8. Lanikai Beach, Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii
In Hawaiian language the word Lanikai means “heavenly sea” and when you see it you will know that the sentence is true.
The Lanikai beach is a pristine beach and a favorite place by many Kailuans and tourists alike. Another amazing aspect about the beach is its mile long beach of fine white sand.
The turquoise water is perfect for a beach day with the kids and the perfect opportunity to enjoy the view of the world famous Mokulua Islands, about a mile off shore.
The beach cove on one of the small islands and the surf between the two are big draws to kyakers and surfers.
Ranked among the best beaches in the world over the years, we had to put the beach in our list.
