We just happen to walk up on this gem not knowing what it really was. It's in a great spot with great picture possibilities.

Need to visit just to say you have done it, an easy walk from the main part of Waikiki. IT is a trolley bus stop.

This is a beautiful statue. It is located in a central location, and you can get beautiful pictures in here. It is worth the visit.

The statue is right on Waikiki beach, with a couple of torches on either side, looks really nice at night once the sun sets, but is the iconic symbol of the entire area.

This is in a popular spot. Waikele Bus pick up location. The statute is quite a sight both during the day and at night. There is a stage near here which holds lots of performances.

Situated on Kalakaua Avenue along the Waikiki beachfront is the statue of a surfing icon. The statue was adorned with colourful leis and was surrounded by tourists as we walked past. Recommend as a must do tourist photo stop.

The Statue of the Duke was the first thing I ever saw on Waikiki Beach. He's a great ambassador for Hawaii. I've been taking his picture for seven years now. A very popular fellow around here!
