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.
Relax by the water at Lanikai Beach and Banzai Pipeline. Explore hidden gems such as Kailua Beach Park and Waimea Valley. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Kapiolani Regional Park, cruise along Makapu'u Point, examine the collection at Bishop Museum, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu online trip itinerary builder.

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Traveling from Toronto to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Toronto in September, things will get a bit warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 36°C and lows about 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to travel to Kapaa.

Venture out of the city with trips to Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei), Princeville Ranch (in Princeville) and Polihale State Park (in Waimea). There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with Catamaran Kahanu, take in the dramatic scenery at Opaekaa Falls, kick back and relax at Shipwreck Beach, and immerse yourself in nature at Hāʻena State Park.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Take a break from the city and head to Napili Beach and Goofy Foot Surf School, Inc. Lahaina United Methodist Church and Baldwin Home Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Hale Ho'ike'ike at the Bailey House (in Wailuku), Kihei (Maui Waveriders, Hawaiian Paddle Sports, &more) and Wai'anapanapa State Park (in Hana). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Wailea Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ho'okipa Beach Park, see Maui Surfer Girls, and let the river carry you with Hawaii Ocean Rafting.

Kohala Coast

Kohala Coast ©
Dominated by the large volcano that looms in its background, Kohala Coast offers a quieter and less tourist-ridden alternative to the busier regions of Hawaii.
Relax by the water at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Waialea Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kohala Divers and Puukohola Heiau. There's much more to do: discover the deep blue sea with Ocean Sports Snorkel Adventure, kick back and relax at Anaehoomalu, tour the pleasant surroundings at Puukohola National Historic Park, and look for all kinds of wild species at Blue Wilderness Dive Adventures.

Captain Cook

Captain Cook ©
A small town with big ocean views, Captain Cook lies on top of an ancient fault line that was responsible for creating the nearby Kealakekua Bay thousands of years ago.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Honaunau Bay and Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay). Popular historic sites such as Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Kealakekua Bay are in your itinerary. Step out of Captain Cook with an excursion to Sunlight on Water in Kailua-Kona--about 32 minutes away. The adventure continues: discover the deep blue sea with Kona Diving Company, look for all kinds of wild species at Kona Honu Divers, get interesting insight from Sandwich Isle Divers, and find your balance on the water with HYPR Nalu.

Volcano

Volcano ©
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Punalu‘U Beach and Kīlauea. Liliuokalani Gardens and Pu'u Loa Petroglyphs are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Volcano: Laupahoehoe Beach Park (in Laupahoehoe) and Hilo (Akaka Falls State Park, Hilo Ocean Adventures, &more). And it doesn't end there: hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, stroll through Pu'u Huluhulu trail, and take in the exciting artwork at Volcano Art Center Gallery.

To find photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Volcano trip planner.
