The capital of Hawaii, Honolulu is an urban area located on the southeastern shore of the island of Oahu. Honolulu means “sheltered bay” or “place of shelter.” The most famous area of Honolulu is Waikiki Beach, an area noted for its abundance of high-rises and resort hotels, views of Diamond Head and surfing. With the picture perfect cliffs of Ko’olau Mountains in the backdrop, and the Punchbowl volcano, Gay Honolulu makes it as one of the best places to get away on a vacation.
Between the Waikiki beaches, the Bishop Museum, the USS Arizona Memorial and rainforest hikes, you can find something for both the adventurous and laid-back gay traveler. The best places for food are Downtown where you can find authentic Hawaiian foods and luaus. But to truly experience Hawaii you have to throw away the pamphlets and head out on a natural hike through the tropical forests and find the local lagoons and waterfalls. Then again, spending a few days at a Hawaiian resort and doing absolutely nothing but enjoying the sights and sounds from your hotel room sounds pretty nice.
There are tons of gay beaches, surf clubs, and gay sporting events year-round to making it easy to plan a trip to the islands with our gay and lesbian travel guide. Things are laid-back in Hawaii in general, but the gay scene can be a little bit closeted. So we have the information here, take a look and be sure that you don’t miss out on a thing.
