Many of Hawaii’s alii (royalty) lived in Waikiki and King Kalakaua selected a 300-acre track of land at the base of Diamond Head for a public park in 1867. Today, it is a gathering place that thrives with walkers, runners, tennis enthusiasts and picnickers. Grab lunch on Kalakaua Avenue and enjoy it in one of the shaded picnic areas scattered around this colorful park.

I went out in the morning from the hotel and walked around the park. Very peaceful in the morning and good views of the ocean, too. There are some homeless so stay alert.

This is my favorite beach park in Waikiki for a number of reasons. One big reason is the very nice grass and trees that provide shade when it's hot outside. Bring a couple of chairs and sit on the grass under a nice shade tree...More

There are a lot of places you can ask about schedules of events. But the front desk of your hotel should have some of that information and they usually had booklets about the many different tours, etc.

You will find a few fish around here but nothing terribly exciting. If it's snorkeling you're after - sign up with a private tour (we used OPT) where local guides take you to the best snorkeling places around the island... More
