The name means “sheltered bay”, but you can let it all hang out in Honolulu (well, most of you). Known for its beautiful beaches, glistening surfers and the biggest party scene in Hawaii, it’s an international hot spot for a dang reason.
You still waiting for an invitation? Here it is. Pack your swim trucks, pick out your Honolulu hotel and prepare to get lei-ed by the ocean!
After repeatedly listening to Beyoncé tracks, it’s common to think of yourself as a queen (or king). So it’s only right to see what a real palace by the waves actually looks like. Make your way to ‘Iolani Palace, where Hawaii’s last monarch lived before the United States overthrew her kingdom (#rude). Fun fact for tipsy trivia night: it’s the only official palace in the United States.
After your visit, you might be hurting for some crown jewels, so go shopping in the Waikiki Beach area. You can wander through hundreds of stores and don’t worry—you’ll find more than puka shell necklaces (unless you’re still rocking that trend? No judgement). Plus, this area lights up at night as the de facto party zone. Word to the wise: you might want to pick a hotel in Honolulu close to this strip if you’re walking home in heels.
And if you want to walk off those mai tais in the a.m., a climb up the steep steps of Diamond Head should clear you up. If the view looks familiar, that’s because it often pops up on postcards. Who knows? You might even be able to see your Honolulu accommodation from up top.
Most travellers arrive to the city through the Honolulu International Airport (HNL), located 9 km north from downtown. From there, you have a gambit of bus, car hire (from lastminute.co.nz!) and taxi options back to your Hawaii accommodation easy-peasy.
