A nice change from Waikiki beach. Quiet and clean and very pretty. The clear calm waters are amazing. This is defiantly one of the nicest beaches I've seen and I have been to some of the other top ranked beaches in the world in Australia, Cuba, Italy, Greece, Mexico, Croatia, Florida, Portugal, etc. There is one restaurant about a 15...

This beach was so wonderful and because of its location, parking is difficult but worth the headache. It had some of the most amazing spa to snorkel. I could have stayed here just at this beach for weeks! Loved it. We went here the most

This is a great beach in a quiet residential zone. There is coral and a reef on this beach. However due to the winds, it tends to be low visibility for snorkelling. However, it is one of the most beautiful beaches along with Kailua beach nearby. Great for sun, surf and sand!

My daughter took me to this beach as it is one of her favourites. Once there I could see why. Soft floury sand and not crowded. The ocean water was great and calm.

This is one of my favorite beaches in Hawaii. Absolutely beautiful! Multi color waters, white soft sand, and amazing views are what make this beach spectacular!

You know those beaches that you dream of: "clear blue skies, white sand, crystal-clear warm water..." well this is the real thing. A beach known mostly by the locals, we were fortunate enough to have received recommendations from a few friends to make sure we visit Lanikai Beach. The first day we visited, unfortunately, it was a gray, rainy day.... More
