Waikiki Wall

Oahu's Unique Man Made Landmark

A distinctive attraction along Waikiki Beach, the Waikiki Wall, affectionately known as "Walls," or the Kapahulu Groin, holds a cherished place in the hearts of both locals and tourists.

While the mention of Waikiki usually conjures images of sandy shores, it's the resilient concrete walls of Walls that define Waikiki for bodyboarders and savvy beachgoers. A beloved sanctuary on O‘ahu's south shore, Walls is where you'll find those who treasure the true essence of this iconic beach.

The story of the Wall, also known as the Kapahulu Groin, began in 1951 when it was erected to create a sandy beach in an area that rarely saw natural sand formations. Over the years, seasonal tides carried sand away and back, but it was the Wall that provided a consistent and cherished location for beachgoers.
