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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach Park, &more) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, see the interesting displays at Bishop Museum, and steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial.

To see ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu trip planning website.

Manchester, UK to Honolulu is an approximately 22-hour flight. Traveling from Manchester to Honolulu, you'll gain 10 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Manchester in April, expect Honolulu to be much warmer, temps between 33°C and 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Waimea.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Volcano ©
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Explore Volcano's surroundings by going to Laupahoehoe Beach Park (in Laupahoehoe), Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Kalapana, Holei Sea Arch, &more) and Hilo (Alae Cemetery, Liliuokalani Gardens, &more). There's still lots to do: hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, contemplate the geological forces at Kīlauea, see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, and head outdoors with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook.

Heart of the Kona Coast

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
On the 17th (Mon), relax in the rural setting at Hala Tree, contemplate the long history of Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mokuaikaua Church, and finally get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.
