Hawaii : Waikiki Beach



Located on the south shore of Honolulu, the world-famous neighborhood of Waikiki was once a playground for Hawaiian royalty. Known in Hawaiian as "spouting waters", Waikiki was introduced to the world when its first hotel, the Moana Surfrider, was built on its shores in 1901.




Those of you who followed through our adventure in Hawaii, will remember Duke Kahanamoku, aka the father of surf. He grew up surfing the waves of Waikiki and actually taught visitors how to surf at the turn of the century . Today, the Waikiki Beach Boys perpetuate Duke’s legacy by teaching visitors how to surf and canoe and the Duke Kahanamoku Statue has become an iconic symbol of Waikiki.



You can surf, swim, snorkel, stand-up paddle & find amazing things - like green sea turtles!





Obviously, there is sun too. In Xmas time, what could be beat a Santa Serenata?



Meanwhile, peep at Diamond Head and wonder about his concrete heart. What's hiding inside?



Nope, it isn't cushions!




Yeah. It happens to be one of those places you don't wanna leave.
