“Not so hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Close to our hotel at the far end of Waikiki beach(near the Hilton lagoon) - widest stretch of the beach, great for spreading out, Fort DeRussy park offers grassy, shaded areas to sit in when you desire. Good swimming and we found good snorkeling spots as well. Walk down to the busy end of the beach to see the crowd, but bring your book and set up here.

“More of a park, than beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This park is right by our hotel, nothing fancy but does have lots of walking paths and people watching. It's dead at night, so be careful walking through

“Nice Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is a nice park to walk through. There was really nothing special, but a nice park here and close to the beach.

“2 blocks from the Ambassador Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

this beach is under military rule-so there are M.P.'s that walk around making sure people are safe. It is less crowded, but just up from Waikiki Beach. There are many picnic tables and sand volleyball courts, which always have locals playing! This beach is GREAT for sunrises and sunsets! Waikiki has too many buildings in the way of the sunsets....

“Best on Waikiki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Because we stayed at the Hale Koa, this was "our" beach. It is perfectly located on Waikiki with amenities near at hand. Sidewalk walkway along the beach behind you so you can easily get to many of the hotels and eateries along the way. Koa beach rentals has all sorts of beach "necessities" to rent....umbrellas and lounges, boards, tricycles, whatever you need. Discount prices if military or DOD ID.
