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.

Waikiki Beach reviews
This is a very beautiful beach that provides a great place to swim, or just absorb some rays. Very calm on the days that we visited in November. more »
The sand and ocean were beautiful. Very colorful place with lots of people and music. Family friendly and it is fun to watch the surfers. Get there early to find a good spot. more »
