Oʻahu’s East Coast (Windward) is home to the seaside town of Kailua, a Hawaiʻi beach mecca. With stretches of golden sands flanked by dramatic cliffs, it’s a natural feast for the eyes. You won’t find a hotel in sight; only a coastal community of friendly cafes, family-run eateries, charming boutique shops, local markets, and two drop-dead gorgeous beaches.

Distance from Waikīkī to Kailua: 30-minutes drive
