When people think of Hawaii, it is often Waikiki Beach,
Pearl Harbor and Sunset beach that come to mind.

Hawaii is famous for her winter waves and there is no other place in the world like the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Surfers from all parts of the world gather in Hawaii each year to ride the BIG waves at Sunset Beach, Pipeline and Waimea. Spectators, photographers and locals alike swarm the beaches during the winter swells that Mother Nature brings to Hawaii each year, just to get a glimpse of the magnificent waves found no where else in the world. When the waves are really rolling they can reach heights of 20 to 30 feet, providing the challenge that Professional surfers seem to live for, the BIG waves. But that's not all, be sure to visit Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona and Honolulu, the only major city in Hawaii. Oahu is the main island and Honolulu International Airport is where most inbound flights arrive. When people think of Hawaii, it is often Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor and Sunset beach that come to mind. Enjoy your Hawaii Vacation.

Waikiki Beach
As seen in the photo below, taken by local photographer Jenny W. of Honolulu, Hawaii, Waikiki Beach is one of the nicest beaches in all of Hawaii. The backdrop to Waikiki is scenic Diamond Head, the mountain on the left in the photograph. Diamond Head is so dominant that the Islander's refer to head east as, "go Diamond Head".
Once Hawaii's only visitors' destination
Waikiki is now among the top places to visit in the entire world. Waikiki doesn't get the waves that the North Shore does but that's okay, because there is plenty to do in Waikiki. Whether you soak up the sun, take a walk on her white sandy beach, go shopping, or indulge in the fine food and spirits, there is always something going on in Waikiki.
