One of the Best Beaches in the World – Lanikai

Lanikai beach in Oahu is consistently rated as one of the best in the world owing to its pristine sands, turquoise water, calm waves, and lush tropical plants. It has extremely soft powdery clean white sand and that makes it a must-see there. Btw, the name Lanikai means ‘heavenly sea,’ and the place is aptly called.

We went there right on day 1 because of my love for beaches. I should emphasize that it was so bright with sun pounding down that it was becoming difficult to even keep the eyes open for long (the beach and water are super-clean).lanikai beach oahubest beaches in the worldThe water temperatures there are normally between 24-26 degree Celsius, perfect for any time of the year. What especially makes the beach popular among photographers is the two islands in the background, called Na Mokulua or “mokes.”
parasailing at lanikaiThe only issue there is the parking, as there is limited public parking space. If you are headed there on a weekend, be ready to wait for the parking slot (the violation is strictly enforced). Since we went there on a weekday, we were lucky to spend a relaxing couple of hours.

  1. Amazing shots of Lanikai, Alok. Can’t keep your eyes open for long…it must be that beautiful a sight, almost too good to be true sight to behold. Looks like perfect weather and the perfect beach day. Sounds like a trip to remember 🙂

  2. Hawaii is not much talked about places in this part of the world. Looking at your first picture, I would have mistaken it for some beach in Asia. Is it equally popular among locals and tourists?
