Visiting Oahu – Kailua Town
December 4th, 2019
One of the more underrated Hawaii activities that you can enjoy during your visit to Oahu is visiting the local towns. Spread all over the island, and far from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu and Waikiki, are quaint towns where locals and residents call home, and offers a glimpse at life in Hawaii. Oahu features many great places to visit that feature great local restaurants and shops while showing off the easy way of life for those who make their home here. The town of Kailua is one of the best in Hawaii and will be one of the places that you visit that will make you want to call Oahu home.
Located just over the mountains from Honolulu, Kailua Town is the classic beach town that you would think of when thinking of towns in Hawaii. Found on the island’s Windward Coast, Kailua boasts not only a great town with plenty to do, but one of the best beaches in the entire island chain. Kailua Beach, and the nearby Lanikai Beach, have been recognized as two of the best beaches in the country, offering perfect ocean conditions, breathtaking views of offshore islands, and great ocean activities. Though these beaches can be quite busy, if you have the chance to visit either, definitely do so. You will love these beaches and the pristine surroundings that make a day at the beach here a day well spent.
On a Circle Island Tour around the island, you’ll stop at the famous Nu’uanu Pali Lookout, overlooking the entire Windward Coast, including Kailua and nearby Kaneohe. With the backing of the lush mountains and the fact that you’re never more than a couple miles from the beach, Kailua is very desirable location. In town, you can shop at the locally owned boutiques and dine at great locally owned restaurants, or just explore the town. There is a lot to do here, and even if you spend just a few hours in Kailua, you’ll fall for the town.
There are many great towns to visit on Oahu, including Haleiwa on the North Shore, Hawaii Kai on the South Shore, and of course, Kailua on the Windward side. Spend part of a day here, like the morning and early afternoon before your Oahu Luau, and get to know the easy way of life of Hawaii. These quaint towns are what make Oahu special and help to make the island home for residents of the islands.
