Visiting Honolulu

(Honolulu, Hawaii - HI, USA)

Honolulu is a beautiful city standing on the island on Oahu, in Hawaii. A major center for both commerce and tourism, Honolulu is home to a true tropical paradise, offering magnificent stretches of sandy beaches, a scenic coastline and an endless selection of water sports.

Honolulu is home to everything you could possibly need for the perfect holiday, combining natural beauty with modern amenities, whilst retaining much of its native character. Highlights include many fine restaurants, large shopping centers, a vibrant nightlife and a number of monuments, such as the Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial.

Although it is fair to say that accommodation on Oahu is rarely what could be described as cheap, there are some affordable options within the Honolulu area, often being within reach of Waikiki. Honolulu vacation rentals are ideal for families and groups, and include oceanfront condos and apartments overlooking the Gold Coast.
