Waikiki is a beachfront neighborhood in Honolulu, on Hawaii’s south shore island of Oahu. It is most famous for Waikiki Beach, with its miles of sparkling white sand. Today, Waikiki’s skyline is dotted with high-rise buildings and many resort hotels, but it has a rich history. Before the beach became a popular place for tourists, it was a retreat for Hawaiian royalty, who enjoyed surfing on longboards. These boards were eventually copied by non-natives, which gave rise to the popularity of surfing. Hotels began to dot the beach by the 1880s, and since then, a number of famous hotel and resort chains have opened their doors here. Book Hawaii tours now and get 10% Off.
