OF WAIKIKI BEACH (Centre Spread)
- Probably the most beautiful beach in all the world is to be seen at Waikiki. At all hours
of the day bathers and surf riders can be seen in the surf. Canoes can be
seen dashing in the green waves as they come rolling in from the Pacific, filled with laughing
natives and tourists. This famous beach
is easily accessible to the city and bathing can be indulged in at
night as well as day. There is not
the slightest danger from undertow or deep water.
