Between the New Otani and the Aquarium, this is a wide, quiet, people friendly beach. A favorite of swimmers and snorkelers. Also a great place for family picnic as it is surrounded by Kapiolani Park.

Sans Souci beach is a beautiful wide beach at the foot of world renowned Diamond Head. Great place for kids or just lying down to relax and read a book. Great vantage point for beautiful sunsets and view of the Waikiki skyline.

This beach is more quiet than its adjoining waikiki beach with white sofr smooth sand to walk upon or even sunbathing. The green areaoff the beach road is maked with statue of queen kapiolani of Hawaii. It's very serene, tranquil , good for relaxation.

Lovely spot after the Natatorium but no services at all. Queens Beach s couple blocks up before this offers bathrooms, snack bars and plenty more parking around Kapiollani Park.

I am a huge fan of this local beach which is just off of the Waikiki tourist route. It has wonderful sand and excellent places to swim in.

This is a gorgeous family beach frequented by locals far from the madding crowds of central Waikiki BUT it has become some kind of dog beach because neither the life guards nor the police do their jobs. Dogs are NOT ALLOWED in the park and...More
