So the main flagship beach of Honolulu is Waikiki. There are plenty of others around the island that are less busy but all are good TBH. Waikiki can get crowded, but the fact you are in the center of town is a pretty good bonus....More

Waikiki Beach is the best! This is what you come to Hawaii for; sun, sand, surf. Best idea is to rent an umbrella and chair. Ignore the crowd.

I can't image how busy this place would be during high season. If you have a car and the time, go elsewhere.

The beach was beautiful. Lots of surfers in the ocean. Mostly accessed thru hotels. There is a big park at the south end. But parking is scarce. Beach is narrow and steep. A walk on it is recommended.

If you're looking for a beach for peace and quiet, you'd be better off going to any of the other fine family sites all around the island. But none beat Waikiki for shopping, dining, people watching and just night time strolling. Sure, it's a bit...More

There’s no food on the beach but heaps of eating places in the surrounding area. We just enjoyed swimming and sun bathing 👍

Rent a car and do beach at ko’olina. Then drive around north and stop at shrimp trucks. If you go to Polynesian cultural center which is great, just don’t go on little white bus tour to their church.
