Kahaloa & Ulukou Beaches information
The beach between the Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider hotels is Waikiki’s busiest section of sand and surf, great for sunbathing, swimming and people-watching. Most of the beach has a shallow bottom with a gradual slope. The only drawback for swimmers is its popularity with beginning surfers, and the occasional catamaran landing hazard. Queens and Canoes, Waikiki’s best-known surf breaks, are just offshore. Paddle further offshore over a lagoon to Populars (aka ‘Pops’), a favorite of long-boarders.
