HONOLULU - Now that summer is here, there's no better place to sink your toes in the sands than Duke Kahanamoku Beach, recently named America's Best Beach by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman of Florida International University, AKA Dr. Beach.

Presiding over America's top beach is the 22-acre Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, Waikiki's only true destination resort. With five swimming pools, the salt-water Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon, kids' program, water sports and cultural activities, the resort provides travelers all they need for a non-stop vacation getaway.

And to make it easier for guests to experience America's Best Beach, Hilton Hawaiian Village is offering 20 percent off its regular rates with its new Waikiki Escapes Package. Rates start from just $183 per night, plus tax and can be booked for stays through December 20, 2014.

For information or reservations, visit the hotel's website at www.hawaiianvillage.hilton.com or call toll-free at +1 800 445 8667 and ask for rate code "P6." There is a five-night minimum stay and additional $30 resort charge per night.

The Hilton Hawaiian Village is Waikiki's only true destination resort, offering the perfect mix of exceptional resort accommodations and classic hospitality on Waikiki's widest stretch of beach. The resort features more than 90 shops and 20 restaurants, lounges and bars; and every Friday evening, it sets the stage for a celebration of Hawaiian culture and entertainment ending in a spectacular fireworks show.

As "Dr. Beach" (www.drbeach.org), Leatherman has selected the annual Top 10 Beaches since 1991; past national winners are retired and listed on the web site. Fifty criteria are used to evaluate beaches, which include water and sand quality as well as safety and environmental management. Dr. Leatherman is an internationally known coastal scientist who has published 16 books and hundreds of scientific articles and reports about storm impacts, coastal erosion and ways to improve beach health and safety.
