Lani means heavenly and kai means water. Lanikai Beach is voted one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii and in the world. I think the picture speaks for itself, just so picturesque. Sand is beige and powdery soft. It does get windy and sand gets everywhere because it's so fine. Once you see the beach and the Mokulua (twin) islands in front, it'll ingrain such an image so beautiful you will never forget.

One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Turquoise water, powdery sand and islands dotting the horizon. It's on the windward side, so it can be windier and wetter than other beaches. But when the weather is good it's tough to beat!

Million-dollar homes stacked up along the shoreline mean that Lanikai Beach is slowly washing away. But the views of offshore islands are still meditatively peaceful - if you can find any sand to walk on. Come at low tide, or for sunrise.

The water here is just a little calmer than in Kailua. That's because it's more protected by the offshore reef. However, the strip of beach is eroding away. So, if you rent a place here, check and see if the beach is accesible or not. There are lots of great rental homes either on the beach (pricey) or a block or two away. This is a terrific sandy beach, just a short distance from the Mokulua Islands. Its a great area for little kids, since the shore break is usually minimal.

Lanikai Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches not only in Hawaii but the world...When you dream of that perfect POSTCARD beach, that's Lanikai beach! It's Heaven here and families as well as hip crowds and dogs are in love with this beach and all the romance that this beach reps. Plenty of sunshine here and if you keep walking to the end before the beach ends and the ocean starts you will be all alone with palm trees around you. The water is perfect in its shades of green and blues, its temps of between 75-80 degrees are to dream for. This beach is what Hawaii is all about, when you leave paradise this is the beach you will remember Hawaii for. This is a must see...to miss this beach on your vacation would be a crime for any beach lover.

Absolutely gorgeous and ranks on many worlds BEST beaches lists ( despite residents within everyone would just keep quiet about it ). It's a bit over run on the weekends but weekdays early and late in the day can be pretty mellow and great for a jog on the beach.
