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

Take a walk toward Diamond Head. You will find a lovely protected deep sand beach at the foot of Diamond Head. San Souci Beach is the only beach where we went swimming during our month long stay in Waikiki. We liked the quiet laid back vibe of this beach. The busy Waikiki beaches are fun for a beach stroll. But,... More

Came to this beach for something different than Waikiki. It's a little less crowded and quieter and the water is good for some more secluded swimming and snorkeling. We stayed to watch the sunset and enjoy the beautiful view! Great option that isn't so far from Waikiki (15-20 minute walk or a quick bus ride) and close to Diamond Head!... More

We went there the other day after kids finished school. Free parking in front of it if you get lucky. Life guard on duty, sheltered from the waves, we saw a decent bunch variety of fish while snorkeling. Showers, did not try the bathrooms. Much less crowded than the rest of Waikiki.

Waikiki beaches tend to be very crowded but this beach is closer towards the Diamond Head side. Nice easy access spot for sunbathing and a little bit of snorkel fun. It is no Sharks Reef, Electric Beach, or H Bay experience but it is a great starter.

Showers and toilets are present as is a Lifeguard Tower. Lots more locals here so wander down and have a look, its a great walk along the beach under the... More

On Waikiki Beach you have to step over and around bodies in search of a small patch of sand for your towel. But, just 15 minutes walk from the south-east end of the Waikiki shoppng strip (just past the Honolulu Aquarium - worth a visit) you come to Sans Souci Beach, a modestly-sized area of fine sand with plenty of...
