WHAT You will find…

Hawaii Family Life offers down-to-earth, real-life experiences

and suggestions for traveling with your little and not-so-little ones.

We get it. Like many families, we have a love-anxiety relationship with children and traveling. We love the travel and we love the kids but we know that traveling + kids may sometimes require a different kind of planning. Is that show/luau/tour age-appropriate for my 1/10/15-year-old? Can my 3-year-old hike that trail? Is there anything to do with a baby in tow? Does it make sense to bring my stroller/baby carrier on this tour?

These are the questions we relentlessly google-searched too so we know that family-to-family recommendations are valuable tools while planning your Hawaii vacation, stay-cation, or a trip to the beach!

Top Things to do In Oahu Hawaii

1. Swim in the world famous Waikiki beach

The world famous Waikiki beach is famous for a reason and if you have come with family members who don’t really swim, this will give you options for both the novice and the expert swimmer.

2. Walk up the Diamond Head trail

Check out the view from Diamond Head where it gives you a stunning 360-degree panoramic view of Waikiki, downtown Honolulu, stunning shoreline, and the Windward-side of Oahu.

3. Visit North Shore Beaches for the giant waves

Ok, this comes with a caveat, the giant waves of the North Shore only come in winter time, but if you happen to be here, pull up a chair and just watch those colossal 20~30 foot waves crash to the shore, you’ll see a spectacular show of the power of the ocean.
