Minutes away from Waikiki is Oahu's east shore which features one of Hawaii's most dramatic stretches of coastline. The east shore is a step away from the lively atmosphere of Waikiki and a step towards a more laid back tropical experience. Hanauma Bay is located on the east shore and is one of the world's best known marine sanctuaries. To the north of Hanauma Bay is the popular Sandy Beach which is an ideal place for snorkeling, kayaking and skim-boarding because of its calm waters all year long.
