LOCATION & GETTING HERE
The world’s longest island chain, Hawaii is an isolated archipelago in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, on the northern edge of the tropical zone between America and Japan. First settled by Polynesians, Hawaii was visited by British captain James Cook in 1778 who named them the Sandwich Islands. Hawaii archipelago is formed by 8 major islands and a series of smaller ones.
Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, Waikiki and North Shore are names that, each for a different reason, put Oahu on the world map. Spectacular beaches, luxury resorts, tall mountains and lush countryside form the backdrop of this dream island. The third-largest island in Hawaii, Oahu is defined by two mountain ranges that divides the island into three environments: The lush windward (eastern) coast, the drier leeward (western) coast, and the fertile central Ewa Valley. Oahu is also the most populated island, where Honolulu is the capital city, principal port, major airport, business hub, financial centre and educational heart of the State of Hawaii, US’ 50th state.
Tropical. Oahu has two seasons, both of them warm. The dry season that corresponds to summer, and the rainy season that runs from November to March. During these months, Oahu receives huge swells generated by deep low pressures inthe North Pacific that come crashing on the North Shore.
