Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Pupukea (Banzai Pipeline & Shark's Cove), Waimanalo (Bellows Field Beach Park & Waimanalo Beach) and Haleiwa (Waimea Valley, Waimea Bay, &more). There's still lots to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with Dolphin Quest, step off the mainland to explore Magic Island, explore the world behind art at Honolulu Museum of Art, and trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail.

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.
