A summer getaway to Hawaii was not top on my list.  Although it’s a beautiful destination, I wanted to spend my summer days elsewhere since I’ve already been to all the islands.   I especially did not want to go back to Oahu.  It’s crowded and touristy!  But, after experiencing Lanikai Beach, I would definitely go back.

Lanikai Beach is ranked as one of the best beaches in the world.  It’s beautiful with its white sand and tranquil aqua blue waters along the Windwardside of Oahu.  It was truly a perfect getaway.  There were no hotels nearby to attract crowds and the beach access was within walking distance from our Airbnb.

Not fond of crowds, this beach is perfect!
Isn't this dreamy? Could you imagine spending all day here?
How about a picnic? No crowds and lots of shade to set up!
Oh, just strolling this gorgeous beach!
Gotta love a flowy white dress on the beach!
Sometimes you just need a beach day with your BESTFRIEND!

There was so much to do.  My friend, Liz and I biked and spent hours basking in the Hawaiian sun.  We explored Lanikai without fighting traffic and the crowd.  It felt like we were one of the locals just after a few days of being there.   I would definitely recommend Lanikai Beach in Oahu as a place to get some rest and relaxation.  I think it’s Oahu’s hidden gem!

Found our perfect spot!
How would you like to bike to the beach from your Airbnb? We did!
