This is a small beach about a 15 minute walk from Waikiki central towards Diamond Head. There are toilet facilities at the old baths which have been shut for safety reasons. The beach at San Souci is patrolled by life guards. Great for families, and also to get away from the hotel crowds in Waikiki

The waves were too high on the North Shore so we came to this beach for a day of snorkeling and I am glad we did. The water was nice and calm and there was a huge amount and variety of fish. The beach was very clean and enjoyable to lay in the sun on. We had a nice time... More

My husband and I visited this little beach on our trip to Oahu. We loved it. I think we read about it in our Oahu Revealed guidebook (A. Doughty). We brought our rented snorkel gear with us. The snorkeling was pretty good - we saw lots of fish - nowhere near as many as we saw in Hanauma Bay, but... More
