Lanikai, often called Oahu’s most beautiful beach, stretches for a half mile on Oahu’s eastern shore in Kailua. Lanikai is known for its calm waters and fantastic sunrise/moonruse views overlooking na Mokulua (or the “Mokes”), two offshore islands on the horizon. Wildlife abounds in the water and on the Mokes as honu (green sea turtle), papio (crevallejack), and weke (goatfish) thrive, along with the occasional monk seal or humpback whale. One of the most photographed spots on the globe, this beach is perfect for a picnic and basking in the Hawaiian sun. The Pono Chocolate Lanikai bar boasts the quintessential flavors of Hawaii, with coconut and banana reminiscent of this quintessential beach.
