The city of Honolulu is renowned for its white sandy beaches, deep blue water, the historical importance during the WWII and recently also as the birthplace of Barack Obama. Waikiki Beach gets crowded during the day, so head to Ala Moana Park where you can find various great beaches for relaxation. History buffs appreciate many war memorials.
