Way too many people, the beach was clean but just too full. There wasn’t very much room for big beach blankets or a large family to sit together unless you sit far from the water.

If you don't mind a lot of traffic this beach is stunning. However, if you go around 6:00 am, sun rises around that time, you practically have the whole beach to yourself. You do feel safe with lots of law enforcement around, and the traffic...More

The beach is amazing, with many activities to do from walking, running or biking by the gorgeous sand of Wailkiki, or to swim, surf or relax suntanning.

If you want to experience the sand and some shade from a palm tree the beach at the Hilton Hawaiian Village is the best area. Their lagoon is great with a grassed area as well.

Obviously is a nice place and the sunset is amazing as it’s everywhere else. If you’re looking only for a quick jump into the water ok.. But if you’re willing to spend the afternoon around, there is so much more to see around and it...More
