Honolulu's legendary beaches of Waikiki

The Waikiki district of Hawaii's state capital and largest city Honolulu is best known for its storied sands. Once the first capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii, from 1795 to 1796, today it's an area of resorts (such as the Moana Surfrider and the legendary Royal Hawaiian) and a half dozen fine beaches - in addition to Waikiki Beach itself, there's Fort DeRussy Beach, Gray's Beach, Kahanamoku Beach, Kuhio Beach, and Queen's Beach - with a wide panoply of amenities and water sports, including surfing classes, of course. It's also home to Queen Kapi'olani Park; the unfenced, 111-year-old U.S. military base Fort DeRussy (home to the U.S. Army Museum); and Ala Wai Harbor, a marina for yachts and small boats.
