Hi my fellow WAFs! My name is Caitlin, my husband + I live on the island of Oahu, HI, where he is stationed at Joint Base Pearl Harbor/Hickam Field. For this 3 year adventure we chose to live off base in Ewa Beach on the west side of the island.  I’ll be honest, I really don’t enjoy going into Honolulu/Waikiki too much, so a lot of these recommendations are for things outside of the city.  But whether or not you choose to live on or off base, or you’re visiting or moving here, I hope this Hickam Survival Guide helps you to love this island as much as I do!

Things to know about Hickam Air Force Base

A 100% outdoor lifestyle! i.e. hiking, beach, attempting new water sports like paddle boarding, surfing + photography.
