The Ala Wai Canal is an artificial canal that separates Honolulu with Waikiki. Created in the 1920’s to drain the excess water from rice paddies and swamps that were considered unhygienic, the canal covers a length of 2.4 kilometers.

The Canal front is ideal for a walk and offers a view of the city of Waikiki. Often you can find locals boating in the canal and see the Waikiki Surf Club prepping their rowing skills.
