Posted by Unknown | Thursday, August 28, 2014

The annual Waikiki Roughwater Swimming competition takes place this Labor Day, September 1st, in Waikiki near our vacation rentals.  It's a 2.348 mile open water swim that has been named one of the top 100 open water swim races in the world.

If you are staying at our vacation rentals at the Cabana at Waikiki, the Waikiki Banyan, or the Waikiki Sunset then you are just a short 10-15 minute walk from all the action.  If you are staying at any of our other properties there is metered parking around the park across the street from the beach or it's just a short trip on the city bus #19 from Kuhio Avenue.

The starting line is at Kaimana Beach which is just past the Waikiki Aquarium and the Waikiki Zoo.  There will be staggered starts starting at 8:30 a.m.  The finish is at Duke Kahanamoku beach in front of Hilton lagoon.  The entry fee is $100 cash only.

There will be hundreds of swimmers of all ages in this family friendly event.  There are competitors coming in from all around the globe so maybe you will make some new friends in new countries!  So bring the gang down and check it out!  It's a great stop on your way to a Diamond Head Hike or the aquarium or zoo or just a picnic at the beach!
