I really want to say this place is horribly overrated and don't bother wasting your time to come here. But that would be, because i would rather not share paradise with others. It was 38 years since I was last here, and there was really no disappointments. The sand is the best you will find anywhere on earth, kinda like walking in baby powder.... The water crystal blue, and very alluring.
With Kailua beach a stones throw away you can rent kayaks and paddle to the islands (2) and get away from any crowds. There really are not crowds on this beach as it is not highly advertised and considered local. If you go here take out whatever you bring in so the locals dont decide to lock it down for locals. Muhalo ! Enjoy!!
