Waikiki Beach has a spectacular two mile long run down the coast. All along this stretch, you will see four wonderful hotels, including the Sheraton Moana Surfrider, which has been around since 1901, when the first large tourist hotels came to the area. Around these Hotels, you will find most guests taking advantage of what the beach has to offer. More importantly, this is also where you will find the surfing waves that Waikiki Beach is famous for! But regardless of how you want to pass the time, the concessionaires along the beach will have something for you to do, from renting surfboards, to outrigger canoe and catamaran rides. Just remember, that during the summer months Waikiki Beach experiences very high surfs, which can be dangerous to the inexperienced swimmer. So stay close to the shore, and mind the Lifeguards!
Waikiki Beach Hotels
Waikiki Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world. Its warm waters and rolling surf have been attracting large numbers of visitors since 1901, when the first large tourist hotel, the Moana, opened for business. The Moana is still standing today (now named the Sheraton Moana Surfrider Hotel), plus there are many Waikiki vacation rental condos to stay in and the Waikiki resort area has grown around it to include approximately three square miles of hotels, condominiums, and shopping centers, bordered on the east by Diamond Head, on the north and west by the Ala Wai Canal, and on the south by Waikiki Beach.
Although Waikiki Beach seems immense, it is separated into beach sections that are named after the hotels or parks that are across from it, which makes finding your way around very easy. Before the area around the beach was developed, it was surrounded by springs, ponds and marshes, that gave it the name Waikiki, which means sprouting water.
