LANIKAI BEACH, OAHU
Our Facebook ohana selected his half-mile long stretch of sugary white sand on Oahu’s windward side as their favorite Hawaii beach. The sand—fine and perfect for sinking toes in or building sand castles. The water—clear, with gently lapping surf and almost-always perfect conditions for swimming and snorkeling. When the tradewinds are easy-breezy, kayakers glide to the nearby Mokuluas—a couple of offshore islets that are Lanikai’s iconic, much-photographed backdrop. There’s a beach landing at Moku Nui (“big island” in Hawaiian) while its twin, Moku Iki (“little island”) is largely inaccessible to visitors.
