You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lanikai Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Take a break from the city and head to Koko Crater Railway Trail and Swim with Dolphins. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei) and Haleiwa (Laniakea Beach & Skydiving). There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, stroll the grounds of Hawaiian Memorial Park Cemetery & Funeral Services, and explore the galleries of Queen Emma Summer Palace.
