Oahu boasts temperatures that remain steady in the 70s and 80s year-round, so no matter what season you’re planning your island vacation, there are sure to be a host of beach Oahu events for both participating and observing.
Hawaii is the birthplace of surfing and the pinnacle of surf culture. There is no shortage of surf competitions on Oahu’s big wave beaches. The Billabong Pipeline Masters is the most popular surf contest in the world, and is highly anticipated by both participants and spectators. Taking place in December at Banzai Pipeline on Oahu’s North Shore, top pro surfers from around the world flock to this beach to compete in this Ko Olina event on the massive waves. With the swell coming relatively close to shore, it is a thrill for spectators as well. The Van’s Triple Crown of Surfing in November are three contests also taking place at Banzai Pipeline, as well as nearby Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay. If you’re on Oahu during winter months, you are sure to observe some amazing surfing on the North Shore, whether it’s a professional competition or experienced surfers taking on the big waves.
Oahu has a plethora of water sports for all skill levels available throughout the year. Don a mask and fins and explore the vibrant underwater world, stand up paddle board over tranquil waters, or kayak or canoe to explore offshore islands. From beginning to advanced surfers, there are lessons, rentals, and beaches with various sized waves to suit your skill level and interests.
Fireworks on the Beach
Celebrate our country and all of its beauty in a jaw-dropping setting. Ala Moana Beach Park and Kailua Beach both put on large fireworks displays for the 4th of July. With the ocean waves crashing gently, the sand in your toes, and a vibrant display overhead, there’s no better way to kick off the summer.
