The beach on this side of Waikiki is much bigger than in the middle of Waikiki so there's more room to spread out. There's also a pier to jump into the water and kids area that is shielded from the big waves right next to the pier. All this is directly across the street.

The name of the building is Waikiki Grand and each unit is individually owned and none of the units look alike on the inside. The building is located right on the edge of Waikiki and what is called The Gold Coast. The Gold Coast is essentially where all the local go when they say they are going to Waikiki. Theres a great beach there called Kaimana beach, it's great for playing and for swimming. Theres a flag that a lot of people swim to that is about 1/8 a mile away. You'll see fish and turtles on on you swim to the flag and back.

Across the street from the building is the zoo and you can see Flamingos from the rooms lanai. There's a Starbucks, Teddy's Bigger Burger, ABC store all right as you walk out the building. I really enjoy eating a a place called Tucker & Bevy.

If you are a runner there's a place the you can jog around Kapiolani Park, it's a little over one mile if you go all around it. Now, if you want a longer run you can run with hills you can run around Diamond Head which is a little of 3.2 miles.

Chess players usually meet on the beach nearby and play speed games. I've never played but they look serious.

Foodies- Great restaurants are always entering the market in Waikiki and it's surrounding areas. Dukes is a staple and will most likely always be around, but there plenty of other awesome ones that you can find on Yelp. Yelp will have all the latest and most accurate information on restaurants, if you don't like Yelp then just do a search for restaurants and you'll learn something great.

I strongly recommend you take surf lessons, try canoe surfing which is very easy, and do the sunset sail. These are activities that people that live here still do, very memorable and relaxing activities.

Guest access
Public balcony on the 10th floor which boasts some of the most beautiful views of Waikiki.
Laundry room on bottom floor.
Pool
Public piano in lobby.

Other things to note
Sometimes there's movies on the beach across the street. Every Friday night fireworks go off in Waikiki.
