Duke's Waikiki information
It’s a crazy, tourist-filled scene, especially when weekend concerts by Henry Kapono, one of the biggest names in Hawaiian music, spill over onto the beach. Taking its name from Duke Kahanamoku, the surfing theme prevails throughout. Drunken souvenir-photo taking and vacation-land camaraderie are encouraged.
