Beaches Tips (21)

KUHIO BEACH

WAIKIKI BEACH has nearly 1.5 miles of beach. KUHIO BEACH is one of a series of beaches that make up Waikiki Beach.
Surfing gained widespread popularity in the early 1900's after the formation of the Outrigger Canoe Club and the Hui Nalu swim club. Hui Nalu members became the first beachboys and began teaching tourists to surf and paddle outrigger canoes --- services that visitors still find on the beach today.
Among Hui Nalu's founding members was Duke Paoa Kahanamoku, a statue of whom is on Kuhio Beach, welcoming all to Waikiki and the ocean he loved so dearly.

Waikiki Beach

Enjoy the day at the beach, relax and stay for the beautiful sunset. After you can see the torch lighter running to light the torches on the Waikiki strip.Watch out there is some coral or something hard at some parts of the water, which can hurt your feet.

Beach Combing

The main reason you are going to be heading to Waikiki is to see the beach scene. Whether going out and running through the sand is your thing, or if you prefer to sit in a bar and watch the other swimmers, you will have alot of fun people watching!

Take a walk along Waikiki Beach

Did you know that the sand on Waikiki Beach comes from Stockton, Australia? I drive past the Stockton sand dunes every day on the way to work.

It felt like they were cheating....Having one of the most famous beaches in the world and it's not even real!!

Never mind, the sand was lovely and clean and great to walk on. Just make sure you don't trip over people or boat rigging as you walk along the beach. It's not easy to dodge all the obstacles.

Parasailing

If you are into something that gets your pulse rate going a little more than lazing on the beach, you can go parasailing.

I didn't actually go, but one day I saw these spots on the horizon and couldn't work out what they were. A large bird, helicopter? Then as they came into focus, I noticed it was some thrill seekers being pulled along behind a boat with a parachute. Too energetic for me :o)

Go Surfing

Surfing on Waikiki beach is kinda one of those things you just have to do. Unfortunately I had a little to much sun the previous day, and didn't want to risk anymore. Sun doesn't agree with me in large doses, and coming from Australia, I know the damage it can do. So I sat on the beach while my friends hired Malibu's and caught some waves.

Waikiki beach is perfect for beginners. The waves are small and very consistant. If you manage to catch one, you can ride it for ages.

Malibu hire was $10 per hour.

Waikiki Beach

7 Feb 04 2045

Today I spent the day on the beach reading 'The Orchid Thief'. It's not really my type of book, but since it's for my bookclub I have perservered.

I managed to find a nice spot in the shade on the grass, rather than in the sand. There is nothing worse than getting sand through everything. Despite the large number of people at the beach, I didn't really feel too crowded, and managed to have a nice relaxing day.

Hint: Buy yourself one of the cane mats that are for sale at all the ABC shops. Very cheap and great to sit on.

Black lava rocks

Hawaii was formed by the volcanoes.

We did get to climb Diamondhead this time.

This is a picture of the lava rocks in the sandy beach.
