When you stay in Waikiki you’re close to many of the landmark attractions most visitors come to see, including a few more you may not know about. We suggest you start on Kalakaua Avenue at Waikiki Beach.
Swim, boogie board, learn to surf – you can do it!
Duke Kahanamoku Statue
Hawaii’s surfing legend and Hollywood’s original Tarzan – a great photo opportunity.
Within easy walking distance. You’ll know you’re close when you can hear the animal orchestra.
Walk to it, then walk around it – beautiful.

Oceanside, across from Kapiolani Park.
Chic boutiques, fabulous restaurants – window shop, people-watch.
Diamond Head Crater and Lookout
Drive to it, then walk to the lookout. Bring water, a flashlight (there’s a tunnel) and walking shoes.
Ala Moana Shopping Center
The largest shopping center in the Pacific. Hop aboard the open air Waikiki Shuttle. The drivers love to talk.
Don’t miss the four pristine ocean lagoons at the Ko Olina Resort & Marina – breathtaking and serene.
Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor
A haunting memorial to the lives lost during the 1942 attack on Pearl Harbor. Visited by thousands annually.
Aloha Stadium Swap Meet
Kitch to “bling bling.” Go ahead and haggle – it’s expected
Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park, Kapolei
The Big Kahuna and other wild rides. What can we say? It’s a blast!
Waikele Shopping Center
Premium outlet stores and local grinds (food) – the best place to get great deals
