Early morning sunrises are the best while walking this beach walk. It's usually pretty quiet this time of morning, the beach is freshly racked. Lots of shops along the way, bars to stop at, including the Shorebird for a fabulous breakfast.

Nice to walk along day or evening. Full of tourists but one must expect that. High prices at shops and restaurants. Go a couple of streets back for better food at same or less price.

Loved Wakiki Beach walking along the shore, soft light sand, floating in the Ocean and riding the waves and to top it off the amazing sun sets.

We went for an evening dinner when it wasn't so crowded. The beach was nice, but there were a large number of homeless and it didn't feel quite safe late evening at dusk. The streets and shops were full of activity and performers and it was a very nice stroll.

Great place to hang out, people watch and shop at expensive stores if you are so inclined. The zoo is nearby and there are a number of malls.
