The Area: Waikiki, Honolulu
Located on the southern shore of Honolulu, the world-renowned neighbourhood of Waikiki was once a playground for Hawaiian royalty. In Hawaiian, Waikiki means “spouting waters”, which is apt since it is surrounded by clear blue waves. It is most famous for its white sand beaches, especially Waikiki Beach.
With the Diamond Head crater in the background, the waters of Waikiki are ideal for surfing and submarine tours. Other attractions like the Honolulu Zoo and Waikiki Aquarium offer fun for the whole family. Learn about the history of Waikiki by reading surfboard markers placed along the Waikiki Historical Trail. Shop and dine at Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues and at other famous spots like the Royal Hawaiian Centre and the Waikiki Beach Walk.
Waikiki is also located within a half-hour journey to a number of Oahu attractions like Pearl Harbor, Iolani Palace, the Nuuanu Pali Lookout and Hanauma Bay. Tourists may venture into other places of interest like the Ala Moana Centre, the local neighbourhood of Kapahulu and the arts district of Chinatown.
