Happy World Ocean Month: Let's Celebrate the Sea

June is World Ocean Month, and when you are in Waikiki, that's certainly something to celebrate! Our location just steps from iconic Waikiki Beach and the Pacific Ocean means you can immerse yourself in everything to do with the sea, from gazing at the turquoise hues, smelling the sea air, tasting the salty brine, hearing the gentle waves, and bathing in its warm temperatures. 


As visitors and fans of this marine playground, it is also our responsibility to protect and preserve. In fact, the mission of the month is to spotlight ocean awareness and literacy. We've rounded-up our favorite ways to malama (care for) the ocean, learn about its importance, show respect for marine life, and, of course, enjoy it to the fullest.  


You can help the ocean stay clean and healthy, even while on vacation. A simple switch to reef-safe sunscreen keeps harmful chemicals out of the water, protecting coral colonies. Pick-up a locally made mineral sunscreen at Keep It Simple at Waikiki Beach Walk. You can also join a beach clean-up to keep trash out of the ocean and away from marine animals. Sustainable Coastlines Hawai‘iSurfrider Foundation, and 808 Cleanups host events across the island, so you can sightsee while you serve. 


Marine Wildlife at Embassy Suites, Waikiki

The more you know, the more you appreciate! Visit the Waikiki Aquarium to learn about Hawai‘i's unique marine wildlife and endangered species. For instance, did you know you must stay 10 feet away from Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles and 50 feet away from Hawaiian Monk Seals? Bonus: Embassy Suites by Hilton Waikiki Beach Walk guests receive complimentary youth entrance per paid adult (a $5 value)! 


Splash, swim, snorkel, surf, stand-up paddle, canoe – you name it! Waikiki is meant for fun under the Hawaiian sun. The experts at Big Wave Dave located in our lobby can help you revel in the beauty and wonder of Waikiki's waves. Rent a board, book a lesson, or borrow snorkel gear, so you can see first-hand why Waikiki is so special.
