Destination Guide - Honolulu
Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii, is situated on the island of Oahu. Its famous Waikiki Beach is nature’s gift to hedonism, enticing visitors to its shores, bars and shops all year around. It’s not just a tropical party getaway though – it’s also rich in history. It was the location that King Kamehameha ruled from in the late 1700s and is also home to the Arizona Memorial for the attacks on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Today, it’s perfect location to snooze the day away on the beach or learn to surf Waikiki’s phenomenal waves. In the evening, Honolulu is alive with people dining al fresco and zealous revellers dancing the night away.
