Kapolei ©
Kapolei is a master-planned community in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States, on the island of Oahu. Take a break from the city and head to Ko Olina Lagoons and Koko Crater Railway Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kailua Beach Park and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kapolei: Ka'ena Point State Park (in Waianae), Honolulu (Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head State Monument, & more) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). There's much more to do: take a memorable drive along Makapu'u Point, explore the striking landscape at Halona Blowhole, explore the gorgeous colors at Pele's Chair, and appreciate the views at Nuuanu Pali Lookout.
