Kahuku is a census-designated place (CDP) in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu, County of Honolulu, Hawaii, United States. Kick off your visit on the 24th (Fri): appreciate the history behind Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument, get interesting insight from Tours, then look for gifts at Pakaloha Bikinis - Oahu, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Sharks Cove. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: kick back and relax at Turtle Bay Beach, then enjoy the sand and surf at Laniakea Beach, and then stroll through Sunset Beach Park.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Kahuku road trip planning site .

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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Lanikai Beach and Ko Olina Lagoons. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Ala Moana Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Waianae (Mermaid Caves & Swim with Dolphins). There's much more to do: take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, browse the exhibits of Iolani Palace, and take some stellar pictures from Puu Ualakaa State Park.

Find out how to plan Honolulu trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You'll get in some beach time at Natural Bridges State Beach and Shark Fin Cove. Step off the beaten path and head to Wine Tours & Tastings and Walking tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Francisco: Dutton Goldfield Winery (in Sebastopol), Sapphire Hill Winery (in Healdsburg) and Francis Ford Coppola Winery (in Geyserville). And it doesn't end there: admire the majestic nature at Armstrong Redwood State Reserve, do a tasting at VJB Cellars, examine the collection at de Young Museum, and don't miss a visit to To Honor Surfing Monument.

To see other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the San Francisco tour planner.

You can fly from Honolulu to San Francisco in 7.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Honolulu to San Francisco. In May, San Francisco is a bit cooler than Honolulu - with highs of 24°C and lows of 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
