This Haunted Road Trip Will Lead You To The Scariest Places In Hawaii

October is finally here, and while the Hawaiian Islands don’t experience fall weather like much of the mainland, we can certainly partake in all things Halloween, from candy corn and pumpkin carving to haunted houses. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good haunted house as much as the next person, but I’m personally partial to real tales of the paranormal, of apparitions and spooky sounds at haunted places. Luckily, Oahu is full of haunted places, from hotels and highways to parks and universities. And here at Only In Hawaii, we’ve gone ahead and crafted the perfect road trip across Oahu, stopping at ten of the island’s most famous haunts.

The entire trip clocks in at just under 50 miles and two hours of drive time, perfect for an evening of ghost hunting. And while we chose to journey from Kapolei to Honolulu, you can certainly reverse this trip and do it in the opposite direction if you live in town.

For an extra-spooky experience, we recommend combining this haunted trip with either this road trip Oahu’s most abandoned places, or this terrifying drive.
