From Waikiki by car:

Drive toward the mountain (we say, “mauka”) on any cross street to Ala Wai Blvd; it is one way to the left along side a canal (Ewa direction, i.e. towards downtown). Stay in the center lane until you pass McCully Street (the first bridge over the canal). The right two lanes turn onto Kalakaua Avenue (the second bridge over the canal), and continue toward the mountain. Kalakaua Avenue merges into Beretania Street; it is one way to the left. Go left. Continue toward town, staying in the right lane, until you pass the Honolulu Police Station on your left. The Health Department is across the street from the East lawn of the State Capitol Building, at the corner of Punchbowl Street and Beretania Street (it is a 4-story building called “Hale Kinau” at 1250 Punchbowl Street). The entry to the Parking lot is on Punchbowl Street so get in the right lane early to turn right on Punchbowl Street. Go past the building (there’s no left turn into the lot) to the break in the median, turn left. A 4-story building with green windows will be on your right. At the Governor’s Mansion, go left around the circle, then back to Punchbowl St., turn right at the stop sign, then right into the Health Dept. lot. The entry is marked with yellow poles. The building is also marked “State of Hawaii Health Department” on its street side. See map below.

From the Honolulu International Airport by car:

Take H-1 freeway Eastbound to Punchbowl Street (exit 21B). Stay in the right lane onto Punchbowl Street. After the traffic light at Vineyard St. continue past Queen’s Hospital Emergency (on your left). Look for the building on your right marked “State of Hawaii Health Department”. It is angled to the corner. Turn right into the Health Dept. parking lot; the entry is marked with yellow poles. See photo & map below. TIP: You cannot make a left turn into the Health Dept. from Punchbowl Street going toward the mountains. Just continue in the left lane on Punchbowl and turn left just past the pedestrian crossing. This takes you behind & into the Capitol underground. By the gate to the Governor’s Mansion, there is a circle where you can turn back to Punchbowl Street. Turn right at the stop sign, so you are going back toward the ocean. The Health Department will now be on your right across from The Medical Library.

Drive safe and buckle up; it’s the law in Hawaii.
