“Heavenly Sea”. That is the translation of the Hawaiian word “lanikai”, which happens to also be the name of Hawaii's most popular beaches. Appropriately named, Lanikai Beach boasts the golden sun, aquamarine waters, and white sandy shores that are typical of tropical destinations.
Whether it's tanning on the beach or exploring the mysteries of the deep in snorkeling gear, Lanikai Beach delivers, both, fun and relaxation. The beach isn't a large one, with only a half mile of shore, but it is situated among a upper class neighbourhood, making it safe, and affording the view of a well-kept residential area.
If you wish, stick around as the sun goes down – watching the moon rising over the Mokuluas is an especially stunning experience.
