In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get outdoors at Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay. Relax by the water at Turtle Bay Beach and Ko Olina Lagoons. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Ka'ena Point State Park (in Waianae) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park, admire the verdant scenery at Nuuanu Pali Lookout, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

Helsinki, Finland to Honolulu is an approximately 26-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern European Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -12 hour difference. In January, Honolulu is much hotter than Helsinki - with highs of 31°C and lows of 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) so you can travel to Hilo.

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
You'll get in some beach time at Honaunau Bay and Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay). Escape the urban bustle at Kealakekua Bay and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kailua-Kona: Big Island Bees (in Captain Cook) and The Painted Church (in Honaunau). The adventure continues: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, get a new perspective on things with Jack's Diving Locker, relax in the rural setting at Kona Joe Coffee, and appreciate the views at Pololu Valley Lookout.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Kapalua Coastal Trail. You'll get in some beach time at Kamaole Beach Park II and Kapalua Beach. Explore Lahaina's surroundings by going to Kula (Surfing Goat Dairy & Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery).
