I spent some time vacationing in Hawaii last summer and absolutely loved it!! Though Maui was my favorite, I still enjoyed Oahu. My first morning there I was wide awake by 6am due to jet lag. One friend was heading to work and the other hadn’t gotten in yet, so I explored Honolulu and Waikiki Beach by myself before crowds of tourists took over. Everything was quiet and calm, definitely one of the more relaxing parts of my trip!
So if you are looking to avoid the crowds at Waikiki Beach you don’t have to go far-you just have to wake up early!
