Where to stay in Honolulu

About Honolulu

Perched on Oahu’s south shore, Honolulu is the sun-kissed capital of Hawaii. Polynesian at heart, the city is an intoxicating mix of sun, sand and traditional Hawaiian culture. Soak up resort vibes in Waikiki, then head downtown for a glimpse at the real Honolulu. Dive headfirst into history at Pearl Harbour’s USS Arizona Memorial, or stretch your legs with a sunrise hike up Diamond Head.

Things to Do

For most holidaymakers, Waikiki is a slice of paradise. Fringed by a stunning crescent shaped beach, it serves as the beating heart of Hawaii’s tourism scene. The beach is backed by swaying palm trees and luxe high-rise hotels, with plenty of opportunities to shop, dine and indulge.

When it comes to history, Honolulu serves up a string of fascinating sights and attractions. Relive the WWII attack on Pearl Harbour at the USS Arizona Memorial, or tour USS Missouri. If you’re downtown, why not climb the art deco inspired Aloha Tower or visit the magnificent Iolani Palace?

For adventure seekers, Diamond Head calls. Hike to the summit for stunning views, or explore the hiking trails of the mist-shrouded Koʻolau Range. If you prefer the beach, hit Hanauma Bay for snorkelling or Ala Moana Beach for a family-friendly day of fun.

If you love food, Honolulu serves up a smorgasbord of delights. Explore the street stalls of Chinatown, savour a bowl of seafood poke, and wash it all down with a Mai Tai cocktail. When you tire of the beach, head to the open-air Ala Moana Center for a dose of retail therapy.

Getting Around

Honolulu’s local bus system is efficient and easy to navigate. Most Waikiki hotels and resorts offer airport pick-ups, with plenty of taxis also available. Shuttles and trolleys run to most tourist attractions, which makes it easy to explore Honolulu’s big sights.
