Waikiki has it all. Spend a day learning to surf, canoe paddling, or riding on a catamaran sailboat. The famous beach may be crowded but it is the best place to people watch, sunbathe and swim.

Waikiki Beach is the Hub of all tourism in Oahu. It has a huge strip of Hotels, Shops, and Restaurants which can be both god and bad depending on what your looking for.
When trying to avoid the crowds head up toward the Zoo where the beach is quieter and you are able enjoy the sunset with a little more peace.Recommended for:Family Travelers

If your a beginner or advance surfer this is the place to go. During June/July months the waves are so much fun and there are a couple of different breaks suitable for everyone. Hiring a board is pretty easy if you don't have your own and that way you can swap them round if the swell picks up or drops off. It's a great beach for the family as the currents are not bad on the shore for younglings, meaning fun for the whole family. The water is as clear as too!

Have you heard of the Andy Cummings song "Waikiki" sung by the Brothers Cazimero? It brings me to tears each time I hear it. Such a beautiful melody for a beautiful place. It used to be the playground for the rich and wealthy pre-war. Modern days it is a mecca for tourists to shop, dine, and play. Having fun in the sun, playing in the sand, and surfing the USA! Waikiki Beach is like no other, hot men and women all around, hotels lined along the shore, swaying palm trees and lit-up tiki torches, hip hotels, wonderful ocean front restaurants, beaches of soft sand and clear blue waters, and just a beautiful sight. It is a great place to see the sun rise above Diamond Head and one of the best spots to watch the sun set towards the Pacific Ocean. A visit to Oahu isn't complete until you get to stroll along Waikiki, dip your toes into the sand, and jump into the ocean.

The ocean is gorgeous, but the beach is crowded and touristy. I still recommend seeing the beach, but there are much better, less populated spots if your goal is to stay a while and catch some sun.

Never mind the tourists, Waikiki Beach is a must for summer. The waves are pounding here on the south side of the island during summertime. Cool off by jumping into the ocean or grab a drink at one of the many beachside bars.

Waikiki Beach is a Honolulu must. This famous beach has been in more movies than Michael Caine (if you can believe that) and for good reason - the sand, surf and locals are gentle and warm (no locals only vibe here) so it's a fine place for a howlie to dip his or here toes into the fascinating Pacific Islander culture (or a cleaned up and sanitized version of it for the tourists anyway)

Waikiki is so much fun!
It is a big city but there is so much to do!
If you are a nightlife person you will love it.
It also changes constantly...each time I go back I find something else interesting!
I would visit the zoo if you have never been it is really underrated.

Pull on your board shorts. Surf's up! Waikiki is the classic Hawaii vacation resort scene. But this long-time popular beach also is the spot for vintage Hawaii vibes, cool modern design, and authentic Hawaiian slack-key guitar music and hula at sunset.
