Publisher Comments:

The most comprehensive yet easy-to-use guidebook series to Hawaii brings you the second edition of Oahu Revealed. Written by the author of the best-selling guides, Maui Revealed, Hawaii The Big Island Revealed and The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook. He actually hikes all the trails, rides the boats, scuba dives the reefs, dines in the restaurants, reviews all the resorts, snorkels the coastline, explores the hidden waterfalls and shares all the secrets that he finds. Everything is reviewed anonymously. This book and a rental car are all you need to discover what makes Oahu so exciting.

The 20 specially created maps include access to even the most remote beaches, landmarks (so you always know where you are), hiking trails and numerous details in an easy-to-follow format.

Clear, concise directions to get to those hard-to-find places such as deserted beaches, hidden waterfalls, pristine rain forests, spectacular coastlines and scores of hidden gems listed nowhere else. Driving tours of the island let you structure your trip your way.

Web site with links to every business, last minute updates and more. Plus Web pages that expand on all accommodation reviews with aerial photos of all the resorts (so you'll know if oceanfront really means oceanfront) and our trademark "brutally honest reviews."

Special sections on Beaches, Attractions and Adventures.

Symbols quickly identify recommended sights and companies. This book shows you which companies really are the bestàand which to avoid.

Synopsis:

Most travel titles are put together in a few weeks by visiting travel writers. Wizard guidebooks take over a year to compile and the writers are residents who personally and anonymously review every facet of the island. Their maps are the best you'll find. From restaurants to helicopter companies to scuba to beaches to trails. They see it all and show you the best the island has to offer. They also reveal who's the worst and who to stay away from. All told in a frank, humorous way that keeps the reading fun.
