About Honolulu

Honolulu translates to “sheltered harbor” or “calm port” and has been the capital of the Hawaiian islands since 1845. During the reign of King Kamehameha III, the permanent capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom was moved from Maui to Oahu, with his successors building up what is now modern-day Honolulu. Honolulu was ranked as the 29th city in worldwide living quality, and the 2nd safest city in the United States. As a main hub for international entrance into the United States, Honolulu and the island of Oahu have grown to have a booming economy based mainly around tourism activities. With picturesque weather year- round, Honolulu is a fantastic place to relax and create new adventures.

Fun Facts

• Oahu is 44 miles long, 30 miles wide, 112 miles around and is the third-largest island in the Hawaiian chain of 132 islets. • Paradise Cove Luau, the largest luau in the State of Hawaii, cooks 127.5 tons of kalua pig each year for it’s nightly luaus. • Hawaii is the only State in the United States that continually grows larger. This is due to volcanic activity that flows into the ocean and cools and forms new land. • Iolani Palace, located in downtown Honolulu, is the only Royal Palace in the United States.

• Oahu is home to the world’s largest wind generator. The windmill is located on the top of a 20 story tower. • Waikiki attracts 72,000 visitors each day. That is 44 percent of all visitors on all of the islands. • “Aloha” is a greeting or parting phrase used in Hawaii. • The “Shaka” sign, sometimes known as “hang loose”, is a gesture of friendly intent often associated with Hawaii and surf culture.

For those looking to get away from the large crowds, Kailua, Lanikai, and Waimanalo beaches are incredible options as well. Each one has its own scenic view, and plenty of different activities like beach walks, surfing, and kayaking, so consult staff at the local Cartier boutiques for the beach best fit for you.
