You know that you’re in Hawaii when you step onto the pristine white sand of world-famous Waikiki Beach. Dip your toes into the warm Pacific waters and watch the surfers show off their moves on the waves, or sit back in the shade of a palm tree and gaze up at the green slopes of Diamond Head.
For a swim, jump in at the western end of the beach, where a reef creates a natural lagoon. This is the safest place, as it’s well away from the waves and surfboards.
If you’ve always wanted to give surfing a go, then Waikiki is the place to do it. The gentle rollers here are perfect for beginners, and you’ll find several companies on the beach willing to show you the ropes. After your lesson, be sure to check out the larger-than-life statue of Duke Kahanamoku, which stands with open arms on the promenade behind the beach. A former Olympic swimming champion, “The Duke” is also credited with introducing the sport of surfing to the world.
If all that paddling isn’t your idea of a relaxing holiday, then Waikiki Beach is a great place to spend a lazy afternoon in the sun. There’ll almost always be something to keep you amused, with regular shows including hula competitions and outrigger canoe races, as well as the acrobatic tandem surfing. It is astonishing to see two people perform athletic circus acts while riding the waves.
When evening comes, the beach becomes one of the island’s most romantic places to enjoy a sunset. On Friday nights, the spectacular colors of the Polynesian sky are matched by a free fireworks show at the western end of the beach. The beach is lined with hotel bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
Waikiki Beach is a great place to swim, surf and relax any time of year. Its popularity means that it does get crowded, but you’ll often find quieter areas in front of Kapiolani Park. While the public beach is generally a safe place to visit, never leave your valuables unattended.
Great location!! The restaurant/bar was awesome even though we couldn't get into the restaurant we used the bar. The restaurant was always packed. The rooms were clean. They definitely could use updating but we weren't in our room that much. This hotel has amazing views. From the rooms as well as ...
Property was fine. There wasnt much to do at the place and everything closed really early. There were only a few bars and they were only open about 4 to 5 hrs a day and late in the day. The rooms had a fridge but no microwave. And its very very crowded there with lots and lots of kids.
The resort was in a great location right off of the beach. It had a lot of additional activities that were nice, however, there was an additional $40 per night fee that we were unaware of. However, instructors did not show up to the scheduled classes, the pool bar staff did not greet us or take our ...
We had a very nice stay, I would recommend this hotel. Lines were very long at check-in
Loved the location of this property, being right on the beach & in the centre of Waikiki. Our room was a city view room however we still had a great ocean view. Dukes was a great place eat or have a drink but was always crowed due to popularity. Staff were all very friendly. Would definitely stay ...
Had an amazing time at the Trump, my wife and I came to celebrate our anniversary and it was a blast she loved it. We originally booked a deluxe studio, but when we got there the front desk told us we could upgrade to a Deluxe Suite corner room with an ocean view for literally an $50 a night! I’m ...
The hotel is very central and is right on the beach. Hotel has a great pool too.
