white pristine beaches and warm water make this an appealling spot that is one of my favourites. Turtles swim with you in the water

Hawaii has many rough beaches but this one reminds me of the waters you can see in cuba. Clear, light blue and swim friendly ocean. I learnt how to swim here (along with Kailua and Waimanalo) so it is calm and beautiful

This is one of the most scenic beaches I've been to. Clear waters and beautiful white sand. The sea is gentle here so young children can also enjoy. There are no public facilities here so be forewarned. This is a residential community with limited parking.

The beach was beautiful. Location was terrible. To get there, you have to park on residential streets and find a "beach pathway" and walk between people's yards to get out on the beach. There are no public restrooms, no bathrooms at all, and there were...More

Drop dead gorgeous beach and views. Water is crystal clear and beautifully blue color. White sand and calm waves. Parking is a bit of a pain, but worth the experience. This is a must go to place in Oahu.

Lanikai beach is hands down one of the best beaches on Oahu. It is fairly away from all the tourists at Waikiki Beach so you will be free to relax and have a great deal of space in. If you want to get away from...More

Beautiful white sand beach with clear turquoise water. It can feel crowded because everyone wants to be here and the beach is rather narrow. The ocean is gorgeous and definitely worth a visit. Parking is difficult. You could park at the Kailua Beach park and...More

· What actually makes this beach unique from the rest of the beaches on Oahu and even separates it from Kailua beach is that it is protected in shallow waters shore side of the 'Nā Mokulua' Islands. The waves break about 100 yards out and...More

Haven't been to the other spots you mentioned but my wife and I loved Lanikai! We found 3 turtles out there and we swam with them for half an hour before they moved on. It was awesome! Plus it's a quiet beach, less touristy... More
