What is Oahu famous for?

Oahu is known as the “gathering place” and is the third largest of the four main islands. It is the most populated of all the islands with over 1 million residents. It is home to Pearl Harbor, which was attacked by the Japanese in 1941. The north shore of the island has world famous surf spots featuring some of the largest waves ever ridden (in the winter months) at Waimea Bay, Banzai Pipeline and Sunset beach. 1. OAHU
