There are many people on this beach, to the point where it is hard to find a spot to sit. This is also a good thing tho if you want to have some pretty good and entertaining people watching! There are a lot of homeless people that sleep on this beach at all hours!

The most wonderful place! Gorgeous beach , lovely waterfront hotels where you buy a drink or lunch, perfectly safe for kids or non swimmers for the first 100 feet of water, no one hustling you to buy things, lots of great little shops, walk to Zoo.
Great bus service, safe at night, glorious at xmas
This is the most wonderful, welcoming place.
Bit expensive but you get what you pay for.

Homeless and mental health cases strung far and wide. People were out surfing in 6 inch waves. Others swimming, kids wading where boats came in.

This is one of the best known beaches in North America. There is a reason that this developed into the main tourist area in the country's most beautiful state. Of course, it can feel overcrowded now, and it is not an idyllic, secluded beach. The water is safe and the waves aren't real big. Overall it is a great place for a group to hang out or for a family vacation.

Nice beach for sunbathing or stroll along after dinner. The weather in Hawaii is so pleasant year round, so a visit to the beaches is a must. The beaches are clean with lots of trees and coconut trees if you would like to stay in the shade and enjoy the beautiful ocean views. All the beaches in Waikiki can get pretty crowded during the peak season. If you have a rental car, you can drive toward closer to the Diamond Head area where there is a huge park and the beach there is much less crowded. Enjoy the nice weather and beautiful beaches in Hawaii. Aloha!

First of all this beach has a lot of action meaning more than any other other beach in Hawaii . Second it it is a very very fun beach. Third it is the cleanest urban beach that I have ever seen. Lastly I like Kahala Beach better.

The beach was too crowded to enjoy. Beaches in MD or NJ are nicer. Too commercial. Stayed maybe 30 minutes to stay we visited the beach.

The beach has awesome sand! You can also get whatever you want along this beach, from your picture with a parrot to the most beautiful sunsets, to food, and all manner of rentals like surfboards, cruises, etc.

The beach is crowded at times but just keep walking toward Diamond Head and it quiets down a little. A bit. The beach was really clean too.

There are fish swimming right up to the shore sometimes and there are little reefs you can snorkel around and see more sea life. But generally there

The water can get pretty deep pretty fast but there are lots of lifeguards and manmade barriers that minimize waves.

Especially as you move toward the extreme ends of the beach you will see homeless people. There are a lot of them in Honolulu, mostly not on the beach, but there are hobos. None of them ever bothered me though.

The water is warm and clear, the weather is great. I loved spending Christmas at the beach and would encourage anyone else to do the same.
