Warm breezes, swaying palm trees, pristine beaches, and warm Pacific waters welcome you during Oahu winters. With the sun shining high overhead and temperatures hovering in the high 70s year-round, every month is ideal for a tropical beach vacation on Oahu. Pack your swimwear and a jacket for evenings with cool ocean breezes, and come ready for a warm Hawaiian winter getaway. Check out these fantastic and fun winter activities on Oahu.
If you’re traveling to Oahu during winter, it is the perfect season for whale watching. These gentle giants migrate to the Hawaiian waters from Alaska between November and May, with peak sightings during January to March. Nearby Ocean Joy Cruises and Ko Olina Ocean Adventures offer boat tours geared specifically toward whale watching. Cruise alongside dolphins and sea turtles and watch blue whales as they breach and play. Enjoy the beauty of the unspoiled Wai’anae coastline and take in an epic Hawaiian sunset from the sea. Whales can also often be spotted along the horizon from some of Oahu’s shorelines as you lounge on the beach.
The beautiful Ko Olina Beach Park and Ko Olina Lagoons offer the luxurious beach experience you’ve been dreaming of. These white crescent sand beaches are protected by rock barriers, creating a tranquil oasis perfect for sunbathing and swimming. The calm, protected waters are perfect for families traveling with children or those looking for a relaxing day soaking up the sun. Try the popular activity of paddle boarding, skimming along the top of the turquoise blue water while getting in a great workout. This is also a great spot to swim with Hawaii’s beautiful sea life. Rent a snorkel mask and fins and descend into the underwater world to swim with tropical fish and sea turtles. A 1.5 mile paved path joins this strip of beaches, providing flawless coastline views on a morning walk or jog.
