You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Mauna Kea Beach. There's much more to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, contemplate the long history of Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, and get engrossed in the history at Kona Coffee Living History Farm.

You'll get in some beach time at Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach. Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace. Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and appreciate the history behind King Kamehameha Statue.
