Oahu Revealed: The Ultimate Guide to Honolulu, Waikiki & Beyond 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

This travel guide gives you honest opinions about everything Oahu. We used the Maui version a number of years ago and found it invaluable. They visit restaurants and hire services without revealing who they are, to get the same experience a visitor to Oahu would get. Some out of the way beaches and favorites of locals are revealed. Highly recommend if you are visiting Oahu.

Everyone coming to Oath should read this book to get an idea of what to visit and what to avoid. This book is well written and well organized. It is my favorite book about Oahu. Definitely check out the rest of the series for the other islands if you come to Hawaii.
