A vacation to Hawaii’s Lanikai Beach can be as exciting and invigorating as it is relaxing. Spend the day sun bathing on the expansive white sand beach in between swimming in the clear blue waters, or strap up your shoes and take to the trails! Here for the beach? The coral reef surrounding Lanikai Beach makes for great swimming conditions and even better snorkeling. If you choose to stay at Hale Kainalu you will be in one of few beachfront vacation rentals in Kainalu directly on the sands of Lanikai Beach. You could spend your entire vacation on the beach if it’s the backyard of your vacation rental. Adventurer in the group? You’re in luck, the Lanikai Pillbox Trail is located less than a mile from the beach.
Lanikai Pillbox Trail
Considered one of the best hikes in Oahu, the Lanikai Pillbox Trail, or Ka’iwa Ridge Trail, is an easy to moderate hike depending on the weather and offers an unparalleled view of the surrounding Hawaiian landscape. One way takes about 20-30 minutes, round trip it can be done in an hour. The hike can be steep so make sure to take proper footwear, and don’t worry there are plenty of spots to stop and rest along the trail. At the top you will find the famous “pillboxes”. These are just concrete structures left over from the second world war, mostly covered in art & graffiti, but now serve as great vantage points at the end of the trail. From here you can see Waimanalo, Kailua, Lanikai, and the Mokulua Islands, also known as The Mokes. You will not want to leave this off the schedule for your next Lanikai beachfront vacation.
