Destination guide

You may be far from home, but you're not far from heaven

On the southern edge of beautiful Kailua Bay in east Oahu, Lanikai Beach is often described as the prettiest of all the island's beaches. Miles of turquoise water stretch as far as the eye can sea, and the barely-there waves that lap the sand are a draw for vacationers of every stripe – families with kids, grown-ups with friends, and couples in love. Lanikai translates to “heavenly sea,” and you’ll see why after a swim, a hike, and a picnic under the light of the moon.

Things to do

Even the hiking comes with a little history

Once visitors have logged a bit of beach time, they often hit the Lanikai Pillbox hiking trail. It offers stunning views of the beach and the 2 Mokulua Islands just a mile offshore. The trail is named for the 2 pillboxes – concrete military observation stations used during WWII – you can spot along they way. If you’re up for a day trip from your Lanikai Beach vacation rental, drive to the western side of the island and visit its chief attraction for patriots and history buffs: the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.


Bright sun, soft sand, and serene stargazing

What to do at Lanikai Beach? Um, go to the beach. It is absolutely pristine, with a half mile of white, powdery sand, bright, blue water, and gentle waves. In fact, the waves are so chill at Lanikai Beach, they never get big enough to surf. If you know a youngster who gets nervous at the sight of roaring breakers – or if you just like peace and quiet – book a Lanikai Beach vacation rental and get ready to relax. At night, the beach is a popular spot to stargaze and watch the moonrise.


Summer, summer, and more summer at Lanikai Beach

The island has a tropical, semi-arid climate, which means warmth and humidity without too much rain. The average temps hover around the high 70s all year long, and the winter and summer weather is so similar at Lanikai Beach, it may be hard to tell the difference. Overcast days are common, but rain showers are usually light and short. The sunniest months are those from May to October, so you can look for a Lanikai Beach vacation rental in the winter months and find slightly lower prices without sacrificing perfect weather.

Natural features

A blue footed boobie will be your new feathered friend

Lanikai Beach has one of the only snorkeling spots highly recommended on the east coast of Oahu. There’s a protective reef, and live coral are easy to find if you swim a few hundred feet from the water’s edge. Strap on your snorkel and spot butterflyfish, parrotfish, surgeonfish, and blacktail dascyllus. Birdwatchers will not be disappointed either, as the 2 islands just offshore from Lanikai Beach are home to the last sanctuary for ground-nesting seabirds in Hawaii, including wedge-tailed shearwaters, blue footed boobies, and albatross.
