Wave “hello” your buddies back home and have them see you do it in real time! Thanks to the Hawai‘i State government’s two cameras in Waikiki—which connect to a live feed on the Internet—visitors can say “aloha” and show off a shaka to family and friends (or show off their newly tanned skin) through the live webcasts. Even if they are watching footage from across the ocean, the blue skies (on most days) and boardshort-wearing passers-by in the background will make them feel like they’re right here with you here in paradise. The cameras are located at Kuhio Beach and at the Duke Kahanamoku Statue respectively. The camera located at the Duke Kahanamoku Statue is the most popular, where people can pose with the iconic Hawaiian waterman. On the other hand, the Kuhio Beach cam is perfectly placed to catch a gorgeous Hawaiian sunrise or sunset. So the next time you tell your nearest and dearest that you “wish they were here,” make your way to these video cameras ASAP.
