We rented a car and drove to Kailua beach on a Monday from busy Waikiki. it's a beautiful beach. It stretches Far East and west from park entry points. Sadly, you could see the beach has had some erosion so it isn't as wide as it once was but still wonderful. It's breezy and the waters are calm perfect for very young children. Our boys now pre-teens demanded a beach with more waves so after visiting Kailua and its wonderful town heading for the North Shore.
