Exactly as one imagines with the super city of Honolulu behind the beach, possibly the best city I have visited.

The surf has an undertow but there is a huge area surrounded by a breakwater which makes it very safe. Can swim all day, but nearer high tide is better.

After 30 years it’s much the same. Beautiful warm water (watch out for coral), and lots of large hotels. Everyone friendly... it’s a safe family holiday destination.

Waikiki beach is beautiful and softer than most of the sand in Australia. A lot of beach and calm so there is no worries about children getting knocked down. Water temps are similar to Brisbane so not as tropical as I would have liked. Everything...More

The quick answer about weather in Hawaii is it's pretty much the same all year round, (awesome) but there is a bit of an increase in rainy days from November to about March. Having said that though you could be sitting on... More
