My favorite beach to go to after eating breakfast at Boots & Kimo. It's a really fine white sand. I went in November and it was perfect. The waves weren't too strong. The only tip I have is for you to be aware of jellyfish....More

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!

Bit of a distance when travelling on bus from wakki beach but it's worth it. Clear blue sea with some shade too under the trees. Not to crowded too, but it's nice to be early for choice. Makesure you bring food and drinks with you...More

My husband and I visited for our anniversary and fell in love with this beach. It is absolutely breath taking and I recommend sending hours there just enjoying the view.

Lanikai beach is very good. Nice white sand and easy to get to. All good but need to pay attention to jellyfish from time to time!

Beautiful blue, blue-green, and aqua waters and two islands a mile offshore. What is not to love? Very little surf ... this is a place for the kids. I was lucky enough to live here, right on the water, in the forties, back when it...More

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