Located about 40 minutes from Waikiki is Kailua, a laid-back, beach town with mom-and-pop shops, art galleries, and quaint cafes — all five-minutes from award-winning Kailua Beach.
Perhaps the most famous town on Oahu’s windward side, Kailua is far removed from the bustle of Honolulu. As you drive through the neighborhood you’ll see million-dollar homes (the price to live in paradise), people riding bikes to and from the beach, and local businesses like surf stores and artisan coffee shops.
Kailua Beach is a three-mile stretch of shore with soft, white sand and turquoise waters. The waves are gentle, which make this spot great for kayaking, paddling and stand-up paddleboarding. You might even see people windsurfing! If you’re interested in trying out a water sport yourself, you can rent gear in Kailua Town. If not, spend some time relaxing in the sand while embracing the beauty of this beach.
