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 it was still pretty good snorkeling. It's less crowded than Waikiki, but not secluded by any means. Lanikai Beach is still my favorite in Oahu (see my separate review), but San Souci beach has better snorkeling (Lanikai is not really good for snorkeling) and it has an absolutely gorgeous sunset. It's also closer to the Waikiki area (you'd still have to drive but much closer than Lanikai). You can watch the sunset from the beach, or if you'd like, visit the Hau Tree Lanai restaurant which is right on the beach (see my separate review - we loved this spot - great place for a nice, romantic, sunset dinner). We spent a few hours on the beach and snorkeling, then went and cleaned up at our hotel and came back for a nice dinner at the Hau Tree Lanai. All in all, a visit to San Souci beach, at least to view the sunset, is definitely a must.
