Having a rental vehicle is preferable in order to get around Oahu. You can always use Uber for short hops or use the The Bus system. There are always shuttles or tour buses, and trolleys available to get around.
Suggested Driving Tours:
There are two driving tours on Oahu. You can combine the two if you want, but it is better to split them especially if you make frequent stops and want some beach/dining/shopping time.
1. Mini-circle island tour.
Start in Waikiki:
Diamond Head Lookout & Lighthouse on Diamond Head Road.
Continue on Diamond Head Road. When Diamond Head Road turns to go around Diamond Head, go straight on Kahala Ave. This will go through a residential area with nice houses. (Note): You can also take Diamond Head around to the entrance to Diamond Head. Even if you cannot do the hike, you can go through the tunnel into the crater to see what it looks like. Turn around just before the pay booth. Also Kapiolani Community College (KCC) has a nice cactus display. KCC is almost straight across from the entrance to Diamond Head.
After about 2 miles on Kahala Ave, turn left onto Keala'olu Ave (just before Kahala Hotel & Resort, formerly Kahala Mandarin).
Take Keala'olu Ave to Kalaniana'ole Hwy (72).
Continue around island to Hanauma Bay (don't need to go to the visitors center). You can get some excellent views & pictures from the steps and lookouts that go up and to the left of the visitors center. $1 for parking
Continue to Halona Blowhole and Halona Cove (From Here to Eternity Beach) next to it. Halona Blowhole lookout also overlooks Sandy Beach.
Makapuu Lighthouse Trail - Just past Sandy Beach and just after the road turns inland, look for a gate and a paved trail on the right. Trail is about 1 mile one way. You can often see whales from near the lighthouse (between months of November and April).
Continue to Makapuu Pt. Lookout. Overlooks Manana (Rabbit) Island & Makapuu Beach &Sea Life Park.
Continue to Waimanalo Bay Recreation Area (just past Waimanalo Beach). Scenic isolated beach (just before Bellows AFB). Bellows Beach is also nice. Open to the public on weekends.
Continue to Highway 61 (Pali Highway). Make a left onto Pali Highway. Take it back to Honolulu, stopping at Pali Lookout.
Note: If you were to make a right onto Pali Hwy (63), you could go to Kailua and Lanikai Beaches. You can stop there with either tour.
2. Circle island tour.
Take Pali Highway (61) across to Kaneohe. Stop at Pali Lookout.
Continue to Kaneohe. Make a left onto Highway (83) to Kaneohe (or go straight if you want to go to Kailua and Lanikai Beaches).

Go back to Kahekili Hwy. Turn left. Go about two miles. Turn left into Valley of the Temples (Byodo-In Temple). Very Scenic.
Back to Kahekili Hwy. Continue around the island. In a mile or so Kahekili Hwy will end and intersect with Kamehameha Hwy (83). Continue around the island to Haleiwa.
