A Local's Guide to Honolulu Vacation Rentals

Truly a paradise resort, Honolulu in Hawaii is the gateway to the white sand beaches of the Hawaiian Islands. The capital of Hawaii, Honolulu on the Island of Oahu south shore is an incredible place for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. From dining, shopping and nightlife in the iconic Waikiki beach neighbourhood to exploring United States history by visiting sites of the Pearl Harbor, there is something for everyone.

This island resort is full of outdoor activities to enjoy in the glorious sunshine. One of the most popular spots to spend a day outside is Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Voted best beach in 2016, this incredible natural preserve has lots to see.

Protected as a conservation area in 1967, the underwater park of Hanauma Bay is a fantastic place for snorkeling. Visitors can take a snorkel tour of the area and learn about the incredible ecosystem and the marine life living within this preserve. Be aware it is closed on Tuesday so plan a trip around this day.

Another park to visit while in Honolulu is Diamond Head State Monument. This amazing hike takes walkers to the edge of a 300,000 year old crater which has an incredible view of the Pacific Ocean and Honolulu. Hikers are advised to bring water and suitable shoes as parts towards the end of this hike are steep.

There are still plenty of indoor activities if vacationers want to get out of the sun. Learn about Hawaii’s Royal past by taking a trip to the Iolani Palace, see some native animals at Honolulu Zoo and round off a day out by eating, shopping and relaxing in one of the many venues at Ala Moana Center – the largest open-air shopping center in the world.
