Waikiki's best beach bar is right on an especially lovely stretch of beach. The atmosphere comes from the historic Moana Surfrider hotel and its vast banyan tree. The people-watching of passersby, sunbathers and surfers is captivating day and night. On an island of mediocre mai tais, the version here is one of Oʻahu's best. Although it's always busy, turnover is quick so you won't wait long for a table. There's live entertainment much of the day.
