Of course we had to visit the beach!! It's beautiful but crowded. There are life guards and security if you need that "safe" feeling but it's a highly populated area. Lots of surfing 😊

We had a great time coming to the beach everyday. Further down there's an area where young kids can swim which is protected by a wall. Great time had by all.

Yes, there were a lot of people there, but it wasn't wall to wall people as I had been told. It is a must see, must walk in the sand, must play in the water!

Lots of people on beach towels, some annoying music coming from hotels. Nice paved walkway along the beach.

Just a beautiful iconic beach in a beautiful location. It's Hawaii...everything is expensive. There are many attractions such as kayaks/paddle boards/surfboard/snorkeling/catamaran/paddle boats, etc, to rent. Many fine hotels and restaurants line this famous beach. Great views including awesome sunsets. Beautiful clear blue water with awesome surfs. Sand is coarse in places and lots of volcanic rock in the ocean so... More

Perfect, Perfect and even better than I imagined. It helps that we stayed at the Waikiki Shores and were within minutes of our room to the Beach. I did learn one important rule, DON'T take any rocks or shells home with you....I put my two rocks back and felt better. Thanks to my FB Friends.
