Never has a beach been as legendary as Waikiki. Having been a tourist destination extraordinaire since the 1950s, this beach is a perfect crescent filled with glassy, turquoise waters. The beach is a crownjewel of the eponymous neighborhood, its gleaming white sand reveling coyly under the grace of the scorching Hawaiian sun. Having braved many ravages of time, the beach today lies nestled in stark contrast with soaring high-rises that fringe it. Come night, the hipsters strut their clubwear on the beachwalk, and lovers find peaceful little nooks under the cover of swaying palm trees. Affording scenic views of the Diamond Head, the beach exists quite in tandem with Hawaii's laid-back spirit.
