Hawaii’s Waikiki Beach Pool – Notes
As the Google Earth image shows, Hawaii’s Waikiki Beach Pool is a large protected swimming area off Oahu’s Kuhio Beach Park. Its two nearly enclosed pools are the happy outcome of efforts to control beach erosion in the 1950s by creating the Kapahulu Groyne and the low rock walls that run perpendicular to the groyne and parallel to the beach.
Unlike the nearby and long-closed Waikiki War Memorial Natatorium, this is not a formal pool designed to cater for competitive swimming.
