Honolulu: President Barack Obama spent the first day of 2011 with his family, enjoying the sunny, warm Hawaiian weather.

Obama, wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha spent several hours yesterday at Pyramid Rock, a secluded beach at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

It`s the same base where the President starts his day with a morning workout.

The first family then hit the tennis courts at Kailua Racquet Club, a private club near the neighbourhood where the Obamas are renting a luxurious oceanfront home.

Obama has made just a few, brief public appearances during his nearly two-week vacation. The Obamas are scheduled to leave Hawaii tomorrow, arriving in Washington the following day.
