World-renowned and made up of a two-mile crescent of white sand, Waikīkī Beach is the epitome of a Hawaiʻi destination.
Because of its status as a frequently-trafficked beach, Waikīkī Beach is a great place for people watching. You can observe people from all over the world as visitors and locals alike flock to the beach throughout the year. Whether you’re looking to surf, swim, snorkel, paddle canoe, stand up paddle or simply relax on the sand, Waikīkī Beach truly has it all.
Waikīkī Beach is actually made up of multiple beaches along Oʻahu’s southern coast including Kuhio Beach, Duke Kahanamoku Beach and Fort DeRussy Beach Park, just to name a few. Each sub-section of the beach is known for something different, making it one of the most entertaining and exciting spots on the island. Looking to try your hand at stand up paddle boarding? Do you prefer snorkeling to explore the underwater world? Or are you someone who’d rather spend the day building sandcastles near the shore? Do all that and more at Waikīkī Beach. Then linger through the early evening hours to catch a spectacular sunset and picturesque views of Diamond Head.
