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 places in Oahu — clocking in at just under three hours and 84 miles from the picturesque north shore to Ewa.

What are some of the most fascinating abandoned spots in Hawaii?

Despite its small size, the Hawaiian Islands are home to some mighty unique abandoned spots. While there are many spots in abandoned Hawaii we would consider to be extremely remote - like the abandoned airstrip on Tern Atoll - there are others that are found in highly populated areas of the islands - like the abandoned zoo in Manoa Valley or the entire neighborhood on Hickam Air Force Base that was abandoned mysteriously.

What are Hawaii's most haunted spots? 

From a high school haunted by a crying girl to roads, hotels, and buildings with some supernatural residents, the Aloha State is home to various ghosts that have decided to make the islands their permanent home in the afterlife, but nowhere is considered more haunted than the notoriously spooky Kaimuki House, where a man-eating ghost from Japanese folklore is said to live. The haunting has been well-documented over the years and is quite the tale.

What are the creepiest places in Hawaii? 

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, it's hard to deny the spooky energy felt at various historic sites across the islands of Hawaii — like Mo’okini Luakini Heiau, which was one of the first temples to be built on the island and has an evil history rife with human sacrifice. If you're looking for the most unique Halloween attraction in Hawaii, you'll want to check out Hawaii Plantation Village, which is not only the site for one of Oahu's most popular October destinations but is rumored to be legitimately haunted.
