Honolulu, Oahu — 6 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Take a break from the city and head to Diamond Head State Monument and Waikiki Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Shark Diving & Sunset Beach Park), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and North Shore Goodies (in Waialua). There's lots more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

Hawaii travel guide

4.4
The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
