Step out of Honolulu to go to Kailua and see Kailua Beach Park, which is approximately 32 minutes away. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, enjoy the sand and surf at Ala Moana Beach Park, and contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial.
