Waikiki Beach, the most famous in Hawaii:
Waikiki is a district of the city of Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, in Hawaii, one of the United States of America. Waikiki is the area of Honolulu bounded by the Ala Wai Canal to the north and east, Kapahulu Ave. to the south and the Pacific Ocean to the west.
One of the best known beach in the world, Waikiki was the favorite playground of Hawaiian royalty in the 19th century. At the time, Waikiki was an area of wetlands fed by streams from the valleys above Honolulu. That all changed in the 1920s when the government decided to build what would become the Ala Wai Canal, which would drain the wetlands and pave the way for later development.
These days, this 1.5 mile stretch of white sand beach is the nucleus of Hawaii's tourist industry, packed full of high-rise hotels that promise to treat you like a king, some of which may also require a king's ransom for admission. Often criticized for its concrete-jungle appearance, Waikiki has undergone a recent face lift to give it a more "Hawaiian sense of place."
