The jewel of the Hawaiian Islands, Honolulu, is the state's most populated and robust city. It's a destination where natural beauty and sophisticated city life complement one another. The ashen-white beaches of Waikiki, the volcanic cone of Diamond Head, and the never-ending nightlife of trendy clubs are among the many draws that bring visitors from around the world.
Honolulu can accommodate every type of traveler. For those that prefer a relaxing island getaway, sun-bathed beaches and emerald-green forests await. Visitors can add to the experience of majestic mountain scenery once the sun goes down with a vibrant after-hours club scene, a luau at Paradise Cove, or a Society Of Seven show. For those with a taste for the daring, parasailing on Maunalua Bay, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and even shark dives are easily had. The North Shore and the Polynesian Cultural Center are also popular destinations for visitors - or enjoy the perfect Hawaii weather with a game of golf or a day trip to Volcanoes National Park.
