  I'm looking like a lobster on Waikiki
by AKtravelers

If your coming from non-tropical latitudes during your winter, be careful of the sun on Oahu. It is strong all year round and is amplified by the ubiquitous sand and water. It is very easy to quickly turn into a bright red lobster and fail to enjoy the rest of your trip. If you are the burning type, wear lots of sunscreen and make sure you cover all your skin (I always end up with interesting red patterns on my back).
