Far from the beautiful scenes of nature we were expecting, our trip to the Mokulua islands was filled with drunken Marines and local kids partying. Besides that, the island was overwhelmed with fellow tourists and our kayaks trying to find a few inches of sand like penguins bracing for the winter storm. It was crazy how crowded this place was...

Kailua Beach’s proximity to several small islands makes it an ideal place for adventuring and kayaking. Closest to the shore is barren Flat Island, and far off to the east are the Mokulua Islands, commonly known as “Moks” or “Twin Islands.” From Kailua Beach it takes about 42 minutes to get to the Moks, and from Lanakai, about 23 minutes;...

My husband and I kayaked out here. We rented a kayak at a place right near Lanikai Beach (was within walking distance of the beach). We saw sea turtles on the kayak ride to the island.

My wife and I rented a double kayak and snorkeling equipment and set off. It took 30-40 minutes to get there. The hike around the island is nice. We enjoyed swimming in one of the tidepools. We were able to see some pretty unique fish and a couple of sea turtles while snorkeling. There's also a nice jump rock, but... More

These islands are spectacular and so fun to go visit. Pack a lunch and bring water! All the reviews said that kayaking out to these islands was somewhat difficult, but me being a person that is "in shape" thought it would be easy. I have to admit that we were exhausted when we were done. It took time and effort... More

The island rewards you with beautiful views after a decent kayak out. A great beach and interesting rock formations. We always pack a lunch and make the trip out here. A great spot to go to for the adventurous.

This seabird sanctuary is very secluded and has beautiful views of Lanikai. Kayak out and enjoy the small private beach, tide pools, and crashing waves.
