Located in Lanikai, a community in the town of Kailua and on the windward coast. The name means “Heavenly sea ” in Hawaiian, a perfectly suitable name for such a beautiful place. Lanikai Beach is one of the most beautiful beach in the world. In fact, it has been awarded the number 1 beach in the US in 1996. I would like to introduce my favorite beach on Oahu “Lanikai Beach”.
The beautiful contrast of emerald green and white sand beach is the “Heavenly sea”.
Lanikai beach is just aside of Kailua beach, surrounded by a high classed residential area. You can find a small path leading to Lanikai beach and you would spot a beautiful view in between.
It is a pristine beach with no public facilities such as locker rooms and restrooms. I was able to spend a greaet time relaxing.
By the way, you do not need to worry about the restrooms because you can find one near the parking lot of Kailua beach, which is a 15 minute walking distance from Lanikai beach.
You can enjoy the view of both Lanikai and Kailua beach from “Pillbox” one of the most famous hill in Oahu, located in a 5 minute walking distance from Lanikai Beach.
I would also like to recommend the area near Kailua Town, which has fashionable boutiques, cafes and the popular supermarket “Whole Foods”.
Do not miss the Lanikai beach and the area around ! Have a wonderful trip.
