Duke Kahanamoku Beach
Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii

The section of Waikiki Beach on the far west end, in front of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort and the Hale Koa Military Hotel, is known as Duke Kahanamoku Beach.

Duke Kahanamoku Beach is immediately adjacent to the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon. It is the widest beach in Waikiki and an offshore protective reef makes it a good beach for families with children. Swimmers should wear reefwalkers or some other protective footwear because the shoreline in this area has a rocky bottom. Kahanamoku beach is a popular swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and sailing beach and it is also home of the Port Hilton Dock where the Atlantis submarine tours and dinner cruises depart. Public access to Kahanamoku Beach is via Kalia Road and Pahoa Place.

Friday Night Fireworks Show

Every Friday night there is a free "King's Jubilee" torch lighting ceremony and fireworks show on Duke Kahanamoku Beach.
