Lanikai

Beaches
  • Sailboat scoots past the Mokuluas.

Quite possibly Oahu’s most picturesque beach! Powder-soft white sand, calm azure water, and the Mokulua (Twin) Islands about a half-mile offshore. Waves are small, and the water stays shallow for a good stretch, making it a perfect place for young children to play.

Highlights

  • Lanikai is a residential area. Park on the street and use a public beach access to get on the sand.
  • In Hawaiian, Lanikai means 'heavenly sea.' That is no exaggeration!
  • Calm, crystal-clear water offers great conditions for snorkeling, swimming, SUPing and kayaks.
