The last day we were in Hawaii, we decided to visit Waikiki Beach. Everyone has talked about how beautiful it was there and since we have spent so much time on the North Shore, we decided to branch out on the last day. Arriving in Waikiki is like driving downtown. You start seeing soaring skyscrapers, parking decks, and crowds of people. It was nothing like I had expected. The Hotels were lined up along the beach front, strip malls lined the opposite side of the street, and the beach access was in between the hotels and buildings. There really wasn't much beach to see. Where there was sand, there were tons of people. It was not like the North Shore at all. The North Shore had just endless beaches as far as the eye could see. Even on a crowded day, the beaches would be very spacious. We did however, find a great little noodle place to eat lunch at. Spending the day in Waikiki was like spending the day at the outlet malls in Florida. Not to say it was a bad place, just not what I was looking for.
God of Surfing?!
A little too crowded for me to relax
The sand was only like 2 inches deep
Umbrellas as far as the eye could see
How do you surf without hitting someone?
The view is totally different on the North Shore
This is not what I imagine when I think of beach bronzed bodies in skimpy bathing suits!
Nice hotels though
Don't ask! I had to jump in her arms!
