"Sobre memorial for those who died during the Pearl Harbor attack. A good place for reflection and the memorial is right above the wreck."
Reasons to Recommend: A large seaport in Hawaii, Pearl Harbor is flanked by mountains on three sides and faces the sea towards another. The harbor is famous around the world due to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, a well-knowned surprise attack launched by the Japanese Navy on the US Pacific Fleet during the Second World War. Now the US government has designated the place as a base for education in patriotism. You may visit the Hall of Historical Exhibition, Memorial of Fleet, and Memorial of Aviation. WWII armaments align the embankments, where many valuable objects from the war are also on display.

"Dinosaur Bay is the favorite place for tourists to go scuba diving in Hawaii. The water is shallow, the waves are small, the fish are large, the scenery is beautiful, there are various natural coral reefs and tropical fish. Dinosaur Bay is a regional beach park and a state underwater park. Dinosaur Bay is currently one of the most popular attractions on Oahu Island in Hawaii, especially during the summer season, where parking is not available until 9am. Dinosaur Bay is named for looking like a sleeping dinosaur from a distance, a sea of life, one of Hawaii's best swimming and snorkeling sites."
Reasons to Recommend: Hanauma Bay is a natural bay at Diamond Head. Its shallow water and calm seas make it a perfect spot for snorkeling and swimming. One may watch a video footage upon arriving at Hanauma Bay, which introduces how the bay was formed and its ecological environment. After the film, one may head downhill and make for the locker room to change into swimming suits. The beach boasts delicate sand and clear water. One may either play on the beach or go swimming and snorkeling under water. The further into the sea, the more natural coral reeves and colorful species of fish there are.

"The plane just landed and saw the rainbow through the window! Honolulu is so beautiful! The chance to see a double rainbow every day is very high~ I fell in love with Hawaii in an instant! Honolulu has everything to eat, drink and have fun, the best is to relax, is a place to go and want to go countless times. I have no interest in the attractions. During the period in Honolulu, I went to shopping malls, beach walks, and various eating and buying. Recommend a few restaurants that I think are good~ Niujiao Japanese BBQ specialty store in Japan I love to eat its BBQ in Japan! It saved my Asian stomach by eating in Hawaii! Happy hour is very affordable, but we chose self-help, so it is good! Weekend night 45 dollars, still very good value! Beef and pork are delicious! Dessert is not inferior! Eggs'n Things from Hawaii to Japan have to try the net muffins. I personally feel so normal, but my husband loves to eat, he ate for two days... It seems that the dessert is something the man likes to have nothing to do with women... Honolulu has many stores, I think the environment of Waikiki is too normal. The drinks are not good, do not recommend! Directly ask for ice water! Red Lobster is also a net red shop, and you go to eat without waiting. The steak is not bad, but the lobster is difficult to say... I think the lobster pizza is very delicious, Husband complains that it is made of side materials... The Cheesecake Factory cake is not bad, it is more heavy. Other food is very ordinary, the environment is very general, it is too bad smell... Blue Water eats the most pleasant surprise! Just in the Hilton Resort! The environment is very general, the big brand, the taste is amazing~ Loco moco and combo牛排 and shrimp are super recommended! Tips: We basically pay cash, but the tip is difficult to make! Recommended card..."
Reasons to Recommend: The Ala Moana Beach Park is at once one of the most popular beaches on Oahu’s South Shore, and one of the least noticeably crowded. Removed from the shoulder to shoulder crunch found at some of the spots directly along Waikiki Beach, Ala Moana is still bustling with activity but there is much more beach to space it out. The waters here are perfectly tranquil thanks to an offshore reef buffeting the waves. Visitors will find plenty of sun and sand to enjoy, in addition to workout facilities, a snack shop, and an expansive open park that includes the scenic Magic Island. The similarly named Ala Moana Mall is just across the street from this location, and is by far the best shopping opportunity in the state. If you are looking for a calm, family friendly beach look no further than Ala Moana Beach. It’s about a fifteen minute walk west from the areas centrally packed hotels, and is a welcome site for those who have spent the majority of their vacation up to that point only in crowded Waikiki Beach.

"Ala Wai Boat Harbor, Ala Wai Boat Harbor, referred to as Ala Wai Harbor, Ala Wai Harbor. Located at the southern tip of Oahu, Hawaii, between Magic Island and Kahanamoku Beach. Magic Island and Kahanamoku Beach are both scenic hotspots, but without the contrast of sails and waters of Port Alawi, they would appear monotonous. In the morning or in the evening, walking or sitting on the waterside of Alawi Port will not only enjoy the facial features, but also the soul. You can sit here for two hours, motionless, remembering nothing, just immersed in the water scenery."
Reasons to Recommend: The Ala Wai Yacht Harbor is one of the most bustling private harbors in Honolulu. The area is surrounded with restaurants and hotels that strive to take up their place along the water so to share in some of the scenic Pacific Views. There are also a few surf breaks to be enjoyed in this area, with Kaisers being the most popular. As for the boats, there are hundreds of them here, many of which serve as both home and recreational vehicle to some of Oahu's more ocean-bound residents. Whether you are heading over to this area to enjoy some sailing or boating, want to check out the surrounding attractions, or are simply passing through, the Ala Wai Harbor is a great location that brings all sorts.

"For two days, Magic Island watched the sunset, probably really love it haha~ I wanted to walk to Waikiki, and it was a ghost to come here again. Located in Ala Moana Beach Park, staying in Waikiki can walk over, not far from the Ala Moana shopping center, buying the rhythm!"
Reasons to Recommend: Enchantment Island is a beautiful and relaxed park on a sticking little Peninsula isolating the Ala Wai Harbor from Ala Moana Beach. It's an extraordinary place for an outing and is in a standout amongst the most visitor amicable areas on Oahu. Truth be told, visitor or not, anybody would rapidly see the overabundance of attractions encompassing Magic Island. First of all, the before specified Ala Wai Harbor is a well known spot to figure out how to scuba jump or join an angling contract.

"The fountain cave is also a very suitable place to visit, the natural formation of the cave contents, after the pressure of the sea formed the characteristics of the eruption, the fountain cave is also a very worth to appreciate the view, from time to time an eruption moment."
Reasons to Recommend: Halona Blowhole is one of eastern Oahu's most visited regular attractions. Discovered just before Sandy Beach Park, this "blowhole" is really the consequence of tidal powers dissolving the coral drift so as to make a give in where suction of ebbing waves occasionally sends a gush of water high into the air. Regardless of whether you are hovering around the Oahu on a visit, or are going to Sandy's or Makapuu Beach, take a couple of minutes to look at the show and the view from delightful Halona Blowhole.

"It belongs to a beach park on the side of Waikiki and is also on the island of Oahu. The beach and beach park area is relatively large, the tourists are more, but it is still fun, sunning or water sports are relatively more items."
Reasons to Recommend: Kuhio Beach Park is essentially Waikiki, and like Waikiki, this region is swarmed and clamoring with traveler and business action. On any given day it's ordinary to see supported surfing rivalries, or bathing suit photograph shoots, yet for the individual guest, there are many better shorelines to be appreciated around Waikiki. For instance, on the off chance that you are sufficiently fortunate to remain at a shoreline front lodging you will discover the water and sands there especially less swarmed and likely much more clean. Another choice is close-by Ala Moana Beach, which might be the shoreline inside reasonable distance from Waikiki. In any case, Kuhio Beach Park has a lot of Hawaii's beautiful excellence, and it is an intriguing spot to individuals watch or figure out how to surf. Simply ensure it's by all account not the only shoreline you visit while in Hawaii, since it will positively abandon you with a twisted impression of this delightful chain of islands.

"Honolulu Seaport is quite a large space. The seaport retains many natural features. It is also a very important civilian seaport in Hawaii. It has a long coastline and is also a deep-water port, which can often be seen. Very big facilities."
Reasons to Recommend: Honolulu Harbor is Oahu's most bustling seaport, frequently hosting mammoth cruise liners and sailboats alike. Located in Mamala Bay, the harbor is overshadowed by the lighted clock and upper floors of Aloha Tower, which has been greeting vessels upon arrival to the Harbor since 1926. In 1850 King Kamehameha declared Oahu the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii, paving the way for this harbor to become the most highly trafficked one on the islands. The area surrounding the harbor is the most densely populated commercial area on Oahu, and home to her tallest skyscrapers. The Hawaii Maritime Center is found near Aloha Tower, and there are also several quality restaurants to be enjoyed along the waters edge. Honolulu Harbor, like New York Harbor, was the first introduction to America that immigrants from the east experienced. It is certainly a historic and attraction rich area as it continues to welcome ocean born visitors to this day.
