Clean and fun in the sun. You will like the Beach walk, it has very beautiful views of the ocean. All kinds of stuff to do, like Catamaran's, Shaved Ice Stands, Hotels on the Beach that you can visit and walk through. Just a wonderful atmosphere.

this beach was so beautiful, Robert Louis Stevenson called it "San Souci Beach", now its unofficial name. sheltered by the outer reef, the waves in this small lagoon inside is perfect for family; popular with MILFs & DILFs :) there's also a channel widey used by the paddlers to reach beyond the reefs. this channel is commonly used by swimmers,...

It's busy with a good mix of locals and tourists, very clean, and safe. I liked the fact that there isn't rocks or reef in the water. You can actually walk into the water and swim around.

Nice change away from the busy Waikiki beach this is popular with locals and felt more natural. We stayed on Sans Souci Beach and loved the walking into town along these beaches... each with it's own personality.

I like this beach because it's pretty quiet. It can get crowded but it's most local folks who come here. The sand is a bit rocky but the water is calm and the sand gets better in the water. There are showers and bathrooms nearby. Parking is tough though, be prepared to wait (free) or park outside (feed the meters).

Love this beach, very family friendly and easy access if you like to stand-up paddle or kayak. Get there early on weekends as parking is difficult, and bring your quarters as some parking is metered. Nice restaurants located nearby and you can BBQ on the grassy area if so inclined. Very calm water, easy swim for all abilities.

This is the best family beach near Waikiki but sshh, don't tell anybody. We always go there to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.

The Kaimana Beach area runs on from Waikiki Beach and is a very lively and exciting area, both day and night. The big beach hotels like the Outrigger, Halekulani and Sheriton Waikiki are close by and the night life with shops and shows is well worth a visit. The beach is good for swimming with a gentle slope. Surf boards... More

Come early for parking, bring a tent or umbrella to stay for a while. good for families with athletes to swim, then run the park, while the babysitter watches the kids in the water. Lifeguarded too.
