Just Diamond Head of the Waikiki Aquarium lies this gem. Always difficult parking 24/7. Great people watching and awesome shallow clean H2O to swim. Don’t tell anyone!! Ha!

This space is located right at the end of Waikiki and mainly for locals because tourists don't know about it. People just walk around the main Waikiki and never pass the last point but this is a hangout for local families for weekends where they...More

I love people watching and wading into the surf, but that's as far as I'll go because there are so many rocks so close to the beach. There is a little drop off and it creates some rough water (not fun with the rocks); but...More

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.

We walked along from the main waikiki beach in order to watch the sun come down. The beach seems quieter than the main waikiki beach but it is still overlooked by a lifeguard. The views from a bench across from the beach were superb as...More
