The beach, accessible to all people regardless of hotels built on the beach's edge, is packed with hotel guests and the general public. Many parts of it are much narrower than one would imagine, making it a very packed place to sunbath or spend the...More

Must spend at least a day and the world famous Waikiki beach! Walk the shopping strip and window shop, or try things on! It is busy, sunny, loud, and everything an overcrowded, famous beach should be!

Beautiful beach, the beach nearest to the lagoon is a bit sore on the foot due to coral but the beach past the pier is really really nice. Beautiful sand, beautiful weather

Our hotel was just a block off the beach within easy walking distance. Many places offer chair and umbrella service for the day, at a cost of course. Beautiful beach, great swimming in the ocean and clean.

Not sure if your trip is over, but we find the pool bar overlooking the ocean at the Westin Hotel is simply stunning. If you venture up to the north shore, the sunsets are spectacular .
