Waikiki Beach History
Waikiki Beach is one of Hawaii’s most storied destinations. A royal Hawaiian retreat since the 1800s, Waikiki Beach has welcomed many noteworthy guests, including author Robert Louis Stevenson. There have even been a few hotels there since the 1880s, when Waikiki Beach emerged as one of the first surfing hot spots. A sport of kings in Hawaii, surfing took place on primitive forms of longboards. Today, Waikiki Beach is still one of Honolulu’s most spectacular beaches and a not-to-be-missed destination.
