Our kids had fun loved that it had place to wash off feet from the sand!! Loved that the waves weren’t crazy! Fun overall for everyone

What a beautiful beach that isn't as populated as I'd imagined. The water is beautiful and there is plenty of opportunities for sports.

The beach has been sectioned off into breakwater areas and the whole area has lost its appeal as it has now been all but destroyed by so called progress.

This beach is so beautiful. Lots to see and do in the area with lots of amenities along the way. A separate pool area for those that don't want to mix it with the surfers and places to hire chairs, umbrellas and surfboards too.

Just a short walk from our hotel and then a pleasant stroll along the beach. At one end the hotels come right to the beach and the other has walkway verge. Plenty of people on the beach but it is Waikiki, with plenty of activities...More

A lot going on at this beach destination. You can swim, take surfing lessons, rent an umbrella and beach chairs, or Walk along the paved pathway that strolls past high rise hotels like the iconic Ilikai and numerous beach front restaurants.

The beach was fairly crowded during September. The water was warm and clear. We didn't feel an undertow. There were no rocks in the water...........just pure sand! Loved it!!

The quiet end by the zoo is just lovely. Not so crowded and the sea wall makes for shallow wave free swimming for toddlers. Nice open parks nearby. Many excellent restaurants at the end also

Waikiki is great don't get me wrong but like other famous beaches they are overcrowded and beach and umbrella charges are ridiculous in price. if you hire a car my recommendation is to drive 40 mins to the east side of the island to Kailua...More

If you and your niece love shopping, try the International Marketplace at 2330 Kalakaua Avenue. But, be sure to hit the shops along the avenue, and not just the mall. And, while tours are an easy way to see some spots, I’d... More
