Duration: 1 hour. Amazing view. Warm waters. Calm waves.

Whether you're a paddle boarding enthusiast or it's your first time, this spot is perfect! The waves are nice and calm allowing for a relaxing time. This area is away from the main part of Waikiki so you'll still get the beautiful view of Diamond Head without the large crowd of people. You'll also be able to maneuver your paddle board without fear of hitting a swimmer. Get there early to beat the crowds and grab breakfast afterwards for a very relaxing morning.

If you need to rent a paddle board I recommend Koa Beach Rentals. You can check out their pricing and they offer military discount to those retired or active.
