Fort DeRussy Beach Park, Honolulu

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Featuring a wide expanse of soft, white sand, Fort DeRussy Beach Park is a great place to relax and play. The generally calm waters are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. If you don't have a snorkel set but want to see the coast's collection of coral and colorful fish, rent one from a nearby beach hut. Bodyboards and kayaks are also available for rental. On shore, you can play a game of volleyball or unwind with a book in the grassy, shaded area. Cool down with a classic Hawaiian shaved ice from the stand outside the Hale Koa hotel. Before you head to Honolulu, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Honolulu holiday planner, to make sure you see all that Honolulu has to offer, including Fort DeRussy Beach Park.

  • I've often walked by this place and finally decided to go in. I'm glad I did. It was really interesting and free of charge. It is well set up and gives a good insight into what it is like to serve in ...  more »
  • Large open beaches and lawn areas--one of the few in Waikiki. Places to order food and drinks, as well as beach and water gear. Wonderful family location.  more »
  • This is a park is west of Waikiki beach. You will pass by it if you are out walking around. Nothing special, a city park. Across from the Army Museum.  more »

  • Great spot to relax and soak up some sun - lots of families here. Pickle ball courts and small concession stand.
  • My toddler loved the small playground. And we found it relaxing to sit under the shade just a stone throw away from the beach. It's nothing to write home about but a good respite from the hustle on Waikiki.
  • Easy parking, good beach with ready access to food and drinks. Fort DeRussy is a good, but small, museum. The water is not clear for a Pacific Island but there are quite a few turtles and some fish. Good place to rent boards and the sunrise is nice.
  • Nice beach and more shady. The best spot for beach lovers
  • Went from Texas to Ft D in july of 2015 really cool set up
