Overview
More
Many of Hawaii’s alii (royalty) lived in Waikiki and King Kalakaua selected a 300-acre track of land at the base of Diamond Head for a public park in 1867. Today, it is a gathering place that thrives with walkers, runners, tennis enthusiasts and picnickers. Grab lunch on Kalakaua Avenue and enjoy it in one of the shaded picnic areas scattered around this colorful park.

This is a lovely park with lots of grass and trees. I would not go at night alone for sure but during the day is fine. Not much to do there unless you are having a picnic or ball game.

There're other place to bewalking around in the evening in waikiki. This park is quite dark, and not as safe as Waikiki beach. During the day is fine, one of locals favorite for picnic and such.

One of the best parks in Honolulu, this one is right on the edge - Diamond Head side - of Waikiki. Lots of space, great for picnics, right next to the Honolulu zoo.

Right next to Waikiki beach and the zoo. The grounds are immaculate and a great memorial to long lost ancestors.

This is a nice quiet park nestled between waikiki on one side, diamond head on the other , and the shore. I think the beach there is nicer than Waikiki. It gets quite a few walkers and joggers but nothing like Waikiki even though it’s...More

The exhibits should be viewed with a guide to give the viewer the history and development of the exhibit. We were on tour (Segway) and got great information.

There are a lot of places you can ask about schedules of events. But the front desk of your hotel should have some of that information and they usually had booklets about the many different tours, etc.

You will find a few fish around here but nothing terribly exciting. If it's snorkeling you're after - sign up with a private tour (we used OPT) where local guides take you to the best snorkeling places around the island... More
