In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You've now added Waimea Valley to your itinerary. Get outdoors at Waikiki Beach and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Visit Kailua Beach Park and Sunset Beach Park for some beach relaxation. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa), Banzai Pipeline (in Pupukea) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). There's much more to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, discover the deep blue sea with Honu Hawaiian Diving, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and make a trip to Makapu'u Point.

To find more things to do, maps, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary website .

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. Traveling from New York City in June, things will get somewhat warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 86°F and lows about 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Kailua-Kona.

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.
Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Fri): get close to the beloved marine mammals with Big Island Divers, contemplate the long history of Kealakekua Bay, and then kick back and relax at Honaunau Bay. Keep things going the next day: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mokuaikaua Church, take in the waterfront at Kailua Pier, then see some colorful creatures with Kona Diving Company, and finally kick back and relax at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

To see other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Kailua-Kona day trip app .

You can fly from Honolulu to Kailua-Kona in 4 hours. Expect a daytime high around 86°F in July, and nighttime lows around 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
