Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach Park. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Skydiving. Get out of town with these interesting Kahuku side-trips: Ka'ena Point State Park (in Waianae), Haleiwa (Laniakea Beach, Haleiwa Beach Park, & more) and Horseback Riding Tours (in Waialua). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sharks Cove, enjoy the sand and surf at Turtle Bay Beach, appreciate the history behind Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument, and explore the activities along Waimea Bay.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step off the beaten path and head to Waimanalo Beach and Photography Tours. You'll get in some beach time at Ko Olina Lagoons and Ala Moana Beach Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Kapolei), Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Kailua (Kayaking & Canoeing, Lanikai Beach, & more). There's lots more to do: find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, tour the pleasant surroundings at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, and explore the striking landscape at Halona Blowhole.
