What to Do in Honolulu
Waikiki is one of the most popular places to start, with beautiful white sand beaches, numerous oceanside activities, and plenty of surf schools for the adventurous beginner. Here you will find most of the large resort hotels on the island and the center of Honolulu's nightlife.
There's plenty of both exciting outdoor activities and indoor fun as well. Experience local marine life up close at Hanauma Bay, where a coral reef in the crater of an extinct volcano offers snorkeling and scuba diving. For great hiking with unparalleled views, check out Nu'uanu Pali lookout (six miles from downtown Honolulu) or challenge yourself at Diamond Head, an ancient volcanic crater than includes a four mile loop popular with runners.
Honolulu offers many outstanding museums and memorials commemorating its history, including the stunning Iolani Palace, once the official residence of the native Hawaiian monarchy. Visit Pearl Harbor, where you will find a number of sites commemorating the history of combat in the Pacific. The USS Missouri Memorial offers tours of the original battleship. Another solemn but beautiful tribute is found at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, honored by many visitors each year.
