Kahaloa & Ulukou Beaches information
The generous stretch of 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 the beach’s popularity with beginning surfers, and the occasional catamaran landing hazard.
Queens and Canoes , Waikiki’s best-known surf breaks, are just offshore, and on a good day there can be hundreds of surfers lined up on the horizon waiting to catch a wave. Paddle further offshore over a lagoon to Populars (aka ‘Pops’), a favorite of long-boarders.
