Located on the Windward side of Oahu, Kailua is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. Just a 30 minute drive from Waikiki, a popular beach neighbourhood in Honolulu, it is said that Kailua is “Like stepping into a post card." Kailua is home to two of the most famous beaches in America, Lanikai Beach and Kailua Beach.
The top of your to-do list should be to visit the world-famous beaches. Both Lanikai Beach and Kailua Beach have been rated #1 in different publications. Once you see the turquoise water and the soft, white sand, you’ll know why. Lanikai is a 5 minute drive South of Kailua Beach and both are equally as suitable for a great day of sun and sand. Grab your breakfast and sunscreen and get to these hot spots as soon as possible. Being an island favorite, these beaches get pretty crowded early on in the day. There are plenty of watersports to be enjoyed for the adventurous; kayaking, kite boarding, body boarding, parasailing, and windsurfing are among the most popular. Snorkeling is never a bad option, either! Want to spend a day off the beach? No problem! Check out Mount Olomana Three Peaks Trail for an exhilarating, challenging, yet very rewarding hike. Maunawili Falls is another scenic hike with a breathtaking waterfall at the end. If you’re looking for some history, visit the Heiau (an ancient Hawaiian temple) that can be found on the outskirts of Kailua, or head over to Pearl Harbor, a site 35 minutes away that is dedicated to those who fought and lost their lives in the Pacific during World War II. When your day comes to an end, stop in at one of the many spas for a famous Lomi Lomi massage.
Kailua is 19 miles from the Honolulu International Airport where you can catch a bus, a taxi, a shuttle, or rent a car.
