“Busy beach all day around. Nice coarse sand.”
Review of Waikiki Beach

Plenty of people on the beach is a good indicator of the popularity of Waikiki beach.

It earns its reputation as a good reasonably safe swimming beach.

Go prepared for sun and fun.

What can be said? This is Waikiki. We got umbrella and chairs and spent two days on the beach and playing in the ocean, a great time was had by all. I’m not sure there is any sunscreen left.

My family and I honestly weren't impressed with the Waikiki beaches mainly because that area has become so commercialized over time. It's definitely an area of Oahu you should see as the water and surrounding scenery are beautiful but there is little to no beach space and its very built up from hotels and other establishments. If you are able to I would encourage you to rent a car and explore some of the more expansive beaches on the island as there are so many beautiful beaches to see! (Lanikai, Waimea Bay, Bellows)

How many people can you crowd into a small area? Peaceful and remote it’s not. But plenty to do and clean it is. Get there early and reserve a spot, because it fills up fast.

to walk along a crowded strand with lots of humanity but not much originality, then be sure to pay for parking and visit Waikiki.
