Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ko Olina Lagoons. Get in touch with nature at Scuba & Snorkeling and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Your inner history buff will appreciate National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and Byodo-In Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park) and Waimea Valley (in Haleiwa). There's still lots to do: hike along Koko Crater Railway Trail, appreciate the views at Nuuanu Pali Lookout, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and stroll through Kapiolani Regional Park.
