Oahu is the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands; however, it is home to about two-thirds of the population of the State of Hawaii. It is famous for its beaches like Waikiki or the North Shore's famous Sunset Beach.

The 300-year-old Kingdom of Oʻahu was once ruled by the most ancient Aliʻi in all of the Hawaiian Islands. The first great king of Oʻahu was Mailikukahi, the lawmaker, who was followed by many generations of monarchs.
