Lanikai Beach

Lanikai Beach is located in Lanikai, a neighborhood within Kailua, on the windward coast of Oahu, Hawaii. This small beach (only 0,5 miles in a length) is located in a primary upper-class residential area. Although the beach is a public property, there is no public parking lot and the area lacks facilities like restroom, showers or lifeguards. But, if you are in need of such facilities Kailua Beach Park is a good choice. During the week the beach is almost empty, but on weekends it can be extremely crowded.

In Hawaiian language Lanikai means "heavenly sea" and that is exactly what you will find at Laniki Beach. Warm turquoise green waters, soft sand and gentle trade winds will offer you a cool relief and deep relaxation. The beach is a perfect place for sunbathing and swimming, so don't forget to bring your swim wear and snorkel gear.

Lanikai is a popular spot for photo shoots: many renowned models and photographers prefer making their photo sessions on this beach. Due to its position on the east side of the island, Lanikai is considered to be a great place to watch the moonrise over the Mokuluas, especially during the full moon.
