Lanikai Overview

Lanikai is a quaint residential area at the most eastern part of Kailua. It may be difficult to find if you're not familiar with Kailua. Drive east along North Kalaheo Drive, you'll see a stone statue marking the entrance into Lanikai.

Known for one of the best beaches on the island of Oahu, Lanikai boasts white sand, calm and clear waters with a view of the Mokulua Islands.

*There are no stores/shops in Lanikai so be sure to stop off at Kalapawai Market or Kailua Town for drinks/food beforehand.
