Honolulu is on Oahu, the third largest and most populous island in the Hawaiian chain. More than 70 percent of the population makes this their home. Always tolerant of diverse lifestyles, the island remains a popular destination for gay travelers and has many welcoming guesthouses, shops, restaurants, and bars.

The surfing is good at Makapuu and Sandy Beach, along with Waimea, Sunset and Pipeline beaches in the winter. If you prefer, you can snorkel among dolphins and colorful tropical fish in Hanauma Bay.

The gayest Oahu beach is Queen's Surf Beach, at the Diamond Head end of Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki. A secluded area at the base of the lighthouse, off Diamond Head Road, is another favorite spot.

Aloha Guest House (84-4780 Mamalahoa Hwy, Captain Cook; 808-328-8955) lovely orchards, fragrant flowers, spectacular views.

Restaurants
Fresh fruit, pineapple, papaya, mango, guava, and coconut are a staple here, and these flavors are to be found in every type of dish.
