$18.00
The Hawaiian island and tropical paradise of Oahu is best known for its beautiful beaches, warm blue waters, plethora of incredible hikes, stunning mountain landscapes, lush greenery, and vibrant surf culture. Now imagine: roaming the island in your own camper van rental… Waking up to the sounds of the ocean, setting up camp near the beach under a blanket of stars at night, and spending your days cruising around to one of Oahu’s incredible hikes, beaches, and surf spots - sound pretty nice? Then this guide is for you! The reality of camper van vacations in Hawaii is that they can be a little tricky to navigate! The state has a strict law against sleeping in your vehicle and the island of Oahu has no state or county campsites open for car camping. BUT that doesn’t mean you can’t have an incredible camper van vacation! In fact, exploring Oahu in a campervan has been my absolute favorite way to experience the island. Which is exactly why I created this guide! To show you how to easily and LEGALLY plan a campervan vacation. With a little planning and preparation with the help of this guide, renting a camper van on Oahu can be an unforgettable adventure that allows you to see the island in a whole new way. Here’s exactly what you can expect from my Oahu Camper Van Vacation guide 👇 This guide is the result of hours upon hours of planning, research, and my in-person experience (I’ve visited Oahu over 7 times now & have done this exact camper van vacation myself). It includes fun features such as an interactive map, directions that connect directly to your phone’s Google or Apple Maps app, and the exact coordinates to some of my favorite activities, campervan rentals, camp sites, beaches, food spots, hiking trails, & more! This guide will focus on the North Shore and eastern coast of Oahu mainly with a bonus Waikiki mini-guide at the end! The guide lays out instructions to help you plan your camper van vacation including: 1. Instructions and insider tips on how to legally plan your camper van vacation 2. 10+ camper van rental options with a variety of amenities to choose from including the exact van I used 3. 7 different campsite suggestions around the island that are set up specifically for camper vans (all come with bathrooms!!) including the place that I stayed (& loved!) during my own trip 4. Over a dozen of my favorite outdoor activities (including 7 hikes, 6 must-visit beaches, my favorite tours for swimming with wild dolphins and snorkeling with sharks, how to kayak or boat to the ocean sandbar, and surfboard lessons/rentals) 5. 10+ of my favorite island eateries 6. A mini-guide to Waikiki including my favorite hotels, food spots, and things to do 7. Educational resources & information on how to be a responsible traveler when visiting the islands of Hawaii 8. Direct hyperlinks to every resource you could need to book your trip 9. Behind the scenes exclusive photos and videos from me Plus it’s mobile friendly when you download the Thatch App for free so you can easily access all of the info right from your phone! I have hand-crafted this guide specifically for adventure travelers (like me!) and feel confident you will have an amazing trip with this guide by your side 😏 As a part of your purchase of the guide, here are a few promises I can make you: 1. This is a LIVING guide: I will update it as I find more information and discover more places which means you have lifetime access to all updated information as it’s added! 2. I only make guides based on areas I have not only been to, but know well! I include both activities that I have done myself as well as those that are on my bucketlist for next time I visit. I will always call out the ones I have not done yet and provide you the exact resources you need to experience them yourself! 3. These guides are completely transparent! You can be sure that all unfiltered opinions I provide are my own 🙃 If I include any sponsored information or affiliate links, I will be sure to call these out directly. This guide truly is everything you need to plan your campervan vacation to Oahu all in one place. I can’t wait for you to experience this incredible place for yourself!
