It’s been a while, but rather late than never. Waikiki was a welcome surprise. We did it because we though we have to go since we are in Hawaii, not expecting much more than a tourist frenzy. It was great. There is a great vibe. Everyone is relaxed and laid back. the waves were perfect for us and the kids and they had loads of fun waking through the international centre to the beach about 5 times a day. We learned the bus system and got out and about to Pearl Harbour, neighbouring beaches and of cause to climb Diamond Head, which we took turns to do early morning before sunset, while the kids were sleeping. That in itself was a wonder as our kids is normally up at 5am.
