Wearing: Zimmermann playsuit and Converse sneakers.

While the North Shore was being pounded with enormous swell making swimming impossible, Melissa and I had an amazing day road tripping down the East Coast of Oahu to the calm of Lanikai Beach. If you are ever in Oahu you cannot miss out on visiting this beach. We climbed Lanikai Pillboxes in the heat for the extremely rewarding panoramic views of the hills and Lanikai Beach before venturing down. Crystal clear water lapping along clean white sands with views of the twin islands Nā Mokulua off shore. This is how I remember Hawaii…
