Oahu is the most visited island in Hawaii. Last year saw nearly 10 million visitors, so it can sometimes feel like the island is swarming with tourists, especially if you’re spending the majority of your time in Waikiki.

Read on to find out the restaurants, activities, and hotels where you’ll find just as many locals as visitors.

And a few weeks ago that wish came true at Coconut Waikiki Hotel!
