While many choose to simply hang out on the beaches of Waikiki, there is much more to see on this southern side of Oahu!
Take in some history and visit the only royal palace in the U.S, Iolani Palace, which has been restored to its former glory in the days of Hawaii’s monarchy!
Afterwards, take a drive south, heading towards Diamond Head and around to Kahala. As you drive through this affluent neighborhood, you will see some very impressive homes on the hillsides overlooking the ocean.
Further up is Hawaii Kai and Maunalua Bay Beach Park overlooking Koko Head Crater. Keep heading towards the southeastern point of Oahu, stopping for a snorkel at beautiful Hanauma Bay and then out to Makapu‘u Lighthouse for a fantastic view and some great photos!
Returning back into Honolulu, there are several great dining options. Then prepare yourself for an awesome adventure with Xtreme Parasail. Choose from Jet Skis, Parasailing, or a Pirate Ship Cruise. It’s a great way to end the day before catching the sunset and a delicious dinner at one of the many fine restaurants of Waikiki!.
