What to do in Honolulu
Honolulu is Hawaii's capital city and also the main gateway to the rest of the state. It's a major tourist destination for both local and international travellers. Located in the island of Oahu, the city is filled with natural wonders, rich culture, and great food. You’ll find it easy to love this lovely island.
Honolulu is popular worldwide for its beautiful beaches. Make your way to Waikiki Beach for some fun under the sun. You can get a nice tan, drink or dine by the beach, or just swim around. The large crescent-shaped beach is also a dream for surfies, and has numerous hotels, restaurants, and stores along the oceanfront too.
Do you want to check out the best beaches in Honolulu? You should visit Ala Moana Park, Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach, and the scenic Makapu'u Beach. If you plan your trip around September to November, you can even catch pro surfers perform exhibitions at Oahu Beach. Sometimes they even give basic surfing lessons!
Want to spend a few dollars on souvenirs? Try Waikiki's chic open-air beach markets. Shop till you drop in Ala Moana Center, the world's biggest open-air shopping center. For a more intimate shopping, go to Luxury Row for high-end items. And on the other side of the budget scale, Waikele Premium Outlets will give you a friendlier shopping experience.
Know more about Honolulu's way of life and join the city's biggest events. There's the premier cultural event of Hawaii, the annual Honolulu Festival. September is when Waikiki Hoolaelea is celebrated. This is Hawaii's biggest block party, where people take to the streets for food, fun, and entertainment.
When to visit Honolulu
The best time to visit Honolulu is around September to November when airline prices and hotel rates are cheaper, and the weather is mild. But there's a greater chance of rain, so pack your raincoat, galoshes, and brolly just in case. If you want to get the most righteous waves or go whale watching, visit during December to April.
Australians can fly to the US and visit Hawaii for up to 90 days with the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP). But before your trip, you must obtain a valid authorization through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA). Your passport must also be valid for at least six months from the date you enter the US.
