Please take the escalator next to ‘Seattle’s Best Coffee’ mauka (on the street side) of the building. If the wind allows there will be a sign standing next to the escalator (but in the past it has been blown over often by the strong trade winds…) *

* The Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort is located at the diamond head side of Waikiki, very close to the Moana Surfrider. It is one of the last buildings on the makai (ocean) side of Kalakaua Avenue. For Directions click the hotel’s website.
Parking in Waikiki is always tricky..
but the Honolulu Zoo or Kalakaua Avenue along Queen’s beach provides metered parking on the mauka side, but the parking fee just went up quite a bit.
The makai (ocean) side of Kalakau Ave, still has free parking. Please remember that along Kalakaua Avenue and the Zoo meters need to be fed on Sunday too (frequent meter checks and tickets issued have been spotted). Waikiki side streets still have free parking on Sundays, if you are lucky enough to find a spot.
The Society is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to mineralogy and the lapidary arts. Our members can also help identify fossil and mineral specimens for the public.
Last but not least:
We are in the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort NOT the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort at the other end of Waikiki. Sorry, with all the hotel name changes we know that some of you ended up the the ‘wrong’ hotel in the past.
