Oahu offers a lot of attractions. Beaches, waterfalls, hiking, restaurants, but a lot of tourists come to the island and end up never leaving Waikiki! There is so much of the beautiful nature to be seen that staying downtown for your whole stay is such a shame.
Something you may not have considered as part of your itinerary is horseback riding! There are a variety of ranches to choose from across the island that offer tours, private rides, lessons, and trail rides. Some even have ponies for younger children! An alternative choice would be to enjoy the beach and horseback riding at the same time. You can admire the scenery in a unique and fun way with professional riders.
Look for beach horseback riding on the North Shore through companies such as Hawaii Polo and Turtle Bay Resort. If you're an island resident and looking for a fun weekend activity, or an adventure you may not have experienced before, this could be for you! You may find that horseback riding is your thing, and want to purchase your own gear. You can get Champion equestrian gear online easily, without having to search the island for places to purchase.
Beach horseback riding is a great way to enjoy the island, spend a romantic evening, or impress your relatives coming to visit! Not a lot of people know how affordable trail rides can be, many of my friends have never even heard of or considered this as a weekend activity. I highly recommend trying it! The beaches here are so beautiful, but even laying around tanning on the beach can get old after a while. Try something new and go horseback riding!
