Beach chairs at Waikiki are included with the room at Palm Court. After reading some of the reviews about pushy beach attendants, and poor beach chair positions for the palm court guests, I was fully prepared to find the best location on the beach and just pay for the chairs. We walked the entire beach from the area known as Palm Beach, all the way to Pedro's. As far as I am concerned, the Waikiki area is among the best. We picked a couple of chairs that were already set up in the front row. Put our palm court towels on them and enjoyed the beach. About 10 minutes later Bengiman came by just to confirm we were staying at Palm Court and to see if we needed anything. He was available throughout the day, but not at all pushy. I noticed a few "reserved" signs at some of the chairs. I asked him how we could do the same. He asked how long we would be there and said that if we like where we were, those would be our chairs for the week. Simple as that. We had lunch at Waikiki. My wife had a large salad with grilled shrimp, I had the salad with grilled chicken. The food is OK, not anything special, but not bad. €20 each for lunch, €7 each for drinks . With the $ to € conversion $68 plug tip for lunch. Yes it's a bit high, but the chairs are free and you'r on vacation. The next day, our chairs were reserved for us as promised. (Cameron and Bengamine always made sure we had what we needed)
.......The sand itself is almost white and powdery soft. No gravel or pebbles here. If you walk out to just where the surf breaks, you will notice the sand is just a little bit more coarse. Beyond that it is like powder again as far as you can go. The sand is perfect for sand sculptures. It never gets too hot to walk on barefoot. The water is crystal clear and it looks like several different shades of blue and green. There is a lot of seaweed right now. I think it is a seasonal thing. When we were here in July there was not at all. The seaweed is not a problem though. The beach attendants work hard to remove it. Unlike in the states where we tow giant rakes behind a tractor, they do it all by hand. They get there early and rake all the seaweed into a big pile at the end of the beach. By the end of the week, tropical storm Rapheal was upon us. Friday brought high wind and rough surf. Saturday was a complete wash out.
