In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step off the beaten path and head to Koko Crater Trail and Kailua Beach Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Lanikai Beach (in Kailua) and Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, examine the collection at Bishop Museum, make a trip to The Byodo-In Temple, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

Barcelona, Spain to Honolulu is an approximately 22.5-hour flight. You'll gain 11 hours traveling from Barcelona to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit warmer weather when traveling from Barcelona in November: highs in Honolulu hover around 34°C, while lows dip to 26°C. On the 7th (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive to Haleiwa.
