Welecome to Honolulu

Welecome to Honolulu


For a millennia, people have been inexorably drawn to Hawaii. The early Polynesians paddled their outrigger canoes from Tahiti and the Marquessas across 2000 miles of open ocean to reach the Hawaiian Islands.

Today, the most visited island is Oahu, enticing 5 million travelers per year to its capital, the cosmopolitan city of Honolulu, the most remote large city in the world. Honolulu’s main attraction is the two mile stretch on the southernmost edge of the island: Waikiki. This tourist mecca of Oahu is open 24 hours, a Las Vegas on the beach, without the gambling. With 5 star restaurants and high-rise resort hotels, world-class shopping and entertainment, there is also enough culture, history, and balmy, palm-lined beaches to satisfy the most demanding visitors.

But within an hour’s drive of tourist and highway congestion, there are rain forests and waterfalls, emerald mountains, exotic plants of impossible size, tall cliffs, deep canyons, giant waves lapping near deserted beaches, as well as the intoxicating scent of plumeria, white ginger and orchids in an artist’s palette of colors.

A trip to Honolulu can be as relaxing or as exciting as you choose. From watching the gentle waves of Waikiki Beach from your hotel balcony to snorkeling with sea turtles in Hanauma Bay or body surfing the famous waves on the North Shore, Honolulu is a great escape to a city that has been called the most beautiful coastal capital in the world.
