Waikiki Beach is the most famous beach in Hawaii and is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, surfers and outrigger canoes. There is plenty to do for anyone visiting this beach and is a must for anyone visiting Honolulu.
For those wishing to get away from the crowds there is the Ala Moana Park with its green spaces and small beach which is ideal for families seeking calmer waters.
There are several beautiful beaches to the east of Honolulu in the Makapu'u point area with the most popular being Hanauma Bay which is good for snorkelling and scuba diving due to the coral reef and the natural enviroment of volcanic rock. Nearby is Halona Beach Cove which is a small rocky cove with calm water and also Sandy Beach which is popular with swimmers and surfers.
For those wishing to try their hand at surfing Makapu'u beach has large waves and is ideal to catch a wave but not ideal for swimmers.
