The Ala Wai Canal is a 2 mile, man-made waterway that runs from Kapahulu Ave, along Waikiki, and empties into the Pacific Ocean in the Kahanamoku Lagoon. The Ala Wai Canal was constructed in 1928 and shaped what we know to be Waikiki today.

It is against the law to ride a bicycle on the sidewalks in Waikiki.
