Waikiki beach is beautiful and softer than most of the sand in Australia. A lot of beach and calm so there is no worries about children getting knocked down. Water temps are similar to Brisbane so not as tropical as I would have liked. Everything...More

It so central, it was not too crowded. The water was simply gorgeous. There's also a beautiful park nearby, great shopping and beautiful sand to walk in.

I've been here a few times before and it seems to have lost some of the charm and luster. I guess because the building/hotels all need a refresh. But is still a great wide beach to stroll and swim. A must see and you can...More

The water is green blue, its amazing!! Does get a bit crowed but its lovely nonetheless. Warning the tide can change very quickly, so be careful regarding your belongings getting hit by a wave (happened to me and many other tourists).

Waikiki is a giant letdown. While probably Hawaii’s most famous beach, it’s not that great as a beach. Sand is harder than say a Florida beach. The biggest issue, to me, is that the ocean floor is amazingly rocky. I wore wet shoes on this...More

This is a great beach half a block from our rented condo. It’s convenient to lots of great shops and restaurants. Waves are great for my teenage sons and water is pretty clean. The only thing I don’t like are large sharp rocks and boulders...More

The area of beach in front of the sea wall is great for families as it's shallow. Be super careful of the spots where the Seawall opens however as the tide will literally drag the sand right out from under your feet. An entire family...More

Everything about this beach, and the view of Diamond Head in the background bring it all together! It’s also located close to hotels, shops and good eats.

The best thing about this beach is the view from the top end looking down along the cost with all the highrise buildings to one side and Diamond Head at the end. It's a stunning site day or night, but if you're a beach person,...More

The quick answer about weather in Hawaii is it's pretty much the same all year round, (awesome) but there is a bit of an increase in rainy days from November to about March. Having said that though you could be sitting on... More
