|View of Waikiki|
When we started planning our long overdue honeymoon, a few of our friends and co-workers told us that Oahu was the less Hawaiian of the 8 archipelago islands. Why is that - we asked. Well apparently is because of the famous Waikiki, the busy and modern beach area of Honolulu, Hawaiian capital city.
It is indeed modern, with a lot of hotels, restaurants, stores and popular hang out places for tourists: Senor Frogs, Margaritaville, Hard Rock Cafe and many others. It is often compared to Miami Beach in South Florida, due to its crowds of curious tourists that fill the known hotels like the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach (home to the Hula Grill restaurant) and the very expensive and exclusive Halekulani, where a lot of Hollywood stars stay. Honestly, we don’t know what the fuzz is about this hotel, aside from its security, since it is very simple. It is beautiful, but we found that it was very simple. However, it has one of the best places for brunch on Sundays and to watch the sunset every night, the House Without a Key bar.
