Soak up Hawaii’s island charm while relaxing on the sandy shores of Waikiki Beach. Located on the south shore of Honolulu, the beach borders the well-known neighborhood of Waikiki, once a playground for Hawaiian royalty. Known for its pristine white sand, bathtub temperatures, and spectacular views of the Diamond Head tuff cone, the beach serves as a popular place for watersports and sunbathing year-round. Try your hand at riding the waves with a surf lesson, or take a stroll along the boardwalk, where you will find a variety of oceanside dining options and street vendors.

  • The beach is beautiful and the water is warm. Great place to get a tan. Royal Hawaiian rents chairs to its patrons or you can bring your own chairs and umbrella. Great place to spend the whole day.

  • Great place with great weather, as always
  • Pretty much crowded place. The sky is blue. The ocean is warm. What else do you need when you want to escape your frosty and snowy place?
