We parked along the Ala Wai Canal and walked down towards the beach. I just had to walk through the Royal Hawaii Hotel to take a closer look at this famous pink building. Must admit that I would not mind spending a couple of nights there. The Royal Hawaiian Hotel is located right at the Central Waikiki Beach, so we crashed right in front of it. I had heard on the news that jelly fish would be coming in to the coast and quite right the signs were up! Didn´t see any though.

Waikiki Beach is not very wide, but has beautiful fine and soft sand. The beach is also very clean and you will also find public toilets and showers scattered along the oceanfront. Being in the main tourist area it is extremely busy and you feel like a sardine in a tin can. Never the less I like it.

Everything is so conveniently close. There are plenty of places to either have lunch or to pick up lunch to bring back to the beach. Right next to us was a surfboard rental place, which also gave lessons on the beach. Being so busy it´s a great place for people watching. If you want more space around you, you can just walk a bit further down Waikiki Beach to Kuhio Beach Park and it woun´t be as crowded.

Kuhio Beach is marked on its eastern end by Kapahulu Groin, a wall storm drain that juts out into the ocean. A low stone breakwater, called the Wall, runs out from Kapahulu Groin , parallel to the beach. This has formed an almost closed swimming pool. The water here is nice and warm and also calm, so it´s perfect if you are traveling with small children. However, because the circulation is limited, the water can get murky with a noticeable film of suntan oil.
