This is a beautiful, picturesque beach. Every turn is a photo opportunity. The backdrop of the mountain and the palm trees are just gorgeous. The only downfall is that the covered picnic area is largely utilized by homeless people.

What can I say? This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen and been in. I love that you can walk along the beach and see all the other resorts....especially at night.

This is a premier beach destination, it is beautiful and has atmosphere to boot. It was a little different to what I expected but the surrounding businesses and hotels have fully cashed in on the tourist dollar.

This is such a beautiful place to spend time. They have swimming pools built at the beach, so you don't have to fight with the big waves.

If you are visiting Honolulu no doubt you will end up at Waikiki Beach. It is crowded but it is a nice beach with crystal clear waters
