Top 5 favorite Hawaii family-fun beaches: HAWAII Magazine Facebook poll results


No. 1

Waikiki Beach (Oahu)

Favorite Hawaii beach with something for everyone in the entire family? How could the visitors that continue to hold up Waikiki as the state’s vacation Mecca be wrong? With its typically gentle and long-lasting wave break, the waters here are perfect for learning how to stand up on a surfboard or help paddle an outrigger canoe. While much of daily water-sports activity takes place near the Duke Kahanamoku statue, the best view of Diamond Head Crater is on the sand edging the pink Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The Waikiki beach area also includes Fort DeRussy Beach, Kuhio Beach, and Queen Surf Beach. For more information about Waikiki Beach, click here.
