This is a very busy main drag in Waikiki. There are many tourists shopping and walking to bars or restaurants. There are many street performers and street vendors next to the shops too. Very lively and crowded street.

Kalākaua Avenue is a renowned shopping street in Waikiki. Even if you don’t buy anything, you can enjoy window shopping. All major hotels are nearby. So, if you go to Hawai’i, you go necessarily to this shopping area.

A fun place to see the shops and restaurants of Waikiki. Don't go out too late as the homeless have made it a bit unsafe . But definitely go and shop, take a look at the surfers, eat a great meal on the ocean front...More
