When you think of Oahu, Hawaii, odds are you think of relaxing in the sun on the beach under a palm tree. You definitely don’t have any thoughts of things to do on Oahu when it rains. So that’s where this article comes in! Here are 12 things to do on Oahu when it rains!
As an Oahu local, I know there are so many things to do on Oahu, Hawaii, especially considering its less than 600 square miles. From beaches to hikes to festivals to restaurants, Oahu really does have it all.

Huge waves and surfers. That’s what the North Shore, Oahu is known for across the world.

On Oahu, we don’t have the pull-up-and-take-a-picture waterfalls that many of the other Hawaiian Islands do. No, you have to go on a bit of a hike to reach any of our waterfalls on the island. That said, the Oahu waterfall hikes are definitely worth a little bit of extra exercise.
I’ve been missing my hiking days back home just a little bit, so I’ve decided to write this blog post about one of my favorite waterfall hikes back home on Oahu: Likeke Falls.
This is probably one of my favorite hikes because the effort-to-payoff ratio is pretty good. You hike (or walk slightly uphill) for a solid twenty minutes, and there is a nice-sized waterfall there for you.

Likeke Falls is a nice balance, and that makes it a great hike for kids! Almost every time I’ve gone, I’ve seen a few kids there, playing in the little pools beneath the waterfall.
