Camping near Honolulu guide


With the big city juxtaposed against the blue water and sandy beaches, camping at Honolulu is the ideal combination of fun and relaxation. Enjoy some coastal camping on Sand Island, located on the Honolulu Harbor. There are beaches, hiking trails, snorkeling, and even a small community on the island itself with watersport rentals and eateries. After getting your fill of lazing on the beach and swimming, head across the channel to Honolulu proper where you can find the Polynesian Cultural Center, the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, the Battleship Missouri Memorial, and downtown shopping. Head a little further inland to the Honolulu Watershed Forest Reserve. Both the Lulumahu Falls and Monoa Falls are stunning hikes. For great views, hike up to the Nu'uanu Pali Lookout. If hiking is your thing, take the Makapu'u Point Lighthouse Trail. Stop along the way at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and the Sea Life Park. Whether you want to explore nature or combine camping with some city fun, Honolulu has it.
