Honolulu - Book 'em Danno

Honolulu is the US' most southwesterly large city and the financial centre of of the Pacific Ocean islands.

Honolulu has been the capital of the Hawaiian islands since 1845 and gained historical recognition following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor near the city on December 7, 1941.

It was also brought to life, although somewhat nefariously through crime and gangs, by the hit late 1960's TV show Hawaii Five-O (recently relaunched in 2010 for a modern audience).

Temperatures vary little throughout the months, with average high temperatures of 27-32 °C and lows of 19-24 °C throughout the year making it an ideal choice for vacationers and year-round sports activities, especially water sports.

Top 5 things to do in Honolulu

Diamond Head

Known to Hawaiians as Lēʻahi, Diamond Head is the remnant of a (hopefully) extinct volcano on the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu.

Its English name was given by British sailors in the 19th century, who mistook calcite crystals embedded in the rock for diamonds.

It's a 1.1km hike to the top of the crater's rim and takes around 2 hours for a round-trip over the mostly unpaved trail.

The view from the top is outstanding looking out over Waikīkī and the Pacific Ocean below. A great site for a afternoon picnic.

Waikiki Beach

Waikīkī beach is one of the most popular beaches in the Caribbean and was a retreat for Hawaiian royalty in the 1800s, long before it became popular with mainland residents.

Since the 1950s, this beach has been a tourist destination extraordinary and while the area is dominated by large skyscrapers and sun worshipers strutting their wears, you can still find a few sheltered areas further up along the coast where you can sit, relax and enjoy the scenery.

The beach hosts many events a year, including surf competitions, outdoor performances, hula dancing and outrigger canoe races.

Check out what's happening now from the Waikīkī Beach Cam.

USS Arizona/Pearl Harbour

Travelling a little west of Honolulu you'll arrive at Pearl Harbor and if you're in the Hawaii area, it's well worth at least a days visit.

Much of the harbor and surrounding lands is a United States Navy deep-water naval base. It is also the headquarters of the U.S. Pacific Fleet.

Most visitors will want to make their way to see the USS Arizona Memorial which marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors killed on-board the ship during the December 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

The memorial, dedicated in 1962, is visited by more than one million people annually.

Iolani Palace

Situated in downtown Honolulu, ʻIolani Palace, is the only royal palace in United States used as an official residence by a reigning monarch.

Two monarchs governed from ʻIolani Palace: King Kalākaua and Queen Liliʻuokalani.

After the monarchy was overthrown in 1893, the building was used as the capitol building for the Provisional Government, Republic, Territory, and State of Hawaii until 1969.

The palace was restored and opened to the public as a museum in 1978.

In the basement is a photographic display of the Palace, the Hawaiian crown jewels, orders and decorations given by the monarchs, and regalia worn by the high chiefs of the islands.

Hanauma Bay

Hanauma Bay was declared a Nature Preserve and a Marine Life Conservation District in 1967.

Being a nature reserve the Hawaiian government has taken measures to limit accessibility so parking is restricted and if the parking lot is full you will be turned away.

There is a regular shuttle bus from Waikīkī which takes you directly into the Bay avoiding all the hassles of parking.

Snorkeling and scuba are popular at the bay, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with the fish and marine life. Special classes are available for children.

There is also the option to take a short tram ride up to the top of the crater rim for spectacular views of Hanauma Bay down below.
