Waikiki Beach is a wonderful holiday destination, complete with luxurious beach front hotels, wonderful food, warm weather year round and great shopping. There really is something to please every traveler. I’ve just returned from my first visit and it won’t be my last!
If you want to escape busy Waikiki there are plenty of options. It’s simple to hire a car and drive around the island, stopping off at some of the stunningly beautiful and less visited beaches. The beaches along the east coast are particularly beautiful, like Lanikai which makes a regular appearance on the list of best Hawaiian Beaches. Make sure you head up to the North Shore where the winter swell is massive and don’t forget to stop off for a delicious lunch at one or the many shrimp trucks. Giovanni’s is particularly good and their garlic shrimp is to die for!
Another must visit for history buffs is the Pearl Harbour Visitor Centre and USS Arizona Memorial. The museum is really interesting and a sombre reminder of the events of December 1941 . A boat trip takes you over to the USS Arizona Memorial built over the top of the sunken ship which is still leaking oil to this day!
