The main gateway to the Hawaiian Islands, Honolulu is a modern cosmopolitan city with a unique blend of cultures and cuisines, energetic arts and nightlife scenes, a historic district which boasts the USs only royal palace, and a variety of great shops. It is surrounded by some of the world’s most spectacular coastal cliffs and epic forest trails offering breathtaking views of enchanted bays and beyond. Yet Honolulu’s biggest draw is undoubtedly its beaches — from Waikiki, the ever-bustling surfers paradise on Oahus southeastern shore, to the hundreds of near-deserted coves where your sundowner companions could be a family of sea turtles.
