A Wonderous Week in Waikiki!

90%
Found this guide helpful

Oahu is a great island of Hawaii, the focal point being Waikiki and Waikiki beach. Waikiki is a great place to centre yourself as it has many restaurants, bars and shopping, and of course the wonderful beach! There is plenty to do all over the whole island to suit everyone. This guide is based on my week in Oahu and the activities we did, there are so many more that i couldn't get to as there is so much, plus being Hawaii you need to have some days of chilling at the beach and doing nothing! Check out the reviews and I'm sure you can find something that suits you! If you have any questions, please let me know!

blueflag08's City Tips

  • if you go up Diamond Head, go early!!!! you beat the crowds which can get pretty busy and you also beat the heat! you can get up in 30-40 mins with a moderate paced walk!
  • some restaurants may have a wait time for you to be seated so be prepared, luckily there are plenty of shops nearby so you can walk around and come back later
  • lots of bars have happy hour (cheap drinks) so work out which ones do and what time and go enjoy some happy hour drinks!
  • the closer to the beach the more expensive the hotels are! a street or 2 back from the beach has great hotels and can be great value!
  • if you hire a car - book in advance & go early to pick it up - the lines get very long & you don't want to stand in line for ages waiting when you could be out exploring!
  • hire a car and do a day trip of the North Shore - it is a must!
  • make sure you have a cheesecake at the Cheesecake factory!
  • For shopping, visit Ala Moana shopping centre via bus from Waikiki, the outlets are further out and not worth the trip
  • Remember you will have to tip and restaurants, we usually tip at least 10%, if it's good service then give a little more, 15%, and if its suburb service then maybe even 20%!

    We stayed at this hotel and highly recommend it! it is one street back from the beach, we could walk there in less than 2 minutes! it is connected to Jimmy Buffets and directly above Macys! Cheesecake factory and many other good restaurants are close by. The room was big and clean, everything you need in a hotel!

    great beach to visit , go for a swim and of course, go snorkelling! thousands of fish just off the shore so you don't have to go very far to see them - even if you aren't a good swimmer you can walk in and see heaps of fish - maybe a turtle if your lucky!
