This is the best beach along Waikiki. You can hire Umbrella and lounges for $20/hr ($25/2 hrs). The sea bottom is cleaner (less rocks) than other parts along Waikiki and its not as busy as other parts. The water is calmer too for young children.

We had a great time here! We rented chairs and umbrella! This is some of the best beach that we discovered in Hawaii!! Took surfing lessons here and had a blast!

Wear water shoes! Once past the beach, there are lots of rocks in the water. The water is fairly calm, and the beach isn't as crowded as other Waikiki locations. The adjacent Army Museum is also interesting.

Check this beach out! We liked it better than Waikiki ! Lots of grass area for sitting. Lots of shade available and some picnic tables and grills. Worth the short walk!

good area of grass if you get tired of the sand! It has an army museum there, which is closed on Sunday and Monday.

Picnic tables available under the big trees! Watch out for all the birds there and for flying "objects". Birds - especially pigeons - seem to be a problem in Honolulu. They are everywhere but Fort DeRussy Beach Park is great - even with birds.

A very lush getaway in Waikiki for a peaceful stroll or sit down. Nature abounds and great for pictures, exercise and 'reflecting without a lot of hustle and bustle, but still in Waikiki with a short walk to the beach, hotels, restaurants, and shopping. Love it when there's a light rain too.
