Sans Souci Beach Park is a very pleasant swimming and snorkeling area at the eastern end of Waikiki; which is protected by a coral reef, and used by many local swimmers who like to swim laps in the ocean. The Outrigger Canoe Club Beach is located just east of San Souci Beach and fronts the Outrigger Canoe Club. This beach... 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

Beautiful strip of beach, rock pools and snorkelling only 15minute walk from waikiki beach. Not many cafés or shops directly attached (about 10minure walk away) to it so take water/snacks Great view of waikiki beach for photos

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

plenty of parking if you are willing to walk a little with more free parking on the other end of Kapiolani Park is usually easier to find than right by the beach Hey it's Hawaii and you can always use a little exercise right? stop and take some killer photos on the way to and from the beach with Diamond...

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
