Before winter moves in some friends and I went to Oahu for a week to soak up some sun and warmth. I'd been there about 10 years ago. This trip was a little more laid back then the previous one. Unfortunately surfing was not in the cards for me.
But the waves were easy and light so surfers were everywhere.
The main hang out on Waikiki Beach. The statue is covered with lais everyday from local surfers.
Anybody remember the movie "From Here to Eternity"? Remember the beach make out scene? Nice beach.
Hanauma Bay. This is one of the best places in Oahu for snorkeling. Great reefs and great fish. There are different areas among the reefs for the beginner snorkeler and the advanced snorkeler. Wonderful park with grass to lie on under the palm trees, showers, bathrooms, gear rental, etc. It's a little outside of Honolulu so you have to catch a shuttle or bus to go there.
