    “I hate people.” Don’t worry, I get it sometimes, too.

    Thanks for the tips, I am there in August and September and will have a try of the restaurant you mention.

    One of the great joys of east-to-west jet lag—the early morning! I fell in love with Venice flying in from Hong Kong, and Tokyo flying in from NYC…

    We were there for about 6 weeks last summer, and are moving there next week, and we love getting up early before everyone else! Glad you found a spot you like, next time you’re in town I’ll take you up to Boots and Kimo’s in Kailua for the best breakfast you’ll have in a while!

    Love breakfast at egg’n’things …. and a quiet morning beach. Can’t wait till November 2013 for my next trip.

    Seth – Be glad you have come after Waikiki’s beach was restored to its 1970’s line. For the past year, much of the beach has been just giant mounds of sand dredged up from off-shore. They just finished a few months ago. Really took the allure off the place (and prevented nice morning walks along the beach), and now there is quite a bit more room to the beach.

    I fully agree – the early morning hours are my favorite part of the day in Waikiki! While I don’t mind sharing a piece of the island with other during the day, the quiet of the morning gives me the opportunity to have it all for myself!

    Which lodgings have you discovered?

    We were there back in March. I agree, as a whole, that Waikiki Beach can be rather obnoxious and crowded. However, we saw some of the early morning views that you had as well, with virtually nobody on the beach except for maybe a person or two walking. It’s such a different place at that time. Thanks for capturing that with your photos and putting it in writing.

    Funniest thing (for me) about Waikiki is that everyone will first speak to you in Japanese if you’re Asian. If you turn out to be an American, they’ll pretty much ignore you after that.
