Waikiki Beach in Oahu

Framed by Diamond Head, one of the world’s most climbed (extinct) volcanoes, and with nearly two miles of continuous white sand and palm trees, this iconic beach is almost always full of tourists and surfers. It is deepest, about 100 feet, in front of the bright pink Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The bathtub-temperature turquoise water is ideal for swimming, and waves are usually gentle. One of the safest spots is near the shallow section in front of the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa, where even non-swimmers can feel comfortable venturing far from shore for a view of the beach—and Diamond Head—from the water.
