Plan a Girls’ Trip to Waikiki

Girls Trip - Sunset in Hawaii

When you’re feeling like ditching the daily grind for some much-needed time with your girls, it’s time to head to Waikiki! This iconic Hawaiian destination offers up all the things you need for a fun girls’ trip – sun, sand and seriously good vibes. So grab your besties and start planning an amazing girls’ trip to Waikiki!

Hit the beach. Waikiki Beach is the definition of paradise, with powdery white sands and crystal-clear waters. Grab your swimsuits, put on that sunscreen, and get ready for fun in the Hawaiian sun. Vendors along the beach are selling everything from snacks to beach gear, and you are always a short walk away from Waikiki’s shops and restaurants. You can find a lively atmosphere and prime people watching off Kalakaua Avenue by the Duke Kahanamoku statue, or enjoy a calmer ambiance and shaded spots further down at Queen Beach. Wherever you choose to set up your beach gear, you are sure to have a great time at Waikiki’s beaches.

Hang ten. Channel your inner surfer girl with surfing lessons on Waikiki Beach. Even if you’re a total newbie, there’s no better place to catch some waves than this legendary surf break. Experienced instructors will teach you the basics, from paddling out to popping up, and get you ready to ride the waves. This empowering experience is a great group activity and you can bet you’ll have some epic photos to share!

Take a hike. You could spend days just exploring the amazing hikes on the island of Oahu. But if you have time for only one hike, head to the iconic Diamond Head. This moderately strenuous hike around the edge of a volcanic crater is very close to Waikiki, takes about 2 hours and offers incredible views of Honolulu and the coastline. Koko Head is another popular hike nearby with an intense stairway leading to amazing views. If you want to venture further outside of Waikiki, try one of these iconic hikes for an unforgettable adventure with the girls.

Take a tour. Level up your girls’ trip with a boat tour or catamaran cruise. Set sail on the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean and bask in the beauty of Waikiki’s coastline from a whole new perspective. Spot whales, dolphins and sea turtles in their natural habitat, explore the underwater world on a snorkeling tour, or sip cocktails at sunset and snap group selfies against the backdrop of Diamond Head. 

Spa day. Treat yourselves to a day of pampering and relaxation at one of Waikiki’s luxurious spas. Unwind with indulgent massages and rejuvenating facials while you let your cares melt away in serene tropical surroundings. Whether you opt for traditional Hawaiian therapies or modern wellness rituals, a spa day is the perfect way to recharge and connect with your girls.
