Beyond the main pool lies an intimate stretch of sandy beach. During low tide, guests and families may sunbathe on the sand and enjoy the gentle saltwater waves. High tide however, brings waves over the beach area fronting the hotel and guests are recommended to walk over to adjacent beach areas a few steps away.
GENERAL SEASONAL SURF CONDITIONS
The summer months bring bigger surf to Waikiki. The water is usually calm and the surf ranges from 1-3 ft. There are occasional 4-6 ft swells. The winter months bring very calm conditions, and the surf is usually smaller; usually not rising above 2ft. Please check all surf conditions with the Waikiki Beach Lifeguards should you have any questions.
