Best Oahu Beaches
East Oahu Beaches
The sand here is powder-soft, the ironwood trees tower overhead, and the waters are typically a turquoise-blue in hue. There are bathroom facilities, in addition to beach showers and picnic tables.
Kailua Beach Park is a wonderful beach for water sports, including kayaking and windsurfing. Those interested in water sports usually enter the water near the center and north end of the Kailua shore.
For those looking for swimming, especially for those with small children who may want a lifeguard station present, the best area to enter the ocean is near the boat ramp and around the area where the stream enters the ocean (on the beach's southern end).
