Which are the best bars on the beach?
Koa Oasis Booze Shack is known to be “the closest beer to the beach,” because it’s literally right across the boardwalk from the beach.
Also, a stone’s throw away there is The Steak Shack, which has $9+ steak plates.
FYI, this area is also a prime location for watching Friday night fireworks at 7:45 pm, although the Steak Shack I mentioned above closes at 7:00 pm.
Don’t forget Dukes. If you get a table outside downstairs you are literally on the beach. One of my first nights in Waikiki was drinking a Mai Tai and 3 meters away watching surfers washing down their surf boards. I mean … come on! So cliche - so cool! So Hawaii!
