In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Start off your visit on the 2nd (Fri): explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and then admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls. On the 3rd (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach and then explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

Barcelona, Spain to Honolulu is an approximately 23-hour flight. You'll gain 11 hours traveling from Barcelona to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. August in Honolulu sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
