    Hey guys what's up? I'm visiting Honolulu and oahu at the end of August with some straight and gay friends. Does anybody have ideas for things to do? We're open to everything from touristy things to bars to hiking to snorkeling and nude beaches. How are the gay things for tourists? Hopefully, my friends and I will be able to pick up some guys (and girls). Any recommendations?

    I've never been; but the first thing I'd do is get an aerial tour of the area. The tour pilot can tell you what things are, then you can google them and go there.

    Go snorkling at Shark Cove (a lot less crowded than Hananuma Bay) and plenty of fishes.

    Get some foods and have a picnic at Lanakai beach - my favorite beach in Oahu - absolutely stunning!! Kailua beach is right next to it and quite beautiful as well.

    Go swim with those giant turtles at Turtle beach

    Makapuu Lighthouse Trail - amazing hike. This is where you can go "off" trail and hike down to the most beautiful oceanside tidepools. You've seen this famous old lighthouse on episodes of Magnum, P.I. and Hawaii Five-O.

    Take a hike to Manoa Falls - the tropical forest, so green and beautiful

    Waimea Botanical Garden on the north shore is also a beautiful place. It's a huge place, so you can spend half of a day there at least.

    Last but not least, be sure to go to Ward Warehouse for great shopping and dining. One of my most favourite casual eateries there is Kaka'ako Kitchen - you can have a delicious meal for under $10 and it's local style plate lunch - - if you don't know what that means you will when you get there.

    Hula's is the biggest gay scene bar. however dont expect much. its not as big compared to west coast or east coast bars. or chicago.

    Diamond head crater hike

    Diamond head lighthouse beach is very secluded and sort of gay and nude.

    queen kapiolani park and beach is "gay" and can be cruisy.

    there may be some music club mixed scene in downtown honolulu

    rent a car and drive around the island. many great beaches to see some for surfing and some for swimming.

    Valley of the Temples is very beautiful with a japanese style temple replica of a 900yo temple in japan.

    i wish i were going back there.

    While you can sneak nude at the Diamond Head beach, I have seen cops dressed in street clothes bust a few people. (Although they're quite obvious; they usually travel in pairs and are wearing polos and shorts while everybody else is shirtless/in bathing suits.)

    At Diamond Head it can feel sort of like you're in a bad porn, because there are trails directly above the beach and guys walk around them and "spy" on the hotties in speedos below. Most of the time it's not so great, but I have found a couple of six-packs up there and we played together.

    If you drive north up to Dilingham Air Field, there's a beach called "Polo Beach" where you can go nude. Note that it's not official, but it's the best place to be nude on the island. Plug the coordinates into Google Maps:

    Park on the side of the street here: 21.576851,-158.165505 (68 Farrington Highway, Waianae, Hawaii, United States)

    Walk down this trail (it says "public beach access"): 21.577759,-158.165502 (Be careful, it can be muddy and slippery.)

    Drop your towel and strip down: 21.580373,-158.164212

    If you want some play, there is usually a creepy old guy here willing to suck you off: 21.580443,-158.16337 (or if you have a bf along, you can go hide in the bushes and have some fun outdoors)

    Remember, this isn't officially nude but I have been there on Saturdays when there are a good 15-20 people out there (straights and gays) in the nude.

    Basically, the way I understand it, unless somebody makes a complaint the police look the other way.

    If you rent a car drive around the Island its incredible. North shore is cool has big surf & big turtles, Dole plantation, if you like vegetation and Pineapples, Obviously Pearl harbor.
