This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, perhaps the one other beaches are measured by. Yes, parking is hard to find. I usually park 2 blocks up at the very end of the loop road. be sure to stow all your gear in the trunk. I usually take a waterproof camera, my car keys and a towel. The sand here is white and very small, not like most tan sesame sand O'ahu beaches. The water is warm and calm here, perfect for swimmers of all ages. I usually go during the week, since the weekends can be quite crowded. Stop at Kailua Beach Park first to use the restroom facilities, since there are none at Lanikai. The beach is definitely eroding in some areas. Once you find your spot, lay out your towel, and take in the view of the two islands in the azure blue water and white sand, you will find your moment of zen!
