Kaimana Beach

Beach in Waikiki

At the Diamond Head edge of Waikiki, Kaimana is a prime sandy stretch of oceanfront that’s far from the frenzied tourist scene. It’s commonly called Sans Souci Beach for the name of the hotel that once stood on the site of today's New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel. Local residents often come here for their daily swims. A shallow reef close to shore makes for calm, protected waters and provides good snorkeling.
