See fish in Waikiki without getting wet!
Posted by Unknown | Tuesday, April 15, 2014

One of my favorite spots to walk in Waikiki is along the path that runs along the shore line behind the Waikiki Aquarium.  It's a Marine Conservation Area so no fishing is allowed, therefore allowing the fish to grow really big so that they can be seen just looking into the water from the cement walkway.

It's just before the Natatorium and San Souci Beach, and across from Kapiolani Park.  The path runs past the Barefoot Beach Cafe, which serves Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.  This is the sign you will see just before the Aquarium so that you know you are in the right spot to see the fish:

For those staying at our Waikiki Vacation Rentals at the Cabana at Waikiki, the Waikiki Banyan, the Waikiki Sunset, the Foster Tower, the Seaside, or many others, then you are just a short walk away.  Our units at the Royal Kuhio, the Royal Moana, the Regency on Beachwalk, and others are just a short drive away, coming down Kalakaua Avenue to Kapiolani Park.  Parking meters are just $.50 per hour!
This is what the walkway looks like when you are walking towards Diamond Head and San Souci beach:

That's where you want to look straight out to the ocean and look down to see all the colorful fish like our state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa.  I saw huge green parrot fish and skinny needle fish as well as yellow tangs.  It's a great family friendly, free Oahu activity to enjoy without having to leave Waikiki. You will see fish just like at Hanauma Bay but you don't need to learn to swim or even get wet!  It's just past the Honolulu Zoo, too, so you can check out the underwater life while you are out to view the land animals!
