What to Do in Honolulu

Surfing

Easily the most iconic activity to do when visiting Hawaii, surfing is very popular on the island of Oahu. Professional surfers are known to frequent the island’s best spots during surfing’s peak season in Winter. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a professional to enjoy this activity. There are plenty of beaches that offer relaxing surfing experiences. There are also plenty of classes specifically designed to teach tourists how to surf.

Honolulu Museum of Art

Honolulu Museum of Art has one of the largest collections of Asian and Pan-Pacific art in America. Be entranced by some of the greatest art pieces you’ll ever see. This museum offers more than just a rich collection of art and history, however. Honolulu Museum of Art also offers its visitors an educational experience through its art class which focuses on preserving the cultural significance of art in Hawaii.

Makapuu Lighthouse Trail

Hike alongside Oahu’s coastline and take in the majestic beauty Hawaii has to offer you. The vast ocean is on one side of you, and the exciting rocky terrain of Oahu is on the other. Snap a picture of either the sunset, sunrise, or both. This trail is especially popular during the months from December to April where visitors just might see a whale or two.

What to See in Honolulu
