Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Step out of the city life by going to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Kapiolani Regional Park. Next up on the itinerary: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and hike along Diamond Head State Monument.
