Lanikai beach may be small, but it has so much to offer. Lanikai actually stands for “heavenly sea” in the Hawaiian language. Lanikai Beach is consistently ranked as one of the top beaches in the world and for good reason. The water is what I can only describe as the perfect shade of turquoise. You will have the most amazing view of the Mokalua Islands here. Getting to the actual beach can be a bit tricky as you will have to park in the residential area and walk in between houses to reach the beach, but don’t let this dissuade you from going, this beach is so worth it.
The reason the beach is so small, (only 1/2 mile long ) is due to the seawalls that were built to protect the homes along the beach. Unfortunately, this has eroded the beach. It breaks my heart because as development increases along beaches, they continue to erode until they become nonexistent. So get out there and enjoy this beach while you can.
My swimsuit is from asos. I love that the bottoms are high waisted as you guys know I’m a sucker for high waisted anything. The swimsuit has beautiful embroidered flowers on it. I love the small pom-poms that line the suit as well. I love that the hat has the same small pom-poms on it as the swimsuit. Carrying the hat around the airport and on the plane ride was annoying, but I am glad I brought it with because it protected me from the sun and made for some great pictures. The swimsuit is only available in a one piece, however they have it in orange and white as well if you are looking for a two piece. I will have the links posted below for all three. Thanks for reading
