Find the best place to stay — Waikiki Beach

Sparkling waters...and that's just for starters

The Waikiki Beach scene is lively, to say the least—and that’s because it’s more than just a beach. On 2 miles of plush white sands, water sports abound, bustling crowds gather, and skin becomes ever tanner. The promenade is the perfect spot for some people watching, but otherwise the heart of the action are the 8 separate sections that make each beach different from the next. Natural parks and outdoor theaters neighbor palm trees and private beaches. There are countless reasons to book a Waikiki Beach vacation rental, starting with the sparkling waters.

Unique options in Oahu's beloved beach

Outdoor movies, anyone? Take in a flick on Queen’s Beach. For a family-friendly experience, Fort DeRussy Beach Park is dotted with picnic tables and shaded trees. Nightlife is also a serious deal in Waikiki Beach—there are dive bars, live music, beachfront dining options, and dance clubs. New to the area? Climb aboard the hop-on, hop-off trolley and ride along as you observe palaces, parks, and historic sites. It’s always wedding season in Waikiki Beach, too, so if an oceanfront nuptial is on the cards, this is the place. The beaches are also prime spots for camping.

It's a wild, wild life in Waikiki Beach

One of the area’s most popular attractions, Honolulu Zoo offers a glimpse of exotic wildlife, while visitors enjoy marine life at the Waikiki Aquarium. Celebrating surf culture at Kuhio Beach Park, a handsome sculpture of a surfer perched on his board with a seal pup calls for attention. Escape your Waikiki Beach vacation rental and spend the day diving into state history, where the U.S. Army Museum showcases a variety of military tanks, history exhibits, and a Cobra helicopter. Scattered throughout the community are abundant botanical gardens brimming with vivid blossoms.

The stuff of dreams for the warm-bodied sun lovers

Talk about a tropical delight. Anyone who books a Waikiki Beach vacation rental will spend plenty of time soaking up the sunshine in temperatures ranging from the mid 70s to the 90s. Anytime is a great time to visit the primarily dry region, and it’s easy to narrow the seasons to solely summer and winter. It’s warm and dry during the former months, while a sprinkle may surprise you in the winter. Even then, temperatures are unlikely to dip below 65 degrees. A pleasant breeze occasionally whips around the beach.

Beach life and a state monument in unforgettable Waikiki

Along Honolulu’s southernmost shore, this oceanfront district is one of the most popular beaches in Hawaii. Marine life here runs rampant, and you’ll find Hawaiian green sea turtles, humpback whales, dolphins, and monk seals, to name a few. The Diamond Head Crater beckons from afar, but don’t be intimidated by its majesty—despite its size, the volcano is a State Monument that visitors absolutely love to hike. You don’t have to be a surfer to enjoy the ocean—hop in an outrigger canoe and tour Waikiki while observing what lurks in the sea below.
