Waikiki Beach

If you're ever visiting Hawaii, one of the first places you'll probably visit is Waikiki Beach. The beach front is directly adjacent to Waikiki's main road Kalakaua Avenue also known as the strip. There you'll find most of the higher end hotels and stores such as the Hilton, Hyatt Regency, Prada, Gucci, and Coach as well as some historical hotels and shops with local flair.


The beach itself is a hub for surfing and there is almost always a surfing competition or an outdoor performance on the beach. The weekend we played tourist here we were just in time to catch Duke's OceanFest, one of the largest ocean sport festivities on Oahu held in honor of Duke Paoa Kahanamoku. 



One of my favorite things about walking the Waikiki Beach are the monuments lining the avenue--pretty much every important figure in Hawaiian history has a monument on the strip. 




No trip to a Hawaiian beach would be complete without a photo of surfboards.....especially not this one. 




One of these days I'd really like to participate on one of the Hawaii 5-0 premieres they have on the beach. Oh and did I mention Hawaii 5-0 films on this beach a lot? Yes, yet another reason to visit here.  


And obviously I have to leave you with a picture of the beach. Because I'm sweet like that! 

WHAT IS A TOP TOURIST HOT-SPOT IN YOUR AREA?
