Love Waikiki Beach. We stay a block away from the beach and love it. I love swimming here its great to be able to relax and not have to be hit with big waves. I love to watch the surfers, boogie boarders and everyone enjoying the water. My teenage sons love boogie boarding here and jumping off the pier. Sitting... More

We stayed at a hotel right on the beach. We swan everyday! The water was lovely. Easiest to enter and leave near the Royal Hawaiian hotel. A few other places it has a bit of a ridge to climb which can be tricky if the surf is up, Gorgeous clear water and shallow for a long while. Great and ageism... More

The beach is very close to many hotels and busy streets. Maintenence dies is best to keep it clean. Good option if you do not have a rental car. Some shade trees along streets. Several dirty bathrooms. Many homeless folks. Expensive restaurants. Many vendors renting kayaks, SUP's, boards etc. Many pigeons. Don't leave crumbs out they will stalk you. No... More

Everyone should visit this beach at least once in their life. It's very beautiful, busy at times, but nice. My wow factor was the first night looking out at the ocean. It was so dark and I realized I was on an island in the middle of the Pacific... safe, of coarse, in the comfort of my ocean view room.... More

I've been to Waikiki Beach many times. This last time the beach was way over crowded. If you wanted to either take surfing lessons or paddle board, you had to do it early in the morning when fewer people were in the water. I was paddle boarding and I don't know how many times almost got hit by surfers or... More

Gorgeous area and beach that is breath taking! Try not to concern yourself with too much "touristy" stuff, instead relax, renew, and just bask in the beauty that is this beautiful beach!! :)

Stayed on Waikiki beach for a week in late July. The beachwalk is exceptional. Stone pavers, surfing statues and high end shops adorn the length of the famous stretch of beach. With Diamond Head as the backdrop, shade trees and pavilions line the beach. The sand quality is average and it's soft...not great for walking on the beach itself...but walking... More
