Top Attractions in Honolulu

1. Diamond Head

Diamond Head is a volcanic crater on the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu and known to Hawaiians as Lēʻahi. The Hawaiian name is most likely derived from lae (browridge, promontory) plus ʻahi (tuna) because the shape of the ridgeline resembles the shape of a tuna’s dorsal fin. British sailors navigating to the place, mistook calcite crystals for diamonds and, hence, it received its English name. It’s registered as a U.S. National Natural Monument.

It spreads over 475 acres (190 ha) (including the crater’s interior and outer slopes). Due to its high altitude, it was used as surveillance place by military in the early 1900s. It provides panoramic views of Waikīkī and the south shore of Oahu. The place features a lighthouse with the same name to help sailors navigate easily.

2. Hanauma Bay

For every nature lover, naturalist and adventure seeking tourist, Hanauma Bay is a must-see place located along the southeast coast of the Island of Oʻahu in the Hawaii Kai neighborhood of East Honolulu. What is Hanauma Bay? It’s a marine embayment formed within a tuff ring. A tuff ring is a volcanic eruption that gets triggered when hot magma comes in contact with the oceanic water.

This popular tourist destination is visited by over three million visitors per year. Hanauma has been a victim of over tourism. In 1956, dynamite was used to clear portions of the reef to make room for telephone cables linking Hawaii to the west coast of the US.

3. USS Arizona Memorial

The USS Arizona Memorial, at Pearl Harbor, commemorates the 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed on USS Arizona during the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The attack on Pearl Harbor and the island of Oahu led to the United States’ direct involvement in World War II. If you are visiting Honolulu with kids, you must visit this place to let them have an understanding of history related to the deadliest war. The place is visited by over two million people annually and is accessible only by boat. USS Arizona Memorial Visitor Center helps tourist with the historic information about the attack, shuttle boats to and from the memorial, and general services.
