Oahu Pictures - Lanikai Beach
Oahu Pictures - Lanikai Beach - is north of Bellows Beach and south of Alala Point in Kailua. It is one of the most photographed beaches in Hawaii, so you’ll definitely get a few ideal shots for your scrapbook. Lanikai means “sea heaven”. If you ever witness one of its sunrises, or especially moon rises, you’ll see that it has earned its name.
The soft white sand seems massage your toes as they sift between them. No wonder Lanikai Beach has been often voted one of the best beaches in Hawaii. This what used to be a hidden gem is no longer a well-kept secret so it does get crowded on the weekends and holidays. It is only accessible through a neighborhood public beach access and parking on the street is limited. On windy days Lanikai Beach is great for windsurfing and kite boarding.
During calm conditions is a marvelous place to ocean kayak. The Mokulua Islands, Moko Nui and Moko Iki, are three quarters of a mile offshore. The Mokulua Islands are a favorite trek to venture by kayak to the when conditions are favorable. It takes about 30 minutes to reach the islands. Spend the day exploring or just kicking back with a few necessities on these little offshore getaways.
BIO about Dana Edmunds, Photographer of Lanikai Beach Image:
Dana Edmunds – I love what I do! I started taking photos of waves of the Manhattan Beach Pier with my Kodak Instamatic. I’ve been chasing photos of all kinds ever since.
After spending a bunch of years shooting surf and Maui surf culture in the 70’s, I returned to Southern California and attended Art Center Collage of Design. Upon graduation, it was back to Hawaii to continue the journey.
Location, studio, people and places. Just me and my camera, or collaborating with fantastic clients, friends and family. On assignment or working on a personal project, I’m constantly in search of another great image.
