Lanikai Beach & Pillbox (Hiking & Beach)

Lanikai Beach has always been one of our favorite beaches on the island of Oahu. Its crystal clear blue water, soft powdery sand, and scenic backdrop is the exact reason why Hawaii is a travel destination. As you sit on the shores of Lanikai, you’ll notice two small islands directly in front of you. These two islands, aptly named Na Mokulua, which in Hawaiian means The Two Islands, has always intrigued me. On any given day, schools of kayakers make the trip from either Lanikai Beach or the neighboring Kailua Beach Park, to “Mokes,” the name that the two islands is affectionately referenced to by locals. Kayaking isn't the only way to have fun Kailua there is the famous Lanikai pill box hike. This is all located in the city known as Kailua and is a great town to explore while you are out that area. Lot of good food and shopping and activities.

Diamond Head Trail (Hiking)

Diamond Head Trail is one of the most iconic hikes on the island of Oahu. This is a must for anyones first trip to the islands. After a morning hike, head over to near by Bogart's Cafe for a big breakfast. You'll end the day with a relaxing afternoon the quiet Kahala Beach Park.
