Take a break from Honolulu with a short trip to Lanikai Beach in Kailua, about 34 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
