Lanikai Beach is a beautiful beach, calm waters, and a perfect place to take pictures. We had a blast and there wasn’t a big crowd.

Where to start - i have never been to such a beach where it looked like we were in a commercial! White and clean sand, crystal blue waters with corals and a scattering of islands in the background to put the cherry on the cake....More

It was a nice stop on our tour around Oahu. We didn’t actually spend a lot of time there but the view we saw was magnificent.

We spent many hours on the beach. The first day the beach was full of plastic due to a wave of garbage that hit the day before. Very scary. After a few days, the beach was clean and we enjoyed our time there very much.

The best beach by far with the best views!! Parking is a bit of a challenge, make sure your tires are off the road!! Not a lot of shade, so bring your sunscreen or a shade. Snorkeling is possible here as well.

It was so far one the most beautiful beaches in Oahu to us. We loved the white sand, the view and of course, clear and crystal water. But there were two things we did not like: no bathroom, and so many tourists during weekend!

There are no hotels near this beach. Look for a vacation house to rent if you are interested in staying in this area.
