Waikiki AREA IV – Quiet End of Town

The quieter east side of Waikiki by the rock wall extending to the “Gold Coast” local strip, close to Kapiolani Park and Diamond Head.

  • Home to Kuhio Beach Park featuring a rock wall that creates a protected ocean pool (ideal for kids)
  • This is where locals come to swim because these far east beaches are less frequented
  • Kapiolani Park, Honolulu’s “central park”, is on your doorstep
  • The location of Honolulu Zoo and Waikiki Aquarium, family-friendly attractions
  • Home of the Waikiki Natatorium War Memorial, once an ocean water public swimming pool (sadly, now dilapidated)
  • Waikiki’s hostels are close together around Lemon Road
  • Hula’s, Waikiki’s most well-known gay bar and an excellent spot for dancing daily from 9pm!
  • Walking distance to Monsarrat Avenue, a trendy local street with tonnes of eateries and boutiques
  • Direct access to Kapahulu Avenue, nicknamed the “foodie street” with fantastic local eats
  • You’ll find quite a few food trucks dotted around this area
  • Awesome fine dining restaurants along the “Gold Coast” including Hau Tree and Michel’s at the Colony Surf
