Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: trek along Diamond Head State Monument, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, see the interesting displays at Bishop Museum, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
