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 added Kapiolani Regional Park, Ala Moana Beach Park, Lanikai Beach, and other attractions to your itinerary. Get in touch with nature at Scuba & Snorkeling and Nature & Wildlife Tours. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Kaka'ako. There's much more to do: stroll through Waikiki Beach, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, get engrossed in the history at Queen Emma Summer Palace, and take some stellar pictures from Puu Ualakaa State Park.

To see more things to do, reviews, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip itinerary builder website .

Auckland, New Zealand to Honolulu is an approximately 12-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 22 hours traveling from Auckland to Honolulu. Traveling from Auckland in June, you will find days in Honolulu are much warmer (35°C), and nights are a bit warmer (27°C). Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) early enough to travel to Kihei.

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Kamaole Beach Park II and Makena Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Kamaole Beach Park III and Kayaking & Canoeing. There's still lots to do: find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery, stroll through Ho'okipa Beach Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Big Beach.

To find where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, read our Kihei trip itinerary tool .

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Kihei takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and taxi; or do a combination of flight and car. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in June, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
