Revered as the birth place of surfing and Aloha spirit, Waikiki is a tourist hot spot for any and all beach lovers. Located on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Waikiki is the perfect spot for people watching, world-class shopping and boasts the best views of the iconic Diamond Head.
What to Do
Rent a SUP or surfboard and paddle out into the middle of this giant shallow bay. You may even see a turtle or 4! Don’t wanna get sandy? Then get spending as you stroll along Kalakaua Avenue. With everything from high-end handbags to bikinis on a budget, it’s a shopaholics dream!
Where to Eat & Drink
Sip on a Mai Tai from the infinity pool at the Sheraton Waikiki which overlooks the entire turquoise bay then eat, drink and spread aloha at an evening luau.
Where to Stay
For the most authentic island experience rich in Hawaiian culture and history, stay at the Moana Surfrider, the very first hotel built on Oahu in 1901.
Where to Party
Hop on a sunset catamaran cruise (drinks and panoramic ocean views included) then head to The Beach Bar at the Moana Surfrider for seaside cocktails and more uninterrupted views of the big blue.
