About Peter Kay

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings.

Kayak the “Mokes” at Lanikai beach on Oahu in Hawaii

Go to Lanikai beach and kayak to the Mokuleia islands One of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Oahu in Hawaii is Lanikai Beach.  The parking situation is horrible, however, so make sure you go there on an off day, i.e. not the weekends.  If you want an extra added adventure, rent out
