Visitors come from around the world to Waikiki dreaming of those perfect, tropical waves famously reserved for Hawaiian royalty at aptly named Queens Beach. But beyond the surf, Waikiki has a full offering of activities and options for almost every kind of traveler.
Journey around the world with a glimpse via the Park Shore Waikiki live webcam link here – Come check out the current weather, waves and what’s new at the shoreline. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
Start your day with a sunrise hike at Diamond Head Monument. Then, enjoy a family outing to the Honolulu Zoo and a picnic in sprawling Kapiolani Park. After some beach time and dinner to satisfy any craving (sushi, pasta, burgers—it’s all here), sway into the evening along to live music at the Waikiki Shell.
On the next day, if you want to venture farther afield, just catch a shuttle to one of the many historical, cultural, and outdoor activities on Oahu, from Pearl Harbor to Iolani Palace to Hanauma Bay.
One hotel option that makes accessing all that Waikiki has to offer easy is the Park Shore Waikiki Hotel. Unlike some of the better known and more expensive resorts, this boutique hotel sits on the quiet east end of Waikiki’s main drag, Kalakaua Avenue, where it’s just steps from Kapiolani Park and the Honolulu Zoo, as well as Queens Beach and the Honolulu Aquarium.
Given its central location, one could say it offers some of the best of land and sea—or, as the name aptly suggests, park and shore.
In-hotel dining options include Lulu’s, an open air American eatery perfect for catching sports games, as well as Japanese restaurant Yoshitsune and picnic fare purveyor Tucker & Bevvy. There’s also a Starbucks on the ground floor (open 7 days a week) for your daily coffee and an ABC Store for quick snacks and gifts to bring back home to share a piece of your Hawaii vacation with family and friends.
With all that Waikiki has to offer, you’re going to want to stay for a while. Luckily, the Park Shore Waikiki offers every fifth night free on bookings of five nights or more.
