  Waikiki Beach Scenes
by deecat

Favorite thing: Waikiki Beach in Honolulu on the Island called O'ahu is perhaps the world's most famous beach.

"Waikiki" in Hawaiian means "Sprouting Water". It is a two-mile stretch of white sand coast and is fronted by numerous high-rise hotels and other tourist facilities.

The beach is an excellent place for "people watching", walking, swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, using catamarans or outrigger canoes.

Thankfully, there are Lifeguards on duty to help protect the masses. There is a sand and reef area, picnic areas, concession stands, restrooms, snorkeling and body board rentals, showers, and phones.

Fondest memory: My fondest memory is walking the beach, staring out toward Diamond Head, and enjoying the diversity of the population on the beach--it is the United Nations of beaches.

I took the two photographs; one of a typical day at the beach; the second of a scantily clad (and beautiful) female sunbather. She was the object of attraction for many male beach patrons!
