This book is an indispensable guide to the "Real" Oahu, far away
from the malls, casinos and resorts. This book is designed to
provide the adventurous traveler with new, exciting and safe
travel options to the crown jewel of the Hawaiian Islands.
This book does not focus on the main tourist spots in Oahu but instead focuses on those areas of the Islands that
are relatively unspoiled by the tourist industry, yet still
accessible by the adventuresome tourist. If you are looking for
a book that describes the luxury resorts and shopping malls, this is not the book for you.
On the other hand, this is not a camping book. All destinations
in this book have clean, safe hotels, fantastic restaurants and
friendly natives. What you won’t find are fast-food chains,
strip-malls and the schmaltz that is found in most major
Oahu tourist areas.
The areas we describe in this book are developed enough to be
comfortable (air conditioning, cell phones, Internet and
Television), yet undeveloped enough to retain their original
charm. Americans find themselves with more
disposable income and the nearby Oahu beckons,
offering cheap airfares, a warm climate and great water sports.
