Scenic but crowded

Very picturesque icon of Honolulu. Also crowded from time to time. Yabba dabba do 100 characters for you.

Not much beach, so many people, so touristy, but I loved it (and I hate all things tourist, including being one)! Great atmosphere. Gentle waves. Amazing views.

We had a wonderful time at Waikiki Beach with friends and meeting new people and spending time just hanging in the surf. One Day the girls rented paddles boards and the other one went body surfing. We all had fun and want to return and do it again next summer.

Not the best in Hawaii but most famous beach in the city center. A must for tourist. Like the nice sunshine and so much on going. But the beach is not too clean due to the volume of visitors.

Just a beautiful beach. Beautiful views of Diamondhead, sparkling clear water, blue skies with puffy clouds. Colorful boats on the beach. Bathing beauties, musclemen. A feast for the eyes

One side is hotels, restaurants and shopping while the other side is the beach! What more can you ask for?
