If there’s one thing Honolulu has it’s foot traffic, so take note. Drivers must yield to pedestrians using crosswalks or approaching sidewalks.
Let locals pass
Oahu is gorgeous, and rides out to the countryside offer scenery that most mainland or foreign visitors have never seen before. If you find yourself oohing, aahing and slowing down to take in views, pull over (if it’s safe to) and let the local who’s tailing you pass! It’s the aloha way.
Finding a parking spot
Parking can be tricky in Honolulu. Here’s a look at what you’re working with.
Just about all street parking in Honolulu is metered. Meters aren’t enforced on Sundays, but start at a dollar every other day of the week. Some meters accept credit cards; others only accept coins. Bring extra change just in case!
Parking garages are mostly stress-free and rates aren’t outrageous. Here’s a guide to parking garages in downtown Honolulu.
Parking at Ala Moana Beach is free but fills up quickly on the weekends.
Waikiki Beach parking is a challenge, so many visitors opt for nearby garages or shopping plazas close to beach access.
For access to Kuhio Beach, guests staying at The Twin Fin Hotel can simply cross the street.
Additionally, there are parking meters available at nearby Kapiolani Park, located at 3840 Paki Ave., Honolulu.
