Waikiki Beach Attractions

Have Fun Exploring Hawaii & the Beach

Aloha! Welcome to Hawaii, the 50th state. Hawaii is known as the “island of paradise” for good reason. Located nearly 4,000 miles off the west coast of the United States, it is the only U.S. state that is located in Oceania and the only actual island state. Comprised of eight main islands, the Hilton Garden Inn Waikiki Beach is located on the island of Oahu and is only a few miles away from the capital city of Honolulu. With stunning tropical beaches and a plethora of outdoor activities, such as surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, biking, hiking, and more leisurely pursuits like sightseeing and sunbathing, Waikiki truly has something for everyone. The Hilton Garden Inn Waikiki Beach is the perfect home base for visitors to the islands who are looking for a central destination where they can kick off their shoes and soak in the paradise sun.
