For centuries Waikīkī was the playground of Hawaiian royals, surfers, Hollywood stars and everyone in between. Waikīkī was once rich with agricultural fields and plentiful fish from the reefs. The name “Waikīkī” translates as the “spouting waters” because of the many streams that flowed from the mountains through the valleys to provide fresh water which fed the low land crops.
