This is an absolutely gorgeous beach. It's far enough from the buzz of Waikiki that you can avoid the crowds, but safe to walk to and still enjoy the same stunning sunsets!

This is a small beach about a 15 minute walk from Waikiki central towards Diamond Head. There are toilet facilities at the old baths which have been shut for safety reasons. The beach at San Souci is patrolled by life guards. Great for families, and also to get away from the hotel crowds in Waikiki

Located just a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki's main beach, you will find this little piece of ocean front. My favorite spot for swimming in Honolulu! The confident swimmer can easily go for a nice swim out to the marked buoy. Ocean currents will determine the degree of work out, you will have to do.... More

Perfect snorkeling and many fish, eels at times and sea turtles in the area. It is very close to the aquarium. Great to get... More

The waves were too high on the North Shore so we came to this beach for a day of snorkeling and I am glad we did. The water was nice and calm and there was a huge amount and variety of fish. The beach was very clean and enjoyable to lay in the sun on. We had a nice time... More

My husband and I visited this little beach on our trip to Oahu. We loved it. I think we read about it in our Oahu Revealed guidebook (A. Doughty). We brought our rented snorkel gear with us. The snorkeling was pretty good - we saw lots of fish - nowhere near as many as we saw in Hanauma Bay, but... More
