Over rated and crowded but must see... it's Waikki!Flag review
A bit over rated but you have to check it out. It's Waikiki! Lots to do in the area but the beach itself is real crowded there are many better more beautiful beaches on the island than this one. I enjoyed it more at night with all the crazy action/interesting people looking to entertain the tourists but may not be as appropriate for children! But bring your towel and park yourself for some good people watching action any time of day.. just get there eary for a prime spot. It gets very crowded, especially on weekends.

Second, there are bathrooms, yes they were busy bathrooms with a crazy vagrant standing in the front of it for about 5 minutes yelling his head off. BUT it was a clean bathroom nonetheless. Yes, the showers near the bathrooms near the wall was plugged but oh well, that is most of the public sho...
Of course this beach is the busiest of all since it is the resort area. It is gorgeous, but if you do not have kids then this beach is not for you. What I do love is the beach walk, since it was my first time in Oahu, I feel most comfortable around all the tourists ...
You can't really complain about any beach in Hawaii. All are equally gorgeous in their own way. Waikiki has a lovely view of Diamond Head, is a super close to most of the hotels, and has a great childre...
