Best Things To Do in Honolulu

The island of Oahu has a great mix of activities, particularly in Honolulu. How we rank Things to Do.

1. Waikiki Beach

Nineteenth-century Hawaiian royalty used to come to the Honolulu neighborhood of Waikiki to relax and surf, just as scores of tourists do today.

2. Pearl Harbor and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial

The U.S.S. Arizona Memorial is the final resting place of 1,102 sailors killed during the Pearl Harbor attack.

3. Sunset Beach

Like its southern neighbor, Waimea, Sunset Beach’s wintertime waves are too intense for amateur surfers. But this is a great place to go if you want to be a spectator.

4. Surfing

It’s no secret: Oahu is home to some of the world’s best-surfing spots.

5. National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific

In ancient Hawaiian times, the Punchbowl Crater was used for human sacrifices.
