You can't go to Waikiki & not get a photo with Duke! Iconic landmark, free, easy access & a great photo opportunity with a view of beautiful Waikiki Beach behind him. We took our Leis we'd received from the Polynesian Cultural Centre & placed them...More

Walked by this statue many times during our vacation. Always makes for a great photo op for young or just young at heart.

Great place to snap a few photos...right on the beach in Waikiki. Lots of tourists in the area, so pack your patience for your beautiful photos.

Worth walking by once, I guess if you're a surfin' dude it would be more of an attraction. Nearby beaches & attractions are great, a surfing competition is held at this spot.

This is the "historic" area of Waikiki and worth looking around. Kings Village is around the corner and the beautiful Surfrider hotel next door. If you like history and want to see a little of the "old" Waikiki, then this is for you.
