1. Hilton Hawaiian Village
The Hilton Hawaiian Village offers great views and facilities and is our favourite place to stay. It is close to the beach and shopping centres.
2. The shops and restaurants in and around the Hilton Hawaiian Villag
With so many restaurants to choose from in Waikiki some of my favourites are:
- The Cheesecake Factory – Gluten Free Options
- Vantage Coffee – Gluten Free Options
- Jimmy Buffet
- Honolulu Cookie Company
- Tropics Bar (Hilton Hawaiian Village) – one of my favourite places to drink cocktails and watch a sunset
- Victoria’s Secret
- Tiffany & Co
- Boutique Shops
3. Pearl Harbor
A trip to Hawaii would be incomplete without a visit to this amazing place, Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor is a serene place with a lot of history.
4. Sunset Dinner Cruise
The sunset dinner cruise I travelled on was the ‘Star of Honolulu’. The cruise was at sunset and was a lot of fun with plenty of food and dancing by staff and guests. The view of Waikiki at sunset was breathtaking.
5. Diamond Head
A visit to Hawaii is not complete without a hike to Diamond Head. Check out my 5 Reasons to Hike Diamond Head State Monument, Hawaii.
The sky is the perfect place to visit where you can take aerial shots of Honolulu and experience the exhilaration of a helicopter ride with no doors.
