Top 10 US Destinations - The Beauty of Waikiki Beach and Oahu, Hawaii
If you're looking for a getaway that takes you to white, sandy beaches and fun in the sun, then Waikiki Beach is the answer. With beautiful blue waters and plenty of sun, you'll find a relaxing environment that will ease all the stress right out of your life.
Waikiki Beach is located on the isle of Oahu, which is the third largest of the Hawaii islands. It also holds the highest percentage of Hawaii's population. Waikiki Beach is on the south side of Honolulu, the state's capital, and all the resorts and accommodations there are only two or three blocks from the beach.
Staying on Oahu is about much more than just fun in the sun. There are also countless adventures to be had, like on Diamond Head, which is located in the backdrop of Waikiki. The 760-foot crater is a very popular hiking destination because of the beautiful panoramic views that are yours when you conquer this peak.
Other attractions on Oahu in the Waikiki area include the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium. There is also much to be learned about this tropical paradise by hiking the Waikiki Historical Trail. Shopping includes the Waikiki Beach Walk, which is almost eight acres of shopping and entertainment.
Of course there is plenty to do inside Waikiki, but if you do decide to venture out, you're within thirty minutes of several other attractions, including the Iolani Palace, Pearl Harbor, and Chinatown.
Oahu provides sand, surf, and so much more for every member of the family. There are shopping destinations and fine dining opportunities galore within this tropical Mecca of fun in the sun, and don't forget the snorkeling, scuba diving, and reef exploration. There is so much to do that the fun never stops!
