Oahu for a Girls Getaway

The Gathering Isle, with its natural beauty and diverse city life, makes for a tranquil and exciting girls’-only getaway. Although catching up with your girls is a fun bonding experience no matter where you travel, Oahu offers relaxation and adventure and city and country life.

With a plethora of shopping, dining, outdoor and entertainment options, you can sunbathe and gossip on the beach, eat dinner at a popular fusion restaurant nearby, then dress up in your best outfits and sip drinks and dance the night away at bars in Waikiki or downtown.
