Kalakaua Avenue.

By James Kellow

It’s hard to stroll the famous Waikiki strip without stopping to make a purchase or three.

Kalakaua Avenue
Waikiki, Oahu

It’s the main road in Waikiki, and it’s commonly referred to as the ‘Waikiki Strip’. Lined with luxury hotels, restaurants and every kind of shopping option imaginable, this famous street connects the Ala Moana Beach Park area to Kapiolani Park, and puts on a stunning fireworks display every Friday night. It’s a great way to start the weekend – with an almighty bang.
