Vacation on O’ahu, Hawaii | Destination Photographer

My husband and I took an extended vacation to explore the South Pacific for nearly six weeks. It was definitely the trip of a lifetime! Our trip began in beautiful O’ahu, Hawaii. We love Hawaii, but in the past we have found ourselves avoiding the island of O’ahu, and visiting the less-frequented islands, because we were afraid O’ahu would be crowded (since Honolulu is on that island). But thankfully, we so wrong about O’ahu! We stayed in Kahalu’u a few days, and near Punalu’u the rest of the time, and we felt like we were worlds away from the big city! O’ahu has so many beautiful places to explore, I’m so glad we decided to finally pay it a visit. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to find beautiful non-crowded beaches, breath-taking views, and exciting hikes, just like on Hawaii’s other islands.
After Hawaii, we ventured to Tahiti, Moorea, Fiji, Samoa, and American Samoa…more blog posts about those locations coming soon!
Here are a few photos from Hawaii!
