I am a huge fan of this local beach which is just off of the Waikiki tourist route. It has wonderful sand and excellent places to swim in.

If you want to see how locals enjoy a day on the beach, this is the place. Located opposite Kapiolani Park, near the Zoo, you have showers/bathroom/changing facilities. The waves are mild and you can paddle board or swim.
