Waikiki Beach is reknowned for its sunsets, views of Diamond Head and perfect waves for those enjoy the art of longboarding.  In the early half of the 20th century, it was the original home to the exclusive Outrigger Canoe Club and the playground to legendary surfers such as Duke Kahanamoku (also a three-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer), Rabbit Kekai and Chick Daniels.

Today this long stretch of beach – various parts of it are given different names – is now packed with visitors from all over the world, fronted by numerous bars and restaurants as well as luxury hotels. It is also a great spot to check out Friday Night Fireworks or catch the annual season premier of the hit TV show Hawai‘i 5-0.
