Getting Wet At Waikiki Beach

When people think of Hawaii the images that come to mind is the famous Waikiki Beach. This is a two mile stretch of coast fronted by hotels and tourism related facilities and the very beautiful Kapiolani Park. The beach is popular for swimming, canoeing, surfing snorkeling and sun bathing.

Being high season, I expected the beach to be extremely crowded but I was able to find parking less than a block away and the beach had tons of open spaces to set up camp. The weather was pretty much prefect and I can see why many people referred to Hawaii as paradise.

Waikiki is more than just the beach. The nearby Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium offer fun for the whole family. You can learn about the history of Waikiki by reading the surfboard markers along the Waikiki Historical Trail. Among the various things to do, shopping and dining can be found all along Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues and at gathering places like the Royal Hawaiian Center and the Waikiki Beach Walk.

    1. It’s a good place to visit and enjoy the aloha environment. I was there 3 times already and it’s always nice to go back.

      John, you may want to check out the Sea Life Park. It’s not that far from Waikiki when you drive there. You can swim with the dolphins.

      1. Swim with dolphins that one is sounding really great.

        John go there and shoot some great pics and videos.

    2. Nice, my uncle and aunt used to live in Honolulu, but I never had the chance to visit them.

        You do not have to worry about the accomodation and conveyance at least.

    How serendipitous! Truthfully, I don’t visit your site very often but I randomly visited today and was surprised to see that you’re in my home state. Mahalo for all your kind words. If you’d like some true local tips or even a personal tour guide (I have young daughters like yourself), let me know and we’ll see what we can do.

    Enjoy your stay!

    Hi John,
    Just downloaded your ebook – and I’m very encouraged by it. Have only read a few chapters, but feel inspired and hopeful about this whole blogging thing.
