How to Convert LocalDate to Date in Java 8 and Above

We can use the Date.from(Instant instant) method to convert a LocalDate to a Date.

Note: We will need to use ZoneId.systemDefault() to get the default time zone.


package org.code2care.examples;

import java.time.LocalDate;
import java.time.ZoneId;
import java.util.Date;

public class ExampleStringToDateJava {

    public static void main(String... args) {

        LocalDate localDate =;
        Date date = Date.from(localDate.atStartOfDay(ZoneId.systemDefault()).toInstant());
