The Kapahulu Groin at Queen's Surf Beach

? The Kapahulu Groin is a pedestrian walkway that extends into the ocean from Queen's Surf Beach on the Diamond Head end of Waikiki. It is an extension of a storm drain that runs under Kapahulu Avenue and it was built in 1951 on the spot where the Old Kuekaunahi Stream use to flow into the sea after crossing the Waikiki Swamp. The ocean end of the Kapahulu Groin is a wonderful place to take panoramic photos of Waikiki but watch out for the huge splashes of water some of the local kids delight in surprising you with by jumping off the walkway into the sea (an activity that is dangerous and supposedly strictly forbidden).
