The sheltered bay of Oʻahu

Traditionally, Honolulu is the urban area on the southeastern shore of the island of Oʻahu, one of the most exotic and popular destinations in the U.S. state of Hawaii. An ideal trip to Honolulu includes its palaces, museums, and art galleries, but the excitement comes with the rustic surf towns boasting local craft beers and famous beaches. Honolulu is the heart of Oʻahu’s art and culture scene, as exciting overall as its most famous beach, Waikiki.
