“Fort DeRussy park - on the beach”

Attraction details
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We stayed at a relative's apartment in Honolulu and could walk to Waikiki Beach, but drove to Fort DeRussy (only about 1-2 miles). Parking is at a premium, but it's very worthwhile making the trek to Fort DeRussy. The beach is much less crowded than farther north. There are beach chairs, umbrellas to rent, as well as activities, like ocean kayak, paddle board, water tricycle. Additionally, the DoD owns Hale Koa hotel there, so there's several places to eat, including a barefoot bar right off the sand. Plus there are bathroom facilities and water for sandy feet. The park has nice grass areas and picnic tables, with grills and some shady spots. We picniced and grilled there. It was perfect, as we had a beautiful view of the beach and water from a shady, grassy spot.

Quiet park located on either side of the Hale Koa Hotel, where active duty military, retired military, and DoD civilians stay. Armed MPs and busy groundskeepers make it feel safe and comfortable, a consideration these days.

I was disappointed. I use to love this beach and visited weekly - maybe it was just because it reachable by bus? It's rundown, the bathhouse dirty, many homeless in the park. Now - I'd rent a car and get away from Waikiki.

A very nice place to just sit back, unwind, picnic, have a Longboard, or meditate. Liked the people watching, and jogging or walking trails.

OMGosh can you say the "Nicest" beach. It is a part of the military part of the beach Hubby a Marine. People are soooo nice and everyone is having a bunch of fun. Obviously it is Honolulu, but still has the best places to eat on the beach and the people having parties are always inviting, and grills galore. Love this beach bc you meet someone EVERY time. Good people great beach Great times!
