Hawaii has too many incredible beaches to visit in one lifetime, so let us be your guide.

Waikiki Beach, Oahu

1 of 20

Travelers have been flocking to this calm, golden, crescent-shaped stretch of sand on the island of Oahu since the early 1900s—when Hawaii first popped up on the tourist radar, and visitors would arrive only by steamship. Today, it’s a bit more crowded, but the scene is still fun: grab a mai tai at the iconic Royal Hawaiian hotel, built in 1927; kick back; and watch locals mingle with tourists, all with impressive Diamond Head as a backdrop.
