Oahu

Oahu (pronounced [oˈʔɐhu]) or O'ahu /ˈɑːh/, known as "The Gathering Place", is the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands. It is home to about two-thirds of the population of the U.S. state of Hawaii. The state capital, Honolulu, is on Oahu's southeast coast. Including small close-in offshore islands such as Ford Island and the islands in Kāneohe Bay and off the eastern (windward) coast, it has a total land area of 596.7 sqmi, making it the 20th largest island in the United States. Along with the rest of the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is one of the largest and northernmost islands of Polynesia.

Panoramic of Hanauma Bay, a natural preserve. Snorkel to see colorful fish and maybe get a chance to see a green sea turtle and Hawaii's state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a!
