    If you want a beach and sun for a few days, this is it. No need to rent a car. Lots of good hotels a block off the beach.

    Great sand, so soft. The outriggers also seemed very good with walk up service on most days.

    Waikiki is my favorite place to be! Many amenities such as kayaking, paddle, surf and boat tours. From beautiful sunrises to beautiful sunsets it's a great place to spend both days and nights.

    Racist locals beware. If you're not Asian or Hawaiian 99.9% chance they don't like you.

    Love this beach. Can get pretty crowded but has some great surf spots and a nice sheltered area of the ocean for calmer water.

    This beach is among the less liked from my trip to HI. Super hard sand imported from Australia ain't the business.

    Very nice view, great light blue clean water... But not very good for swimming when windy, but perfect for families with children

    We went on a beautiful day and saw the sunset. This time of year is not as crowded as I heard it can get. Many hotels and restaurants nearby where you can grab a drink or food. Water felt nice!

    Crowded, noisy, windy and "surfy"; this is a place of contrasts... A narrow strip of sand with skyscrapers, hotels, malls, restaurants and boutiques meters away. There's always something, 24/7.

    Ciro Nigri · October 11, 2014
  • Chris C.

    Nice beach but mostly for tourists

    A little bit of everything here at the beach. From sand, surf, to beach bars and catamarans. The perfect place to visit for a touristy time.

    This was an awesome beach. They have a section where the warm clean sea water is only waist height for 60 yards into it. Seems to have decent surf and everything you need near by as well.

    If you don't know how to swim DON'T GO IN THE WATER! There are plenty of food and gear opportunities within walking distance.
