Lanikai Beach Reviews
今まで行ったビーチで1番キレイでした！ 透明度が高いです！！ カイルアからだいぶ歩きますが、行く価値あります。 ビーチに白い小さなカニが何匹もいました。 写真で撮ると色が変色してしまい、残念ですが…。 more »It was the most beautiful beach I had ever been to! The transparency is high!! I walk from Kailua, but it's worth going. There were many small white crabs on the beach. It is regrettable that the color becomes discolored when taking it in the photograph.
Linda playa, estacionen en Kailua y luego caminen o renten una bicicleta, la playa es espectacular, pero si es un día de viento, lamentablemente será incomodo. Aún así vale la pena conocerla y disfrut... more »Nice beach, park in Kailua and then walk or rent a bike, the beach is spectacular, but if it is a windy day, unfortunately it will be unpleasant. It is still worth knowing and enjoying it.
Gorgeous, calm turquoise water with surprisingly good snorkeling gently rolls on to picturesque white sand. Photo opportunities abound with beautiful islands out in the water. Parking is a bit of a disaster, though we managed to find decent spots nearby most days
A very beautiful beach, the sand is really soft and the water can be natural given it hasn't rained recently. Be sure to bring your snorkel or goggles, you'll see some sea life and corals. I love this place and I had more fun on this part of the island.
