Located on the west side of Diamond Head, and on the east side of Waikiki Beach is where you’ll find Kapiolani Park. The name of this park comes from the Queen of Hawaii, Kapiolani, and provides a surprisingly relaxed atmosphere even though it is right next to the always busy Waikiki Beach.

Recharge at Kapiolani Park
When you are staying in Waikiki, it is exciting because you are surrounded by gigantic luxurious hotels, boutiques, and restaurants. However, after awhile, it can be little stressful and tiring. If you are staying in Waikiki and need a little break, why don’t you take a moment or two at Kapiolani Park to recharge yourself, and don’t forget to stop by and greet the lovely statue of Queen Kapiolani
As a tourist, you are most likely to engage with many other tourists, or those who work in the tourism industry, but at Kapiolani Park you will run into the natives of Hawaii who are simply walking, running, or doing yoga at the park enjoying the beauty of Hawaii. Yes, shopping and fine dining is exciting when you are traveling, but make sure to take a moment or two to stop by this beautiful park right next to Waikiki Beach.
