Thinking of a long relaxing holiday by the beach - think Honolulu vacation! Situated on the Oahu Island, it is not just the capital of Hawaii but is also a complete tropical paradise. The name Honolulu in Hawaiian stands for "sheltered Bay" and it truly is an amazing shelter for those who want to run away from the hustle-bustle and competitive environment of the modern world.
Honolulu is accessible by air and sea and is a pleasant maze of streets kissing enchanting shorelines, ridges, and valleys. Within the island, you can travel by bus, taxi, boat or even rail. A Honolulu vacation is not just about white sandy beaches and sunbathing; it is also about visiting the Military memorials that will take you back to the Pearl Harbor attack, museums, palace, and nature reserves. A year round tropical weather ensures that Honolulu is pleasant for adventure seekers and fitness freaks. From watching the Honolulu Marathon to ice skating, treasure hunt, surfing, horseback riding, and hiking, there is plenty of adventure in every nook and corner.
A must visit place is the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, which is a natural bay formed from the crater of an extinct volcano and is home to colorful schools of fish and coral reefs. To get a closer view, you can even scuba dive or snorkel in the waters of the crater.
One of the exotic experiences of any Honolulu vacation is the sea food and the Hawaiian specials. Simply relishing, the best way to enjoy is by trying out kalua pig and Lau Lau with pipikaula, lomi salmon and poi as side dishes. Top cuisines are ahi tartare, Tiger prawns, mahimahi, and opakapaka. You can have your fish steamed, grilled, or blackened with vinegar or dark chili sauce. A beautiful destination, Honolulu will mesmerize you with an innocent charm!
