Best Beaches in Honolulu

1. Lanikai Beach

Lovely Lanikai

When it comes to beaches, size does not matter: Lanikai Beach is only a half mile in length, but it constantly garners accolades from visitors for its beauty and perfection.

In addition to gorgeous white sand and water temperatures reaching the 80s, the beach boasts two nearby islands that serve as a backdrop seemingly made just for postcards. No wonder photographers find themselves unable to resist the urge to capture this place.

One of a Kind

Lanikani Beach's scenic sunrises are renowned, drawing people at the wee hours of the morning. Its waves are just right for surfing, and while it's popular, a lack of surrounding businesses means it retains the serenity that many visitors crave in a beach trip.

Tips for your Trip

If you decide to make Lanikai Beach your next vacation destination, there are a few things you should plan for. There are no lifeguards or public bathrooms on the beach, and no public parking is offered.

It's tempting to park in the residential areas, but beware that you could get a hefty ticket, so be sure to read the signs carefully. To access the beach, you'll need to find and use a public beach access path.

2. Waikiki Beach

Hawaii's Trendiest Beach

This quintessential Hawaiian beach sits snugly on the island of Oahu, watched over by the majestic Diamond Head volcanic remnants. As one of the archipelago's most popular oceanfront stretches, Waikiki Beach brings together all of the elements of the Hawaiian lifestyle and culture that people from around the world crave.

Chilled-out surfers, fashionable sunbathers, fun-loving families and over-the-top-in-love honeymooners are drawn year-after-year to its lively shores.

If you're a fan of palm trees, abundant waves, tropical urban chic and islander culture, you'll be drawn to Waikiki Beach, too.

Activities Abound

Just like the city standing over it, Waikiki Beach is brimming with activity. Naturally, surfers converge here for the consistently strong waves, but visitors also love to partake in some snorkeling, swimming, body-boarding, paddle-boarding and anything else that can keep them in the warm, wonderful waters.

If simply taking in the view is more your thing, stick around and watch the sunset turn the sky into a palette of fiery colors, or enjoy a walk along the Waikiki Beach promenade.

Nearby Attractions

To get a taste of the area's action, head to palm-tree-lined Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues, where upscale restaurants, cafes and luxury shops can keep you entertained for hours.

Tons of nearby attractions will compete for your time and attention. Don't miss the Waikiki Aquarium, Pearl Harbor and Chinatown, and be sure to snap a photo of yourself with next to statue of iconic Hawaiian swimmer and surfer, Duke Kahanamoku.
