If you want to escape the hordes at Waikiki Beach, consider coming here. Just down the road a short 5-10 minutes, right near the New Otani Hotel. Parking can be a challenge...but where isn't it, in Honolulu :) Many fish in the clear water. Clean sand, a bit more relaxing with terrific views of beautiful Waikiki.

This is a beautiful, peaceful beach at the end of Waikiki. It's far enough away that you don't get the crowds, but you get the same beautiful views!

At one end of Waikiki, this beach is usually uncrowded. The water is generally very calm. It is a short swim to a small reef. The reef is not spectacular but it is a good place for easy snorkeling. On most days, the water by the beach is great for toddlers. There are not many beaches as suited for them.

Great place; mostly tourist-free! So close to the hell of Waikiki but far enough away to keep most of the tourists away. I hate Waikiki due to the throngs of people. I was so surprised to discover this beach a few weeks ago while walking along the promenade. Very clear water and only a handful of folks there. The beach... More

This beach is at the shore of the new Otani where we stayed. It is a shared beach with the locals but only gets busy on the weekends. This is much better than Waikiki as it is not as busy and the waves come in at an angle leaving the beach at the resort very calm. The beach is right... More

I'm torn about writing this review. I almost want to keep this beach a secret! After an 8 day stay at the New Otani which is situated right on this beach, we absolutely loved the quiet local vibe at this beach vs the more crowded popular beaches of Waikiki. During the weekdays it’s fairly empty and on the weekends it... More

After driving through the Waikiki area, packed with the usual suspects having way too much fun. We ran into a park to get away from the crazy Beach action. Sans Souci Beach Park is at the end, so to speak, of Waikiki. It too had lots of people. But what seemed a much more mellow, laid back crowd. There's lots... More

We had a welcome ceremony for our conference at this Beach. It was really lovely and much quieter than further down towards the main strip at Waikiki. There is lots of parking and it's not far to walk if you have to walk either. Close to the Zoo and Aquarium as well. We really liked it hear and revisited later... More
