** Stayed at the Hotel La Croix.
We could not have been happier with our choice of lodging. The hotel was in a super walkable spot, both to the beach and downtown. Our balcony was giant and had a great view – one of our favorite afternoons was spent napping on it! The staff was lovely, plus our stay came with a ton of local goodies, including leis!** Visited several Japanese food halls.
** Walked up and down Waikiki.
This was the closest beach to our hotel and we visited it for both morning and sunset.
