This Hawaiian paradise town is perfect for any beach lover’s vacation. The town is known as a resort town on the island of Oahu along the shore. Hawaii’s picturesque beaches have clear turquoise waters and soft white sand, as well as excellent surf or swim spots up and down the coast. Top beaches in Kailua include Lanikai Beach, ranked as one of the best beaches in the world, and Kailua Beach, once ranked as the number one beach in the United States.
Hike the Lanikai Pillbox Trail or the Kaiwa Ridge Trail to get the best views of the ocean all around. The Maunawili Falls Trail is another popular hiking spot in town. The 2.5-mile trail leads you to the stunning swimming hole and scenery at Maunawili Falls. The Kailua Farmer’s Market is something you truly can’t miss for all the locally grown fruits and veggies, as well as the handmade souvenir crafts.
Hawaii is beautiful and warm all year round, but the best time to visit Kailua is from January through May. Kailua is full of sleepy, relaxed beach town vibes all around. Locals in town are relaxed and open-minded, and most residents work hard to preserve the environment and local culture.
