Aloha Surf Waikiki is located just down Kanekapolei Street/Ka'iulani Avenue from one of the main shopping areas in downtown Waikiki, which includes the Waikiki Shopping Plaza, the International Market Place, the Waikiki Business Plaza, and the entirety of Kalakaua Avenue. This is all within a 5-minute walk of Aloha Surf Waikiki, meaning guests of this condotel will have extremely convenient access to some of the most popular shopping spots within a couple of miles. Included within these shopping centers are local stores and shops, designer boutiques, fast-fashion chain stores, and numerous great restaurants. More of these can be found lining Kalakaua Avenue.
For those more interested in visiting nearby beaches, Aloha Surf Waikiki is located just a 7-minute walk from one of the most popular and well-known beaches in Hawai'i- Waikiki Beach. This is a great spot for swimming, water sports like surfing, bodyboarding, and paddle boarding, plus activities like sunbathing and spending time with friends and family. If you ever feel the need for food or a drink, there are restaurants, cafés, and food trucks/stands positioned all around the area for your convenient access. Contrastingly, a 6-minute drive from Aloha Surf Waikiki is Fort DeRussy Beach, which is significantly wider than Waikiki Beach and backed by a decently large park. It also tends to be less crowded than Waikiki Beach, which makes this a nice option for those who want to enjoy the Hawaiian sun and sand but want to avoid the incredibly congested area of Waikiki Beach.
Down Kuhio Avenue in the opposite direction will bring you to other popular spots like the Honolulu Zoo on Kapahulu Avenue, Kapi'olani Regional Park adjacent to the zoo, and the famous Diamond Head Crater Hike just a short drive further. From Aloha Surf Waikiki, these three locations sit a 4-, 5-, and 14-minute drive away respectively.
In the opposite direction, the Ala Moana Center is another incredibly popular shopping center (and the largest open-air shopping center in the world), which is just a 7-minute drive away and includes hundreds of more stores and restaurants. For more outdoor activities, Ala Moana Beach Park is directly across Ala Moana Boulevard from the Ala Moana Center, and includes Ala Moana Beach, a large park for outdoor sports, playing with pets, exercising, picnicking, etc., the Ala Moana Tennis Courts, and a beach volleyball court.
