Waikiki Beach

Waikiki's first hotel, the Moana Surfrider, was built here in 1901, and today the area has grown into Oahu's main resort strip, famous for beaches and calm waters perfect for novice surfers. Heck, legendary Hawaiian waterman Duke Kahanamoku grew up riding these waves, so you know they're good. It gets crowded (the perils of popularity), but it's worth soaking up the vibe here, especially at sunset, when Kalakaua Avenue, Waikiki's beachfront drag, comes alive with sundowners and live music.
