Oahu may be number three in size among its fellow islands in the Hawaiian chain, but it is first in population. Nearly 900,000 people share Oahu’s 600 square miles of mountains and beaches. Oahu is also the most visited of all the Hawaiian islands, at approximately 4.5 million visitors annually. Honolulu, Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head and Waikiki are all located on Oahu. The island of Oahu is formed from the remnants of two large shield volcanoes, the older Waianae Volcano on Oahu’s west side, and the younger Koolau Volcano on Oahu’s east side.
