"Boat days" is the theme at this Waikiki emporium, a three-floor extravaganza of shops ranging from the superluxe (such as Givenchy and Coach) to the very touristy. Great Hawaii food products range from the incomparable Big Island Candies' shortbread cookies to a spate of coffees and preserves. There are multitudes of aloha shirts and T-shirts, a virtual golf course, surf and skate equipment, a terrific Hawaiian music department, and a labyrinth of fashionable stores once you get past the Waikiki Walk. Fragrances and cosmetics make a big splash at DFS. Starbucks serves up coffee and smoothies. Note: Some sections are duty-free and therefore restricted to international travelers only.
