Waikiki News and Events

GoHawaii.com Oahu Islands:
Waikiki Beach Hawaii
The Duke Kahanamoku Statue welcomes you to one of the most popular beaches in the world. Waikiki Beach is host to more than 4 million visitors every year and boasts famous views of Diamond Head (Leahi). Thanks to its small but long-lasting wave break, this is one of the best places in Hawaii to learn how to surf or paddle a canoe. Waikiki is actually made of a few beaches including Fort DeRussy Beach to the west, Waikiki Beach (fronting the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and Westin Moana Surfrider), Kuhio Beach (along Kalakaua Avenue) and Queen Surf Beach, home to quieter stretches on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki.

Waikiki Aquarium Site:
Information for Visitors Have you ever looked into the eye of a zebra shark? Seen an octopus opening a jar? Or met the real-life versions of Dori and Nemo? Located next to a living coral reef, the award winning Waikiki Aquarium brings guests face-to-fin with colorful tropical fish, reef sharks, living corals, endangered Hawaiian monk seals, sea jellies, squid, octopus and more!

Duke's Waikiki:
Memorable Dining on the Sands of Waikiki Beach
Duke's Waikiki, named in honor of surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku, is a seafood restaurant where great tasting food and the aura of old Hawaii are the fashion. Located oceanfront at the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel, the restaurant and Barefoot Bar are popular spots for beachboys (and beachgirls), locals and visitors alike.

Duke's Waikiki is located right on the site of the original Outrigger Canoe Club, overlooking the spot where Duke rode the biggest wave of his life.

The restaurant is reminiscent of a gentler and younger Waikiki, when canoeing and surfing were in their heyday, beachboys ruled, and Duke was the undisputed "king of the ocean". A virtual museum, Duke's features an extensive collection of Duke memorabilia, including framed photographs, a koa outrigger canoe, surfboards, and old Hawaiian posters. The decor adds to the overall ambiance, with palm-thatched roofs and umbrellas, rich koa wood paneling, touches of bamboo and lauhala, and a salt-water aquarium.

No visit to Hawaii is complete without a visit to Duke's, where you can enjoy a relaxing breakfast, leisurely lunch, romantic dinner, or tropical cocktail with live Hawaiian entertainment - all in the spirit of old Waikiki, all in the spirit of Duke.
