World's Best Islands 2013
No. 11 Oahu, HI
Split your time between Oahu’s 112 miles of coastline and the shopping, dining, and nightlife of Honolulu, Hawaii’s most cosmopolitan and easily accessible city. (It’s also where to pay your respects at Pearl Harbor or take a free hula lesson at the Royal Hawaiian Center.) The finest pro and amateur surfers come for the epic waves of the North Shore, while calm Hanauma Bay Beach is nicely suited to snorkeling.
Where to Stay: Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk is 38 stories high with floor-to-ceiling views of the Pacific, Ko‘olau Mountains, Diamond Head, and Honolulu skyline. trumphotelcollection.com
