The two islands that you see from Lanikai or Kailua are the Mokulua Islands or as some call it the Mokes. One of the most adventurous and fun activities you can do on Oahu is go to the Mokulua Islands. You can reach them by kayaking, paddle boarding, paddling, or swimming. The largest island called Moku Nui is accessible by doing one of those things, however the smaller island called Moku Iki is off limits. While taking this adventure you are more than likely to see a few turtles. It is easiest to reach the islands when there is little to no wind. When you reach Moku Nui there is a small beach where you can relax and catch some rays. If you’re not up for relaxing this island is also great to explore. One side has some tidepools where you can jump in and swim. The other side has a little cove where you can cliff jump, snorkel, or just swim. This day we opted for the cliff jumping and swimming! The journey to the islands is a rewarding experience and unlike anything else on the island.
