Honolulu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Escape the urban bustle at Diamond Head State Monument and Waikiki Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Kailua Beach Park and Ala Moana Beach Park. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Waianae (Swim with Dolphins & Ka'ena Point State Park), Pupukea (Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument & Ehukai Beach Park) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park, Waimea Bay, &more). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, kick back and relax at Lanikai Beach, walk around Kapiolani Regional Park, and steep yourself in history at Queen Emma Summer Palace.

San Diego to Honolulu is an approximately 8-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -2 hour difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from San Diego in June: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 86°F and lows are around 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) so you can travel to Kihei.

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Ka'anapali Beach and Wailea Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Zipline and Iao Valley. Get out of town with these interesting Kihei side-trips: Lahaina (Napili Beach, Lahaina Banyan Court, &more), Waiehu Beach Park (in Wailuku) and Kapalua (Kapalua Beach & D.T. Fleming Park). The adventure continues: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, enjoy the sea views from McGregor Point Light, kick back and relax at Ulua Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Makena Beach.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Kihei trip itinerary builder app.

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Kihei takes 3 hours. In June in Kihei, expect temperatures between 87°F during the day and 71°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Hana.

Hana is one of the most isolated communities in Hawaii, with a permanent population of just over 1,000 people.
Get in touch with nature at Haleakala Crater and Hana Highway - Road to Hana. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Hana Coast Gallery and Kahanu Garden. Step out of Hana to go to Kipahulu and see Charles Lindbergh's Grave, which is approximately 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: stroll through Wai'anapanapa State Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Pools at Ohe'o, get a taste of the local shopping with Laura Mango Art Gallery, and explore by horseback at Pipiwai Trail.
