Lanikai Beach

Lanikai  means  "heavenly sea" in the Hawaiian language and when you see it you will know why it was given this name.  It is a pristine beach and a favorite of many Kailuans and visitors alike. Its mile long beach of fine white sand and surfless, turquoise water is perfect for a beach day with the kids and for enjoying the view of the world famous Mokulua Islands, about a mile off shore. The beach cove on one of the small islands and the surf between the two are big draws to kyakers and surfers.

Lanikai Beach is truly one of the most beautiful beaches I've visited. The coconut palm trees grow close to the surf, providing restful shade if desired. Prevailing winds along with crustal blue and turquoise water offer a completely delightful Hawaiian beach experience.

Best snorkeling we've seen between Maui and Oahu so far! Some sea turtles and a huge variety of friendly, colorful fish. Perfect place to take a timid kiddo because the reef blocks most of the waves. That said, not good for boogie boarding or surfing. Definitely bring an umbrella if you want shade, there isn't any on the beach. We also couldn't find a spray off station, and parking was a struggle. Still nice, very beautiful!

This is the prettiest, and most relaxing beach we visited on Oahu. Calm waves, powdery sand, not too crowded, amazing views. It has great snorkeling, kayaking, and sunbathing. There are no amenities, and parking is residential, so it’s a bit different, but it was our favorite beach on the island.

However there is limited space here and no shade. The sand is nice but not really worth the time to get to this area when there are so many better options available.

Beautiful beach. The color of the water is fantastic as well as the temperature. The sand is so soft that you are going to love it. The only negative thing is that there are no facilities here. A good spot to do some snorkel but gear yourself
