    Waikiki Beach

    203 reviews

    Waikiki has it all. Spend a day learning to surf, canoe paddling, or riding on a catamaran sailboat. The famous beach may be crowded but it is the best place to people watch, sunbathe and swim.

    Hanauma Bay Marine Preserve

    147 reviews

    Hanauma Bay is a must-see spot on Oahu. The views from the top of the beach overlooking the bay are stunning, and a great place to park up on a bench early in the morning for some quiet time. The beach down below is full of corals, but has been overfished for years prior to becoming a reserve, so it's ...

    Diamond Head State Monument

    125 reviews

    Very touristy. Don't ever expect to have the trail to yourself. Costs $1 to walk in and $5 for a car to park there. During peak times, you'll be waiting in the full lot for a space to park. Overall, its a relatively easy hike with decent views and a couple of scenic points up along the way. I see ...

    Pearl Harbor

    120 reviews

    Pearl Harbor is legendary. We all know what happened in World War II and how it propelled America into the war. On this beautiful base, one can see remnants of that day at the USS Arizona Memorial. Located adjacent to Hickam Air Force Base, the decades had us going back and forth between the bases as they kept outdoing each ...

    Arizona Memorial

    63 reviews

    There's a good reason this WWII historic site is the #1 most visited tourist attraction in Hawaii. Examining the events of December 7, 1941, when the Japanese military attacked Pearl Harbor, this National Park Service (NPS) site is an emotionally moving place to visit, no matter what your political persuasion. A brand-new visitor center and museum opened in December 2010, ...

    Ala Moana Center

    79 reviews

    If you can't find the merchandise you're looking for in this behemoth there's a chance it doesn't exist. Usually pretty easy to find a parking spot even though the mall is typically packed -- but it can be a maze trying to weave your way out. Ewa (west) end is undergoing major renovations.

    Nuuanu Pali Lookout

    55 reviews

    This place is SUPER Windy. I don't know why. But if you're wearing a hat, it might get blown off! :) Don't wear a dress when you're coming here! Hahaha. This is a short 10 minutes or less thing you can do while you're in Hawaii. It's right along the highway and there isn't any hike or anything here. It's ...

    Iolani Palace

    37 reviews

    One can pay for either an audio guide or an actual guided tour of the palace. One is required for entrance and neither are cheap. Unfortunately, the latter is only available for a small portion of the day. I had to take the audio guide and it did a decent job of presenting the information. The restorers have done a ...

    The Honolulu Zoo

    38 reviews

    It was a nice surprise! We found a big open space with great gardens and not too many people. It's very well located, just steps from Waikiki. There is a few exhibits under construction but there is plenty to see. It's right next to Kapiolani Park where there is always a Festival or Craft Fair going on. We spent 2 ...

    Manoa Falls

    30 reviews

    Fun hike with great photo ops at the falls. They have spread rocks/shells along most of the muddy areas (except near the top) so we managed to keep our shoes fairly clean!

    Duke Kahanamoku Statue

    26 reviews

    The classic souvenir postcard shot of Waikiki has to be the statue of Olympian swimmer and Waikiki "beachboy" surfer Duke Kahanamoku. Often draped with fresh flower lei, the statue caused some controversy because it shows Duke with his back turned to the sea, something smart surfers don't do.

    National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific

    23 reviews

    Not exactly the kind of place you bring your children to and let them run amok, this somber facility deserves reserved enthusiasm as it is the final resting place for thousands of America's bravest. Absolutely perfectly maintained, the landscaping and statues here show the great care taken to pay these fallen individuals their due respect. Thoughtful visitors could lose themselves ...

    Bishop Museum

    The Bishop Museum is pretty cool. Except for their Planetarium Show. That one was horrible :( The museum is big enough that you could spend few hours here.. but if you're the type of person that like to walk through pretty fast.. you could see a lot of it quickly too. There is a lot of the island's history shown ...
