Tons of hotels around so you can walk to it. Wasn't too crowded. You can rent beach loungers for $12 for the day as well as other things. No waves when we were there.

One of the world's most overrated beaches. It was crowded, narrow and surrounded by too much concrete. A should-go if you're in Honolulu but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

Great place to relax and enjoy the ocean. Can be busy but worth getting a spot and staying there all day. Activities galore if you need them

Wear sunscreen. Sun is wonderful. Especially if you are from Illinois in the winter. Beach is beautiful. Lots of activities. Some can be costly. Nice to walk at night.

Not sure if your trip is over, but we find the pool bar overlooking the ocean at the Westin Hotel is simply stunning. If you venture up to the north shore, the sunsets are spectacular .
