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

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

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
