Honolulu, Oahu

— 5 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, appreciate the views at Nu’uanu Pali, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

For ratings, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our Honolulu online sightseeing planner.

Montreal, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 15-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Montreal to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Montreal in April, expect Honolulu to be much warmer, temps between 33°C and 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Hanalei.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
