On the 14th (Fri), contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach. Keep things going the next day: stroll through Koko Crater Railway Trail, then take a memorable drive along Makapu'u Point, then enjoy the sand and surf at Lanikai Beach, and finally take some stellar pictures from Nuuanu Pali Lookout.

To see traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Honolulu tour itinerary planning site .
