“Away from the maddening crowds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The beach is a haven away from the usual coconut slathered tourists beaches of Waikiki. Just down slope of Diamond Head, Great protected swimming area, plus a channel carved through the reef for canoes, surfers and stand-up paddle boarders. Lifeguard on duty. Nice mix of locals, kama'aina, Akamai visitors, families, gays and straights.

“Not the Caribbean but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

The beach was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Not what we expected because we are used to Caribbean beaches...this was not white sand or clear blue water and the undertow is strong.

“Kaimana Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We went to the beach early in the morning and there wasn't another person around. The beach was endless, the sand gleaming in the morning sun.The silence of just the waves crashing put me into the serene place. So relaxing.

“Best Beach in Waikiki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Now, if you are looking for a beach that is only a few steps away from a bar, then this isn't the beach for you. You want the stretch of beach outside of Duke's.

But if you want something that isn't too crowded, good for swimming, and just steps away from where you parked your car...this is the Waikiki beach for you.

It's the same sand, the same sun, and the same water as the crowded stretches of Waikiki, but without the stress and headache.

I go to Kaimana every week. It's exactly what I need to relax and enjoy my community. The restrooms are not so great, but that doesn't diminish my opinion.

Like most places, it's more crowded on the weekends.
