Snorkeling and jetski in Honolulu, Hawaii

Visiting Honolulu is in many ways very much similar to visiting other large cities. Honolulu is a large city with traffic, tall building, and all the pros and cons of a large metropolitan area. I enjoyed Honolulu, but of course the rest of Hawaii is much more interesting, more beautiful and more romantic.

While in Honolulu, there are plenty of things to see. Hanoma Bay is one of the nicest beaches to see. There are thousands of fish everywhere and the entire bay is truly beautiful. Also, when I was there I was snorkling with turtles.

Another nice place to visit is Diamond Head, which is basically a look out over the island. I liked the climb up, even though Hawaii is naturally quite hot. Be sure to bring water when you go.

Finally, go visit Pearl Harbour is another must visit. Nothing exhilarating to report about a place that was witness to one of World War II's most desasterous defeat of the US Pacific fleet. Anyhow, like any of these memorial sites, it's important to go and understand the history and prey for the victims.

While in Hawaii, visit one of the many nice romantic beaches, restaurants, bars etc.

Thanks, Pear harbour is basically a port with warships. The memorial also has the USS Arizona which is still in the water and you can walk around still seeing some oil escape from the belly of the ship. You can only imagine how bad it must have been back then... You can also get on the USS Missouri and get a real good feeling of how humongous these ships really are.

Hey,
This is a good one.
But what should I see on Pearl Harbour and how should I get there?

Hawaii, the land of palm trees and sunshineThe Hawaii Maritime Center is another building on the shore and hosts Hawaii's seafaring past with exhibits from ancient times to 19th century, the replica Polynesian canoe Hokulea being one of them. When you say Honolulu you don’t actually think about fine arts, but much to some tourists’ surprise there are plenty examples on display in the Academy of Arts. Some of the greatest artists have some works on display: Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Monet, just to name a few and there are also some great depictions of Hawaii and ancient Chinese ceramics and bronzes. Besides fine arts you can view exhibits of genuine Polynesian... Read more »
