Considered one of the best family beaches in Waikiki, Sans Souci is shallow, sandy and free of strong currents. It’s also a great location for snorkeling. Swimmers and kayakers also frequent the beach to access the waters beyond the reef through Kapua Channel, which leads to Old Man’s, a popular surf site. Also known as Kaimana Beach, San Souci is an old name that goes back to 1884 and means “without a care” in French.
