Kailua Beach, on the island of Oahu, is actually descriptive of two distincly different beaches separated by a small and very scenic point. To the west is Kailua beach proper, an approximately two mile stretch of sandy white beach almost always blessed with nearshore waves not enough to be threatening but large enough to attract folks wanting to frolick in the surf.
To the east is the Lanikai beach shoreline, a stretch of about a mile, which due to the outer reef is protected from the wave action that typifies the nearby Kailua Beach. Two islands, about a half-mile offshore provide a postcard view and a great place for kayakers and well-conditioned swimmers" to journey to. Here the water is clear and calm and hosting of a number of coral heads allowing for great snorkeling.
As a bedroom community of Honoulu which lies on the other side of the mountain, Kailua offers the small town attraction of shops, eateries, and everything one would need to enjoy its great beaches. The neighborhood setting provides a buffer between the urban sprawl and the beaches which make for much smaller crowds than one would find at beaches in town or on the well-frequented North shore of Oahu.
