  • Sure it's crowded with tourists, but it's a great beach. The water is nice year round and the surrounding area is loaded with shops and restaurants.

  • One of the most well known beaches in the world. That tourist from all around the world come to visit for it's soft sand and crystal clear water and Panoramic views of Diamond Head,shops and restaurants all within a walking distance. This is a must stop beach when visiting Oahu. I hope this helps you out and have a great day.
  • Great place for surfing at all times of day! The beach is always crowded but it’s to be expected considering all of the hotels around. And the sunsets here are amazing!
