Lanikai Beach, Oahu
The premiere beach on the eastern (windward) side of the island might be Lanikai Beach. This photo shows Lanikai and Kailua Beaches from Mokulua Nui island. Lanikai is behind a residential area and has no facilities of its own. Access is via shoreline access points in the residential neighborhood. Parking can be a problem here, so get here early to find the best spot. Another option is adjacent Kailua Beach Park, which has facilities and another excellent beach.
