Take it Easy Breezy in Kailua

When you need a break from the big city hubbub of Honolulu, Kailua is the remedy. It is a low-key oasis with a small town feel, but it delivers so much more.

Kailua and Lanikai beaches are among some of the top 21 beaches in the world according to National Geographic Magazine. And because their waters are so still, both beaches are perfect for swimming, SUP-ing and kayaking.

Stroll its hills or bike its flatlands. Enjoy Kailua at an easy pace.

Must Do
  1. Hiking Kailua Oahu

  2. Standup paddle boarding Kailua Oahu
    Stand-up Paddleboarding

    SUP enthusiasts love Kailua beach. The ocean breeze here is enough to move your board along, but soft enough to keep the experience serene. You might also spot a turtle or two. 

  3. Biking in Kailua Oahu
    Bike

    Kailua is bike-friendly because it is flat and easy to maneuver. Be sure to bring a lock for when you want to stop for a dip in the ocean. 

  4. Kayaking in Kailua Oahu
    Kayaking

    The other really wonderful thing about Kailua’s still waters is that it is perfect for kayaking. You can stick near the shore or paddle out to the Mokulua islands not far off shore.
