“nice beach area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Uncrowded beach with easy access to shade, restrooms, showers, umbrella & lounge chair rentals, food is close by. Much less commotion than beaches on either end of Waikiki.

“Lovely Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a lovely park which borders the beach in Waikiki. If you don't like the sand so much, this is the place to sunbathe.

“Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Fort DeRussy Beach has a central location, but is less commercial and crowded than Waikiki Beach. We went for a walk along the beachside path before attending the luau at the nearby Hale Koa military hotel. There is a nice atmosphere, with people playing beach volleyball and walking their dogs. The adjacent green park has lots of shade, with picnic tables and public BBQs.

“a great beach park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

that u can sunbathe, bbque, swim, snorkel, and kayak. on sunday I watched a couple of paddle boarders try to put their pomerian on the paddle board. he eventually didnt jump off. there are grassy areas and white sand beach. by the subways there is a great local dive steak place as well as the cheapest kayak rental place (right by the outrigger) -- $15 for an hour if I remember.

if u walk down toward the Hilton you will see what looks like a drive in. you can get a burger and a beer or mixed drink though they aren't the cheapest.

didn't go to the army museum but could be something else to do,

btw the snorkeling isn't great as the water can be a little murky

“Nice getaway from hustle bustle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Walk through this beautiful park and get a history lesson on the sacrifices made by our Hawaiian family-go though museum-visit displays then kick back & enjoy the scenery.
