Honolulu is the capital of the U.S. state of Hawaii on the south coast of the island of Oahu. The Honolulu International Airport ( IATA : HNL ) is located 14 miles west of Waikiki Beach and 6 miles west of Honolulu city center. The airport is about 20-30 minutes drive from Waikiki. Coming from Waikiki continue to the end of Kalakaua Avenue and turn just before the Honolulu Zoo onto Kapahulu Avenue to the left. The Kapahulu Avenue, follow it to the end where it merges into the H-1 freeway. You drive on the H-1 westbound and follow signs to the airport. There are direct flights to Europe due to its distance not, you have to change on the U.S. mainland. The total flight time is approximately 18 hours.
In Hawaii, we recommend you – like everywhere in the U.S. – to rent a car. The car is in the United States (except a few exceptions) the only reasonable way of moving. By car to get anywhere in OAHU, Honolulu and parking are available. The sights are ideal by car: Diamond Head, the beaches (not Waikiki Beach guide, since it is a waste), but a few minutes outside, as one finds that, in winter the North SAhore with the giant waves, which is not just by public transport.
