When the tide is in there's only a narrow strip of sand, but when you're holidaying at the beach at Waikiki who cares if you're hip-by-jowl with your neighbour? Best time to get to the beach is early morning, before the tide of tourists start filling in the patches of sand and before the sun gets too hot, and preferably at a time when the tide is in, so you don't have to wade too far out in the silky warm water. Be careful of the rocky outcroppings in the shallows. Plenty of shady trees in Fort DeRussy Park and nearby places to get cheap/expensive eats.
