oahu day 3: beach-hopping

No comments
We spent our 3rd day beach-hopping through some of Oahu’s beaches – some of the most stunning in the world.

I was so excited to come back to beautiful Lanikai after our first evening exploring it. Given that this is my first time visiting a tropical destination, it was absolutely breathtaking to experience turquoise waters, pure white sand and breezy palm trees in real life.

Kailua is Lanikai’s lesser-known neighbour that has more of park vibe than tropical beach front. The sand is more filled with shells and pebbles, but when it began to rain, the overcast clouds created a stunning, moody backdrop.

To get our daily fill of acai, we hit up Andy’s Bakery in the centre of Manoa Marketplace, a delicious place to grab acai, sandwiches and other fresh deliciousness.

On the eastern side of Oahu lies the beautiful Sandy Beach, probably my favourite that we had a chance to visit. Between sporadic bursts of rain we wandered in and among the rocks and watched the sunset and I felt completely in awe of the beauty sprawled peacefully out before us.

We finished off our day of beach adventures and sandy explorations with a fresh poke bowl from Ono’s, a hidden hole in the wall in Honolulu that the locals know well.
