Stop 11: Kuhio Beach
Just a few hundred meters from Waikiki Beach, Kuhio Beach Park offers a more relaxing place to enjoy the sun and sand.
The first two pictures here are general views looking back towards Waikiki and the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, which we saw at the previous stop.
Many of the locals keep their surf boards at the beach, just in case they can "catch a wave" after work!
One of the interesting differences between Waikiki and the rest of Oahu is the local police "car", seen here on the main street in Waikiki (Kalakaua Avenue).
The statue in this, and the following picuture, is of one of the most famous local people of Waikiki -- Duke Kahanamoku. A former Olympic swimmer, Duke pioneered several surf riding techniques at Waikiki Beach.
As we walk to the eastern end of Kuhio Beach, we enter Kapiolani Park, which is where we will be at Stop 12 . Diamond Head is in the background.
From here you can continue on to Stop 12.
