We Dare You To Take This Road Trip To Oahu’s Most Abandoned Places

When people move on and industry crumbles, the remains are often abandoned amid the landscape – and the Hawaiian Islands are no exception. Even on the highly populated island of Oahu, abandoned places are common – if you know where to look, that is. From abandoned highways and royal residences to sugar mills and telegraph stations, there is something strangely beautiful about man-made structures being taken back by the land. That’s why we created this Oahu road trip to eight of the most famous abandoned sites – clocking in at just under three hours and 84 miles from the picturesque north shore to Ewa.
