Visitors can rent cycles and take the 5-mile bicycle tour which runs downhill through the Puu Ohia Rainforest. Hikers can explore dormant volcanoes, discover lava beds and see steam vents and craters. Helicopter tours are a popular way to see the high mountain peaks covered in lush rainforest.

Pearl Harbor is a must-do for visitors from their Waikiki holiday rental. The attraction includes a tour of the USS Arizona Memorial to the lives lost in 1941 when the U.S. Pacific Fleet was bombed. There is also the Punchbowl National Cemetery and an informative Visitor Centre. The Iolani Palace is well worth a visit as it is the only royal palace standing on American soil.
