Blocks away from bustling Waikiki, Monsarrat offers a variety of shops and eateries—at a much slower pace.

Water Blue Bikinis
Smack between a florist and a barbershop, this 300-square-foot boutique is packed with hard-to-find bikini lines from Brazil, Italy and Argentina. Just don’t expect brand-name surf lines here. “We sell trendy suits that appeal to girls into bikini fashion,” says co-owner Margo Powell. More than half her clients are locals seeking out pieces by Vitamin A, Bella Bikinis, Joia and Lisa Lozano, which range from $50 to $150 each. And if you’re shopping for baby, don’t forget to check out the shop’s adorable bikinis for newborns. 3118 Monsarrat Ave., 739-9112.

Diamond Head Cove Health Bar
Owner Marcus Marcos, a self-described smoothie schlep, keeps it simple: a handful of lunch items, two açai bowl options and seven smoothie flavors, including the popular awa smoothie with coconut milk, bananas and maple syrup. Almost everything is locally and organically grown, made or caught, including the fish. Marcos even supports local musicians, featuring live music by artists such as John and Guy Cruz and Kupaaina on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. 3045 Monsarrat Ave., 732-8744, www.diamondheadcove.com
