Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Kailua Beach Park and Waikiki Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Lanikai Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Dole Plantation (in Wahiawa), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, get engrossed in the history at Iolani Palace, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ala Moana Beach Park, and explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery-Pacific.

To find photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip planner.
