Photo Spot in Oahu: Lanikai Beach

Lanikai means “heavenly ocean,” and is too fitting for one of the best beaches in the world! About half a mile long, Lanikai beach is perfect for sunrises since it sits on the East side of Oahu. The waters are calm enough for snorkeling and easy swimming, with some patches of reef. We love this location for engagement photos. If you think of the perfect Hawaiian beach, this is it!
