Ranch. The Ancient Fishpond and Garden Tour at Kualoa Ranch walks you through groves of fragrant fruit trees and exotic gardens with the opportunity to sample any low-hanging fruit or purchase any spice that catches your eye. You’ll also have the opportunity to relax on a canoe ride on an 800 year old fish pond and take in gorgeous views of the Kualoa cliffs. There’s no better way to end your spring break than with this relaxing ride.
