Rent a car and make your way to this beach. You won't be disappointed. Bring lunch, drinks, sunscreen, umbrella, chairs and floaty and your good for the day My favourite beach ever to date

Very popular and busy beach. Hard to get to because there is no dedicated parking lot so you have to drive around the neighborhood and find street parking (pay attention to any posted signs with parking restrictions). But it's easily accessible via many different public...More

If you want to see a beautiful Sunrise, this is the best place to catch a sunrise on the island with the Moks in the background! Beach itself has beautiful powder sand, water is clear and is great for swimming as there are no waves....More

Drive over from Waikiki on Saturday. The beach was very crowded. It is a beautiful beach. We came back on Monday and there were less people. If you can come midweek then do so. Water is beautiful and you can kayak and SUP to islands...More

Lanikai Beach is one of Dr Beach's best beaches in the world. The sunrise is spectacular, as well as the first to see the sunrise on the USA. See the sun, stay for the water activities.

Great place for a relaxing day alone with kids or with a dog. A real gem. Nothing commercial so grab supplies b4 you go.

It's rare for me to find a beach with anything but ocean in the distance so this was a cool treat - great sand and beautiful turquoise water - I'd definitely go back!

We stopped on the beach after our hike for some lunch. Beautiful beach with a lot of canoes and snoklers. Parking is kind of hard to find but not impossible.

There were quite a number of people there even if the beach area is not too big. But it doesn't take away from the beauty of the scenery. Lucky are the homeowners that live right on this beach.

The water was beautiful, the sand was not rocky and the beach was clean. Not as wavy as other teacher on the coast making it great for families
