Dr. Beach came out with his annual Top 10 Beach List and Oahu was the only Hawaiian island to make the list at the #3 and #9 spots.
Duke Kahanamoku Beach took the #3 spot
Duke Kahanamoku Beach fronts the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. The boundaries are the pier on the east side and the Ala Wai Boat Harbor on the west.
It's a great stretch of beach that isn't as crowded as the main beach in the heart of Waikiki. Fee simple condos can be found just west at the Ilikai as well as the Ilikai Marina, where I just listed a 1 bed, 1 bath (MLS# 1106541) overlooking the boat harbor for $355,000.
Waimanalo Beach also made the list at #9
Waimanalo Beach on Oahu's southeastern shore is a beautiful white sand beach that seems to stretch forever...This beach was put on the map when the nearby "Robin Masters Estate" was featured on episodes of Magnum P.I.
I'm not surprised that either beach made the list. Obviously, there are many more beautiful beaches throughout Hawaii! Dr. Beach just happened to touch on a few here.
