Sure you will go to Waikiki beach at least once when you are in Oahu. Very calm and relaxing beach. A lot of other turists, a lot of near restaurants, a lot of near hotels, and so on. Some little crazy locals surfing after jumping from the decks! Nice to watch!
We recommend you to search for the "Sunset on the beach" spot, where they present movies on the beach open area for free, during some weekends.
We also recommend a great walk at the beach from the Waikiki Dukes statue to the end of the beach, where you will see a man's made lake (near to the Hilton's rainbow tower), where you can swim and relax as well.
If you want to Waikiki, is a very good spot to learn or practice the surfing and the SUP (stand up paddle).
At the afternoon end you can relax a little bit more on the water and watch the sunset.
You can take very beautiful pictures there... one side the clear and calm ocean, the other Palm trees, beautiful hotels, and the best part, get the Diamond head as the background of your picture with your loved ones!
