This is the best family beach near Waikiki but sshh, don't tell anybody. We always go there to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.

The Kaimana Beach area runs on from Waikiki Beach and is a very lively and exciting area, both day and night. The big beach hotels like the Outrigger, Halekulani and Sheriton Waikiki are close by and the night life with shops and shows is well worth a visit. The beach is good for swimming with a gentle slope. Surf boards... More

Come early for parking, bring a tent or umbrella to stay for a while. good for families with athletes to swim, then run the park, while the babysitter watches the kids in the water. Lifeguarded too.

This is one of the most popular spots for locals to catch some rays and to swim in the ocean. The water is clean and the beach not busy with commercial activities. There are a lot of beautiful people who hang out here and the people are friendly. The Hau Tree Lanai at the New Otani Hotel that is adjacent... More

This is a wonderful beach for all ages. Unless there is a big southerly swell, the water is calm and the sea floor slopes gently enough that even toddlers can enjoy the water. The reef is not far from shore so anyone competent at snorkeling can enjoy the fish in an easily accessible, safe place.

I love coming here, because the water is very calm and always warm. There is usually a lot of people on weekends, so finding parking can take some time. There are restrooms and showers near the beach. It is also a common place for BBQs and family parties, so sometimes the green area can be crowded, it is also near... More

This is a great beach if you want Waikiki but not with a lot of tourists. This beach is frequented more my locals. There is a reef so it is protected from big waves. You can swim, snorkel or even surf without a ton of tourists. There is a shower and you can go inside the hotel to use the... More

Nice beach not as crowded as Waikiki but still quiet full, with hire facilities for boards, boats, bikes and water equipment nearby. Went kayaking and enjoyed. Some low grade eateries nearby.

This is another great beach to visit. All the rest rooms on the public beachs are not very clean, but still available when needed. We went on a Wednesday and there were only 8 of us on the Beach - nice place to relax and soak up the sun.
