Waikiki from Queen's Surf Beach Groyne - Oahu visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Waikiki from Queen's Surf Beach Groyne' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Hawaii.
A groin stretches out into the sea separating Queens Surf Beach and Kapiolani Beach. Both these beaches are south of Waikiki Beach in the Waikiki area of Honolulu on Oahu island in Hawai'i. South of Queen's Surf Beach is Kaimana Beach and then the coastline is built up towards Diamond Head.
Because both these beaches are not on the doorstep of the hotels, these 2 beaches tend to be a little quieter than those nearer the heart of Waikiki. Behind these two beaches is Kapiolani Beach Park, which leads onto Kapiolani Regional Park. The edge of the Waikiki hotels to the north is marked by Kapahulu Groin. Beyond this lies Kuiho Beach (Prince Kuhio Beach Park) and then Waikiki Beach.
The nearest hotels north of Queens Beach include the Renew, Park Shore Waikiki Hotel, Waikiki Beach Hotel, Waikiki Grand, Queen Kapiolani. At the other end of Kapiolani Beach Park, to the south, are New Otani Hotel, Diamond Head Hotel and "W" Honolulu Hotel.
