The place is also lined with shops and restaurants adjacent to Kalakaua Avenue. This beach is easy to access and t’s beautiful, and clean. A visit to this beach leaves tourists gushing over it.

Lanikai Beach:

Located in the downtown of Honolulu, there are two of the island's most popular beaches, Kailua and Lanikai Beach. Lanikai Beach is tranquil and offers calm waters and a mile-long stretch of white sand. It is a family-friendly beach and a haven for kayaking and surfing.

Diamond Head State Monument:

This unique monument was created over 300,000 years ago during a volcanic eruption that poured out ash into the air. That ash then settled over thousands of years, and today, it is Diamond Head State Monument's ridgeline, one of the most recognizable features of Oahu's skyline, not to mention home to one of the island's most scenic hiking trails. Though the 760-foot hike up this tuff cone is somewhat challenging if you're out of shape, travelers say you'll be rewarded with a surreal view of Waikiki Beach and the Pacific Ocean once you reach the summit.

Honolulu Museum of Art:

The Spalding House features an art collection that covers across seas, styles, and centuries. For the price of one museum, you can now explore two within the same day. However, keep in mind that they’re two miles away from each other.

Make sure you have proper footwear, insect repellant, drinking water, and the stamina to hike about one and a half kilometers on a well-worn path. The rainforest scenery is with enormous prehistoric ferns and the snaking roots of banyan trees. It's no wonder why Steven Spielberg filmed scenes from "Jurassic Park" here. You probably won't see any dinosaurs, but be prepared: The path to the falls can be pretty slippery with mud, so wear sturdy hiking shoes that you don't mind getting dirty.
