Honolulu, Oahu

— 3 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.
Visiting Diamond Head State Monument and Sunset Beach Park will get you outdoors. We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Step out of Honolulu to go to Haleiwa and see Waimea Bay, which is approximately 54 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and make a trip to North Shore.

To see photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary site.

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Toronto in April: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 33°C and lows are around 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Volcano.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

— 1 night
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 10th (Sat), examine the collection at Jagger Museum and then get impressive views of Kīlauea. On the 11th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: explore the striking landscape at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku) and then hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead.

To find where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Volcano trip itinerary planning tool.

You can fly from Honolulu to Volcano in 4.5 hours. In April, daytime highs in Volcano are 32°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Heart of the Kona Coast

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.
