Things To Do in Waikiki
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, this former home of Hawaiian royalty has undergone a breathtaking renaissance. Today, Waikiki is a vibrant center of activity, a destination that showcases the spirit of Aloha to the world.
Waikiki Water Activities
Begin your visit by strolling along Waikiki's beautiful beaches. Stretching from Duke Kahanamoku Beach near the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort and Spa to the Duke Kahanamoku Statue on Kuhio Beach and beyond, you can swim, snorkel, sunbathe or take your first surfing lesson or group outrigger canoe ride.
Who knows, you may even get a surfing or outrigger paddling lesson from one of the real Waikiki Beach Boys, instructors who come from a long line of watermen taught by Duke Kahanamoku himself.
Waikiki Land Activities
After a day at the beach, explore Waikiki by foot, bike or even rented moped. Learn how to strum an ukulele or dance the hula at the Royal Hawaiian Center. Picnic with the family in Kapiolani Park then visit the Honolulu Zoo across the street. There are endless Waikiki attractions to explore. Or venture beyond Waikiki to Pearl Harbor or the North Shore to get the most out of your stay on Oahu.
After a day in the surf visit a Waikiki spa to relax and unwind. With some of the finest hotels and resorts on Oahu, Waikiki's excellent spas offer lomilomi massage and other relaxing wellness and rejuvenation treatments unique to the islands.
Waikiki Restaurants and Bars
As the sun sets, explore Waikiki's lively restaurant, bar and nightlife scene in places like the new Waikiki Beach Walk. Before you know it, the sun will rise over Waikiki again, marking a fresh new day of fun and activity.
