Waikiki is located in Honolulu County. This famous Oahu Island landmark is 3.5 miles from Honolulu. It is bordered by the Pacific on the south and the Ala Wai Canal on the north. On the east side is Diamond Head and the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor on the west.
It is 2.5 miles along the sea on the sunny side of the island. There are about 130 hotels and condos with more than 33,000 rooms in Waikiki. Because of its size, it is easier to walk around Waikiki than to drive the one way streets and park.
