Things to Do in Waikiki for a Day | Waikiki Beach has never been more fun

Feeling stuck on #Waikiki Beach? Probably not, but if you are looking for some fun then check out our favorite things to do in Waikiki for a perfect day on the beach.

Erica, Henry, and I took a day from sightseeing Oahu and Honolulu to get to know Waikiki Beach better. We found the best coffee shops in Waikiki, watched the surfers on Waikiki Beach, and then tried our hand at surfing the famous Waikiki break. I’m a horrible surfer but Waikiki Beach has a great break for a beginner.
