“Great Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Not as busy as Waikiki! Great for swimming; lots of local families enjoying the calm water. Nice sunsets from the beach.

“Memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Growing up in Hawaii, San Souci was always a spot where the ohana would go for a day at the beach. Ther was the hibachi going, volleyball net up and a game going on, and everyone having fun.

“Sans Souci a real treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Being a life-long resident and native Hawaiian, Sans Souci beach has been a favorite for most of my life. I has a protected cove, and real sand surrounded by some of the most historical areas in all of the Waikiki-Kapahulu area. One can walk over to the Honolulu Zoo, visit Kapiolani Park, and eat at the Elks Club, where the restaurant shots were filmed for "the Decendants," and get the best meal in Waikiki at Michel's at the Colony Surf. This was the favorite spot for Robert Louis Stevenson, King Kalakaua, and Queen Liliu`okalani. The beach is very family friendly, and visitors at the main Waikiki hotels can catch a city bus to this beach for one dollar and a short 5 minute ride. The main thing to remember in Hawaii is to go where the "locals" go, eat where the "locals" eat, and swim where the "locals swim. The restrooms and comfort areas are usually clean and well policed. This Not always the case in other parts of Waikiki.

“A nice quiet beach away from it all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

I was born and raised in hawai'i and this is my favorite beach on the south end of the island. The water is ALWAYS crystal clear whenever I go and if you go on a weekday the beach is never packed. The water is cool and refreshing. It's far removed from Waikiki, closer to Diamond Head. There is a bathroom in the Natatorium next to it but not much as far as food so bring a cooler, soak in the sun and RELAX :)
