Step out of Honolulu with an excursion to Kailua Beach Park in Kailua--about 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, tour the pleasant surroundings at Makiki Trail, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip planning website .

Do a combination of taxi and flight from Poipu to Honolulu in 3 hours. Expect a daytime high around 87°F in October, and nighttime lows around 74°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
