Waikiki Beach Information

Waikiki Beach Information

Legendary Waikiki Beach is actually a series of smaller beaches that stretch across a mile and a half of coast, each small area with its own character - from Kuhio Beach outside the Sheraton Moana Surfrider which attracts sea turtles, to Grey's Beach in front of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, to Sans Souci or "dig me" beach in front of the New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel.

Waikiki is Hawaiian for "Sprouting water" and the beach, which was actually created with imported sand from Molokai, fronts landmark hotels, open-air restaurants, and boutique shops. Millions of people visit this strip each year and the trendy area is always busy. It's an especially famous place to watch experienced surfers ride the waves.

The water is wonderful for swimming, surfing, boogie and bodysurfing, outrigger canoeing, and a variety of other water sports - diving, sailing, snorkeling, and fishing. You can rent equipment for almost any beach activity here, and there are bathrooms, showers, lifeguards, picnic facilities, and parking.

You can reach the beach from various spots along the strip (it runs from 2909 Kalakaua Ave. to 2005 Kalia Rd.), but the best place to park is at Kapiolani Park.
