For the best beach parties on the islands, America's only royal palace, dozens of exciting outdoor sports activities, and a fantastic introduction to the paradise that is Hawaii all in wrapped up in one breathtaking package, vacations to Honolulu are the way to go.
Waikiki Beach is virtually synonymous with Honolulu but there's a great deal more to do in this city by the sea than just visit the beach. You can pick and choose between hundreds of restaurants serving the best of Hawaiian cuisine, shake a leg at a seafront nightclub or two, or hike up to Diamond Head, whose breathtaking views will raise the bar for your standards of scenic locales. For more intellectual pursuits, the sprawling Bishop Museum compound is packed to the hilt with cultural and historical artifacts honouring the traditions of Hawaiiana, while Pearl Harbour bears reminders of troubled times with its World War II submarines and survivor memorials.
If the energy, atmosphere, and essence of Hawaii and its people can be typified by just one city, Honolulu would be it. So book your vacation, pack your swimsuit, and get going.
