The beach was filled with people on vacation but the water was great and there was plenty of interesting scenery. The drinks at Pedro's were great.

I didn't visit Waikiki Beach at Orient Bay during high season but it was still perfect! It wasn't crowded ($15. for 2 lounge chairs and an umbrella), offered tons of water sports options, and has beach service of food and drinks ($15. minimum to charge). This is the beach to go to if you'd like to try parasailing, kite surfing, wind surfing, or tubing. The surf is a little rougher here but still swimmable.

My wife and I spent a lovely week on Orient Beach and enjoyed every minute, we had great lunches with Olivier at Orange fever, get the grilled mahi mahi and thrusday is mussel day, so good. The weather was great and the water was perfect. Many sunburned folks so be careful, the breeze keeps you cool so you don't realise how bad the sun is. I am somewhat annoyed at some of the previous reviewers judging who should be naked or not, there were very many attractive nude sun bathers and almost all the ones we met were especially friendly, I applaud all of them for enjoying the beach without clothes, I am sure the posters who choose to be judgemental just don't have the courage to try it. We will return soon, and hope the folks that want to judge the nudists stay away from that end of the beach..
