The Beaches of Waikiki
Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Waikiki Beach is not just one beach, but rather it is a series of beaches that stretch along the south shore of Oahu Island from the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor to Diamond Head Crater.

Photos and information about the beaches of Waikiki, beginning with Duke Kahanamoku Beach on the Alai Wai Harbor end of Waikiki to San Souci Beach on the Diamond Head end of Waikiki Beach.

Kahanamoku Beach

This man-made beach and lagoon on the Ala Moana end of Waikiki, in front of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort, was named after legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku. The Atlantis submarine tours and dinner cruises pick up passengers at the Port Hilton Dock which is located on Kahanamoku Beach.

Fort DeRussy Beach
The widest stretch of white sand beach in Waikiki is located in Fort DeRussy Beach Park. It is a popular spot for snorkeling because of the coral reef a few hundred feet offshore.

Gray's Beach
This is the beach in front of the luxurious Halekulani Hotel

Royal Manoa Beach
The beach in front of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and the Sheraton Moana Surfrider is really two beaches, Kahaloa Beach and Ulokou Beach.

Kuhio Beach Park
Kuhio Beach Park includes the section of Waikiki Beach between the historic Moana Hotel and the Kapahulu Groin. The offshore retaining wall at Kuhio Beach creates a sheltered swimming area, making it a popular beach for family outings.

Queen's Surf Beach
This beach is named after Queen Liliuokalani because her beach house use to sit on this site. This beach is located between the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium. Access is off of Kalakaua Avenue.

San Souci Beach
The beach in front of the New Otani Hotel and the Waikiki Natatorium is called San Souci Beach, and sometimes it is also called "Dig Me Beach". Access is from the parking lot on the east side of the Natatorium, off of Kalakaua Avenue.
