- Guaranteed turtle sitings
- Firing surf during the winter
- Beautiful, easy to access beach
Laniakea beach or Lani’s, is a world-class surf break located on the North Shore. It is also referred to as “Turtle beach”, because this natural sanctuary attracts so many of the endangered Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle or “Honu”...making this the perfect place to see a few up close.
If you're driving toward Waimea Bay, Laniakea is the first beach you'll see on your left. You can't miss it - there are always a bunch of cars parked along the road. Find a spot, cruise down the long beach for a bit, and post up for the day. During a winter north swell, the waves can get pretty amazing. If you're interested in checking out the turtles, head to the north end of the beach where there is a protected cove.
Please be sure to respect the turtles, and give them their space.
